Do Corporate Disaster Plans Effectively Cover Warehousing?

    Online News published in DMReview.com
October 22, 2001

The information management industry appears divided over whether or not corporate disaster recovery plans adequately cover data warehousing and business intelligence programs, suggests a new DM Review Interactive poll.

The informal poll included responses from 270 industry professions. Of those polled, only 22 percent (59 respondents) believed their disaster recovery procedures "absolutely" protect data warehousing and business intelligence. That compares with 29 percent (78 respondents) who were "somewhat" sure and 49 percent (133 respondents) who were either "unsure" or responded "not at all."

The mixed results don't surprise industry executives. Even though analysts and research firms are calling for more reviews of corporate disaster planning procedures in light of the events of September 11, a new study of 422 data managers by AFCOM finds that only 53 percent of those surveyed intend to review their procedures.

"We are surprised by the number because we thought it would be higher," says Brian Koma, AFCOM's vice president of marketing. "One answer might be that many of the respondents had conducted a recent check already or thought their existing procedures were pretty good."
