All organisations face unexpected disruptions to their business and IT operations. Whether brought on by disaster or a new market opportunity, change can make you rethink your approach to risk.
You can minimise risk and adapt to disruptive events by embedding resiliency into and across your environment—making your business and IT operations more available, safe and agile.

In fact, we are the only provider that offers SLA-backed services across a hybrid environment.

Case Study: Unitil energizes business continuity for greater resilience

Case Study: Gerber Life Insurance gains resiliency on a budget
Gerber Life recognised the need for a contemporary disaster recovery approach for its distributed infrastructure and turned to the Sungard AS Managed Recovery Program, which now provides the people, processes and infrastructure needed to recover critical applications and quickly restore business operations.
We turned to Sungard AS, which made implementing a new path to DR easier to accomplish than we expected. When they say ‘managed service,’ they mean managing the whole process, from top to bottom, and they continue to maintain it with the same level of attention to detail and rigor as in the initial implementation.

Case Study: IT transformation helps Menzies' global expansion plans take flight
As a company that services 300 airlines, has customers at 140 airports worldwide, handles 1.2 million aircraft movements a year and 1.7 million tons of cargo, Menzies supplies almost half the UK's retailers and understands the importance of meeting deadlines. Failure at any point would mean planes that don't take off on time and empty store shelves.
Menzies is a genuinely 24/7 business. For us, it's not just a few computers data processing overnight but operations all around the world going at full tilt. When everyone is sleeping here in the UK, our teams in Australia and the West Coast of America are still working and the UK distribution business is at its peak.
