Computacenter is Europe’s leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services.

Its 12,000 employees deliver on-site services in nearly 60 countries and supply IT hardware and software to customers in more than 100 countries.

The firm offers its customers disaster recovery (DR) provision as an optional additional service to minimise the impact of disruption in the event of an incident. Service Manager Mick Fensome explains why the firm chose Sungard AS as its business continuity partner: “The repercussions of downtime for our customers include revenue loss, reputational damage and could even affect their ability to stay in business. It’s vital we can offer them a best-of breed disaster recovery service that gives them the peace of mind they can recover quickly and effectively from an interruption.”
