A Model for Resilience


Business resilience is the ability to anticipate risk, mitigate the impact and move forward with confidence as you transform your business. Ultimately, it’s about adapting well in the face of unprecedented change and unforeseen adversity, ensuring critical applications and data are always available.

It’s not an overnight process, as true transformation never is. However, this three-step model provides clearly defined steps towards achieving and attaining the resilience and agility you need.

Step 1: Assess your resilience. This crucial first step lays your resilience foundation and its importance cannot be stressed enough: The more thorough you are with your assessment, the more resilient, recoverable and agile you will be.

Step 2: Design and implement. Now that you’ve assessed your resilience readiness, the next step is to match the requirements of each app and workload with the infrastructure that best aligns with their resiliency and recovery goals.

Step 3: Manage and test. As you connect infrastructures, apps, workloads and people to internal or third-party IT services, implement a “manage and test” process throughout to eliminate surprises in the go-live stage. In addition, set up a routine testing schedule to spot problems and look for improvement opportunities.
