Proactive is Gateway’s approach to deliver an effective Backup and Recovery Service that can be a Real Life Saver The benefits of a proactive approach
What businesses do care about is making profit and the quality of the service they provide to their customers. While backup and recovery operations are often treated as necessary in an IT organisation, they only become of strategic importance during an IT failure in recovering mission-critical information.
The outbreak of a blended threat, a natural disaster or a regional catastrophe such as an oil refinery explosion, could leave a business without the resources to locate, restore and recover each data instance.
Yet any interruption to service—whether IT-related or not—will affect profits, lower customer satisfaction and even threaten the long-term prospects of the business.
In Gateway’s experience, those businesses that respond positively with a robust strategy for dealing with worst-case scenarios can reap substantial business benefits.
