19 Dec A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF ORGANIZATIONS DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH OF THEIR IT BUDGET IS BEING SPENT ON IT RESILIENCE
Data from Databarracks’ annual Data Health Check survey revealed a number of insights into organizational attitudes and approaches towards IT resiliency, including:
- 25 percent do not know what percentage of their IT budget should be allocated for disaster recovery and business continuity;
- Only 43 percent of organizations have tested their disaster recovery processes over the past 12 months;
- 29 percent of respondents answered “less than £1,000” when asked ‘how much annually does your organization spend on backup/DR solutions’.
Peter Groucutt, managing director of Databarracks comments: “It’s often difficult for IT to secure investment for resiliency because it’s not seen as a particularly dynamic or sexy investment that will add value like a new customer-facing system. But we all know we need to invest in resilience to ensure our continued operation.”
