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.
