We had unbelievably gorgeous weather this past weekend in Atlanta. Low 80s, low humidity. Very uncharacteristic of June.

If you have a disaster recovery plan in place for your business, that is great. But many businesses don’t. Worse yet, of more than 6,000 IT practitioners from 18 countries, only 53 percent of survey respondents felt confident their organizations can recover from a disaster. Should a disaster occur, can your company effortlessly pull together resources necessary for a swift recovery? Some considerations are in my mashup this week:
