Flexible businesses for reliable continuity

How adopting flexible infrastructure practices can ensure businesses are able to stay trading and prepare for the future

To compound the issue, advancements in technology continue unabated. As new systems and tools are launched, organisations looking to make the most of the benefits must adapt their processes to keep up. Sometimes, those that aren’t prepared for these issues find themselves with a patchwork of technologies that create areas of weakness and possibilities for failure. Often, when something goes wrong – such as two versions of the same software that simply don’t work together – it’s very difficult to find the root of the problem as it is so deeply embedded in the infrastructure.

For these reasons, organisations of all sizes need to have a strategy in place that promotes flexibility. In a world of shrinking margins, shorter lead times and just-in-time delivery, businesses must rely on efficient processes to stay afloat. There is little room for error.

The need for a secure and effective business continuity plan is also now beginning to affect smaller companies. While large enterprises have more complex procedures to maintain, smaller businesses are now starting to implement the kind of processes and technology to warrant a good policy should something go wrong.

There are a number of things that can be done to minimise impact on business should the worst happen. By ensuring the infrastructure of the company is flexible enough to cope with the short-term changes while maintaining service excellence to customers (then putting a strategy in place that exploits it) business continuity does not need to spell disaster.
