Impacts and Recommendations

  • New and differentiated HCIS infrastructures will offer I&O leaders new capabilities for recovery, resiliency and restoration
  • Traditional IT disaster recovery (DR) tools need to be viable/interoperable with HCIS architectures, forcing I&O leaders to re-evaluate these tools
  • Any changes necessitated by the enterprise or I&O leaders as part of HCIS adoption will impact IT DR processes
  • Any updates to the IT DR processes will require I&O leaders to consider mergers, acquisitions or business failure risks of HCIS vendors prior to making changes
