The cloud is undoubtedly an accepted part of your daily business operations. But as you become more comfortable and knowledgeable about the cloud – and as cloud capabilities continue to expand – you may be asking, “What else can the cloud do for my company?”
“One key answer to that question is, “The cloud can help you achieve organisational resilience.” This means not only having the ability to anticipate and plan for major or minor disruptions, but to bounce back from them.”
The report, Cloud Complexity: The Need for Resilience, which was sponsored by Sungard Availability Services, shows that organisationally resilient companies make addressing cloud computing issues a top priority to further bolster their resilience. To that end, the report provides five building blocks of cloud resilience that can help companies become more intrinsically robust and able to adapt to the new opportunities and potential risks the cloud brings. The cloud’s relationship with organisational resilience is highlighted in a newly-released report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), the research and analysis division of The Economist Group, the sister company to The Economist newspaper.
