Sungard Availability Services is delighted to have been recognised as this year’s Continuity & Resilience Provider of the Year by The BCI at last night’s European Awards ceremony held in Dublin’s luxurious Marker Hotel.
It is always an honour to receive endorsement from our industry colleagues and the customers we support, and this latest award is no exception.
“Our entry to the Continuity and Resilience Provider (Service/Product) 2016 Education, Good Practice and Events Publications category focused on our key European achievements, innovations and initiatives of 2015.”
These included: Workplace and DC expansions across the UK, Ireland and India; our Recovery as a Service solution which Gartner Inc. placed into the leader position in its inaugural Disaster Recovery as a Service Magic Quadrant (April 2015); our ‘Business that never stops’, ‘Cloud Hangover’, ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ and ‘Atout DSI‘ initiatives to drive forward awareness and understanding in all matters of continuity & resilience, and finally the recovery support shown to those European customers whose offshore operations were affected in the Chennai floods last winter.
“We are also pleased to see our peers get due recognition for their achievements too, as it demonstrates the importance of appropriate continuity and resilience planning for today’s organisations!”
