The current coronavirus pandemic has companies throughout
the world scrambling to continue business operations while keeping
their people safe.
Business Continuity Planning (BCP) is more important than ever,
but many small organizations may not know how to create such a
plan, and even governments and large corporations may not have
considered what to do about their mission-critical custom apps.
What is business continuity?
In short, business continuity is your organization's plan to continue operations in spite of short- to long-term disruptions. BCP involves human resources, facilities, finances, and information technology. Even today, many companies have systems that require fully-functioning, on-premises servers and networks – and people must be onsite to use them.
Other companies may be utilizing remote access software to allow users to reach their office computers, but these options may be untested, unreliable, or users may not know how to use them.
Cloud Computing and Your Custom App
One way to ensure the availability of your apps is to consider the Cloud. Unlike on-premises computing, hosting your custom app in the Cloud means it can be available at all times regardless of your organization's ability to use your offices or where your employees' are working. You can keep your operations running from literally any location with Internet access.
