11621: Data Resiliency - Glitches & Gotchas

Monday, August 6, 2012: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Elite 1 (Anaheim Marriott Hotel)
Speaker: Rebecca Levesque(21st Century Software)

In this session you will learn the difference between continuity of service level commitments versus the real timelines of restoring data. Elevated to a business imperative, data resiliency and the extent of operational risk elevates beyond Disaster Recovery and Availability infrastructure. The grid, consistency groups, GDPS, outsourcing, DR exercises, and other solutions lure IT and business management into a false sense of security. Recent studies show more than 78% of IT disruptions (human error, accidental deletions, hardware failure, and data in cache) are not resolved by availability solutions.  If you think this does not apply to your scenario, you cannot afford to miss this session! 

Many companies eliminate backup solutions without a complete understanding of application backup vulnerability. These vulnerabilities are paramount and require attention because they expose weaknesses and gaps directly affecting customers and generating bad press and consumer dissatisfaction. With the abundance of mobile apps, Twitter, and blogs, Glitches & Gotchas become public knowledge within minutes. Your CIO does not want to become front page news if a disruption occurs.

Our speaker, Rebecca Levesque, has 25+ years of experience helping customers understand their vulnerabilities on the z/OS mainframe platform. Her management experience and technical expertise blend to weave a compelling story with real life examples in this session.
