Resilience

When margins are paper thin, can your business afford even a few hours of system failure and disrupted services?

Do you know how resilient your systems are to hardware failure, cybercrime, human error or natural disaster? Do you have a robust Disaster Recovery Plan? Are your services operationally ready? Are you meeting the terms of your Service Level Agreements? Can your architecture cope with unexpected customer growth?

If you’re not regularly asking yourself these questions and consistently addressing vulnerabilities then start right now. You may have a regulatory responsibility and crucially – your business’s survival could depend upon it.

One large bank experiencing a few days of slowdowns and outages can affect tens of millions of customers. Failure and outages are an unfortunate fact of life. The majority of service disruptions have their origins in the internal systems of a business, and while failing to hit the headlines are nevertheless extremely costly in terms of lost revenue, lost custom, and lost man-hours as your IT team struggle to fix the issue. A simple mistake such as an incorrectly uploaded batch file that can’t be rolled back, can lead to an entire day of downtime. Have you done your due diligence?

Service Resilience is not just about the availability of your services and applications. Organisations also need to have an effective implementable recovery plan that takes into account changing demand and scalability requirements to meet your future business needs.

Availability

The quality of being ready when needed

Performance & Scalability

Measurement of an activity’s success through increasing demand

Recoverability

The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties

Framework Implementation and Assessment

Leveraging Enterprise Blueprints' industry-proven service resilience methodology, a service resilience framework and associated programme will be implemented. However, if you have already started the journey, Enterprise Blueprints’s capability map can support a maturity assessment of your approach.

Resilience Evaluation

Enterprise Blueprints will help identify your critical business processes, creating “service chains” that cut across your business, application, service, information, infrastructure and security architectures. This allows your organisation’s service resilience to pragmatically identify the ‘gaps’ that need to be remediated.

Gap Analysis

Enterprise Blueprints will quickly identify the resilience gaps that require remediation. Depending on your risk appetite, business prioritisation and resilience framework, the architectural work required to comply with your regulators will be roadmapped for you
