In today’s environment, business continuity is a necessity. As organizations embrace digital transformation and turn to IT for almost all most critical operations, downtime can be crippling. Those that are able to tolerate technology failures transparently—so the business remains up and running— can drive dramatic gains in competitive advantage, customer engagement and business innovation.
However, achieving the highest levels of business continuity, with zero recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs), has been possible only for the largest companies and their most business-critical applications. The associated costs and complexity have simply been too much for most organizations to achieve those levels.
That is no longer the case.
This white paper discusses a new active/active stretched cluster technology that allows companies of all sizes to achieve the highest levels of business continuity without the costs and complexities that have typically marked thi
Dans le contexte actuel, la continuité d’activité est une nécessité. A l’heure où les entreprises adoptent la transformation numérique et se tournent vers l’informatique pour pratiquement toutes leurs opérations stratégiques, les interruptions de service peuvent constituer un handicap sévère. Celles qui parviennent à faire face aux défaillances technologiques de manière transparente (l’entreprise demeure opérationnelle) peuvent accroître considérablement leur avantage concurrentiel, l’engagement de leurs clients et leur capacité d’innovation.
Toutefois, jusqu’à présent, seules les plus grandes entreprises et leurs applications les plus stratégiques étaient en mesure d’atteindre les niveaux les plus avancés de continuité d’activité, avec des objectifs de point de restauration (RPO) et de délai de restauration (RTO) nuls. En effet, les coûts et la complexité connexes étaient tout simplement trop élevés pour que la plupart des entreprises puissent atteindre de tels objectifs.

The leadership of a new, marquee pharma
manufacturer approached KPMG with a paradox: It was
certainly marquee, but not new. As the highly publicized
spin-off of a global health services conglomerate, the
company began life with $18 billion in annual revenues,
an established product pipeline and instant
membership in the S&P 100. Reliant on the back-office
functions of its parent, it needed to quickly acquire the
back-office sinews of a truly stand-alone company: ERP
systems and core processes for finance, operations
and human resources.
During an intensive three-year engagement, KPMG
brought the vision of the company’s leaders to life,
working towards a target operating model through the
disciplined implementation of new systems, processes,
training and staffing. The multidisciplinary approach
eventually touched the lives of every one of the
company’s 21,000 employees, in 170 countries.
And as KPMG’s delivered tangible results, something
intangible emerged – a new company culture,
