Consumer. Partner. Supplier. Employee. Shareholder. Every stakeholder in today’s ecosystem expects to have services and data available 24x7x365. But most organizations are scrambling today to put processes and technologies in place to close the gap between what the enterprise demands and what IT can actually deliver — known as the "Availability Gap".

Join Doug Hazelman, Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam® Software, as he interviews a special guest, Glenn O’Donnell, Director of Research at Forrester. In the December 2015 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Veeam, The Ongoing IT Struggle: Delivering Availability 24X7X365, Forrester identified Availability strategies to help organizations address the key challenges faced today, including:

  • Almost every application is now deemed business- or mission-critical. Find out why anything less than all-the-time, every-application Availability is unacceptable.
  • Operational failures and human events lead the cause for downtime, affecting revenue, productivity, customer confidence and the corporate reputation. Learn how to develop an in-place Availability strategy to reduce your organization’s impact.
  • Forrester reports that developing a comprehensive cloud strategy is critical, or high priority for 69% of mid-level enterprise organizations. Discover why IT organizations must have a clear understanding of the factors affecting Availability and how to create a solid business continuity plan.
