Essential Features

Resilience strategy design

Create and document a holistic business resilience strategy. IBM consultants work with you onsite to connect business and IT objectives and develop a customized strategy to address your IT resilience and disaster recovery issues. We provide you with multiple options so you can select the best solution for your business continuity and resilience goals.


Resilience architecture design

Design a resilient architecture that supports your recovery objectives, strengthens your IT infrastructure, and increases responsiveness. Using our expertise, tools, and time-tested methodology, we define a customized solution that includes a plan for implementation and ongoing operations. IBM resilience experts work with your resources to create a cost-effective resilient architecture design that maximizes your investments.


Technical procedure development

Build actionable technical plans and processes to support your critical operations. IBM provides documented technical recovery procedures that allow someone with knowledge of the IT platform – but not of your environment – to execute them. IBM technical procedure development also helps reduce the time and resources needed to create step-by-step technical recovery instructions.


Resilience plan development

Develop actionable business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis management plans. We help you build plans to handle disruptions, manage regulatory requirements, and maintain continuous business operations. We’ll also help you create and maintain up-to-date resilience plan documentation.


Resilience program design

Establish a governance structure to keep your resilience strategies and plans current, and meet the demands of business and industry regulators. IBM experts can also help you successfully implement and manage your resilience program design by providing you with a step-by-step resilience program road map.
