High Availability

Resiliency Services

An end to end approach to high availability based on technology, processes and organization

Today’s businesses demand 24x365 availability of information in order to make smart decisions, push innovation, take advantage of opportunities, and stay one step ahead of the competition. There’s no tolerance for downtime. To meet these demands, IT systems that support the business must be online and accessible, providing near-continuous availability of information through both planned and unplanned events. However, companies also need to consider cost constraints and carefully determine the right level of resilience for different parts of the business, striking a balance between investment and risk.

IBM can help you understand how to achieve that balance with our portfolio of resiliency consulting services. We take an end-to-end, holistic approach to high availability focused on the three key elements of any IT environment: technology, processes, and organization.
