This latest Regus survey, which interviewed over 12,000 senior business people in 85 countries, also shows that firms are more likely to have an IT disaster recovery function to help them recover operations within 24 hours than to be able to provide alternative workspace for their staff, should they be unable to access their usual work
premises due to a disaster More than half of firms, however, report that they would
invest in affordable alternative workplace recovery if the service were suitably priced.
Although larger firms are better prepared for disaster recovery (DR) than smaller
companies, 26% of larger corporates still remain without a DR facility for their IT systems, and 40% have no workspace DR facility. It is the conclusion of this study that, given the widespread availability and relative low cost of IT and workspace DR,
those organisations with none in place are potentially taking an unnecessary risk with their shareholders assets.
