Yet, after investing hundreds of millions of dollars into new enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), master data management systems (MDM), business intelligence (BI) data warehousing systems or big data environments, many companies are still plagued with disconnected, “dysfunctional” data—a massive, expensive sprawl of disparate silos and unconnected, redundant systems that fail to deliver the desired single view of the business.

To succeed in a tough marketplace, small businesses must be accessible, without significant interruption, even in the most adverse situations. This kind of ongoing accessibility is an important aspect of business continuity - a critical success strategy that doesn't just happen, but requires proactive planning. Although there are several aspects to a business continuity plan, a major component of any plan should be the SME's communications capabilities, not just its equipment or data. This paper will explore how different kinds of interruptions can adversely affect an SME's business continuity and illustrate how, through advanced features such as resiliency and mobility, Avaya's IP Office can help SMEs overcome interruptions and maintain business continuity.

The data center infrastructure is central to the overall IT architecture. It is where most business-critical applications are hosted and various types of services are provided to the business. Proper planning of the data center infrastructure design is critical, and performance, resiliency, and scalability need to be carefully considered. Another important aspect of the data center design is the flexibility to quickly deploy and support new services. Designing a flexible architecture that can support new applications in a short time frame can result in a significant competitive advantage. The basic data center network design is based on a proven layered approach that has been tested and improved over the past several years in some of the largest data center implementations in the world. The layered approach is the foundation of a data center design that seeks to improve scalability, performance, flexibility, resiliency, and maintenance.

Often overlooked on Amazon Web Services (AWS), an extremely effective cloud disaster recovery (DR) strategy is to spread the application stack across regions versus availability zones. This eBook provides a guide for planning and implementing a robust cross-region cloud disaster recovery (CDR) plan for business continuity and critical application uptime on AWS-based applications.

There is little question that cloud is well established as a way to deliver business applications. Based on IDC research, over 70% of manufacturing companies are using hosted applications somewhere within their supply chain, with another 25% considering it. The most popular supply chain management (SCM) application areas are transportation related (transportation management, global trade management), where the "network effect" (i.e., carrier pooling, regulatory impact) can leverage both shared knowledge and existing connectivity along with sales and operations planning, demand signal management, and business intelligence/analytics. The concern that cloud is "risky" is increasingly taking a back seat to the perceived benefits of the technology. Indeed, those benefits, both achieved and anticipated, are significant, including cost, speed of implementation, and the ability to "consume" new capabilities and functionality easily and transparently.
