SunGard Availability Services to Highlight Managed Recovery Program at DRI International 2012 Conference
WAYNE, Pa., May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – SunGard Availability Services disaster recovery experts will join other industry professionals from around the world to discuss recovery lifecycle best practices and strategies at the Disaster Recovery Institute International’s 2012 conference (booth #401), May 20-23, 2012 at The Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans.
During DRI 2012, SunGard will highlight its Managed Recovery Program (MRP), which helps organizations with complex IT environments take the pain out of application recovery. With this service, SunGard experts manage the entire recovery lifecycle for organizations, helping lower the cost, burden and risk in the recovery processes. Organizations working with SunGard MRP have been able to raise their confidence in recovery, while refocusing their efforts on primary production operations.
SunGard is nominated for awards in two categories in DRI International conference’s first ever Awards of Excellence Program, which honors individuals and corporations who are leaders and innovators in the fields of continuity management, technology recovery in a disaster (DR), and crisis management. SunGard’s Continuity Management Solution is nominated for Planning Software of the Year and its emergency communication tool NotiFind® is nominated for Notification System of the Year.
“We are excited to participate in the DRI 2012 Conference and to be nominated for the first annual Awards of Excellence Program,” said Tracey Forbes, vice president of software business development for SunGard Availability Services. “SunGard has three decades of experience specializing in tailoring disaster recovery solutions, managing the recovery process and helping organizations achieve the goal of operational resiliency. That’s why 70 percent of Fortune 50 companies trust SunGard to keep their IT environments up and running.”
At DRI 2012, SunGard will showcase its Managed Recovery Program that manages the complete recovery cycle for organizations from test to recovery and provides high availability for the organization’s most critical business applications.
Also at DRI, SunGard will showcase its new Test Management solution, which allows an organization to track and validate tests conducted on business continuity or disaster recovery plans. The Test Management module fully integrates with SunGard LDRPS (The Living Disaster Recovery Planning System). The module guides users through the testing process — from set-up to reporting on the findings — and provides auditable documentation to internal and external auditors.
The SunGard Consulting practice will also feature its new proprietary Risk, Resilience and Recovery (R3) framework methodology which leverages software tools such as the RiskView Business Risk Analytics(TM) solution from Rev2® to quantifiably measure risk. This combination of proprietary and industry best practices and tools to better assess, prioritize and manage controls for operational risks focuses on the three pillars of operational resilience: business continuity management, information security and IT operations.
DRI International 2012 is designed to gather industry experts, communicate best practices and strategies in disaster recovery across industries like government, commercial, industrial, and institutional work environments.
