Strategic BCP® Positioned in Gartner Leaders Quadrant for Business Continuity Planning Software
Cloud-based ResilienceONE® BCM software solution evaluated for ability to execute and completeness of vision
PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The newly released Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Planning Software” positions ResilienceONE®( )BCM software, empowered by Strategic BCP®, in the “Leaders” quadrant for combined completeness of vision and ability to execute. ResilienceONE was one of five solutions in that quadrant, among the 18 BCMP solutions evaluated.
Key criteria used in that Magic Quadrant evaluation focused on how vendors provided functionality to BCMP users, including:
-- "The ease of use in the hands of business users, not IT or BCM professionals only. -- "The ease and extent of customization--through configuration (not code changes) by the customer, not the vendor--to your organization's production operations/continuity hierarchy, branding and terminology. -- "The ease of reporting, including modifying report formats provided by the vendor and creating new report formats."
Multiple ResilienceONE features address those criteria. It uses versatile relational-database linking to identify relationships among business processes, associated assets, personnel, facilities, and vendors, while providing freedom for users to incorporate their own hierarchy labels. This provides functionality for Business Impact Analysis (BIA) with automatic calculation of Recovery Timeframe Objectives, for custom reporting, and for “what-if” strategic business analysis. ResilienceONE also uses jargon-free basic business questions for ease-of-use among non-BCM-specialists during data gathering and subsequent analysis.
“We are proud to be positioned in the Leaders quadrant,” says Frank Perlmutter, president and co-founder of Strategic BCP, “since we designed ResilienceONE specifically to match the needs and practices of BC professionals. Our unique BCP Genome(TM) that gives customers the ability to execute compliant BCM plans against 101 criteria synthesized from leading industry standards, regulations and best practices, is just one example of how we have continued to push the envelope.”
