How To Define Business Continuity

Defining business continuity isn’t always as simple as it may seem. Luckily, we’re here to help. With the help of some of Datto’s MSP partners, we asked them what business continuity means to them.

While there are many facets and intricacies to a business continuity plan, any one part does not constitute the whole. Data backup and disaster recovery are integral parts of a plan, however they aren’t business continuity, these services alone are not enough to protect your critical business data.

Here is how some of our partners describe business continuity:

“Business continuity is, quite simply, the ability to keep one’s IT operations up and running while experiencing minimal impacts during events that would normally disrupt operations in their entirety.”- Matthew Hahn, Vice President of Network Services, SWK Technologies, Inc.

“Business continuity is exactly what it sounds like. It’s the ability to continue operating your business in the midst of a technical disaster; Datto’s technology makes this possible for businesses of any size.”- Chad Kempt, Owner, Fast Computers.

“Business continuity is about protecting your essential business operations. The goal is to minimize negative consequences of a disaster from occurring. To identify threats that would cause turmoil to your business and take appropriate steps to remedy them. It’s all about being prepared and taking a proper course of action.”- Michael Battaglia, Backup and Disaster Recovery Engineer, Flexible Systems.
