The term “disaster recovery” or “DR” has been kicking around the world of IT for decades and yet, it still has many different meanings. Some people think it means getting your data center up and running quickly after something bad happens. Others look at it as figuring out a way to keep things running until you can get back to your data center after something bad happens. Disaster Recovery can also mean getting your organization ready so that when something bad happens, your IT team is prepared.
Today’s healthcare IT landscape is shifting from an environment where data needs to not just be stored and shared, but fully utilized to make informed business and patient-care decisions. To compete in the digital economy, healthcare organizations must evolve data centers to become more data-centric and data-driven.
