Disaster recovery plans aren’t much good if they don’t work. And if they don’t work, then the time devoted to their development has been pretty much a waste of time.
Decision makers in businesses, especially the executives, like certainty. They want to have confidence that things will go as planned. And while no one plans a disaster, they want to know that the recovery effort after a disaster will work.
The survival of the business may depend on it.
You can take your DR plan to a fortune teller, but I wouldn’t put much stock in that. Why not just try it?
