Session Summary: We have all heard the term data backup, and know that businesses of any size should have data backup in place. But does it work? It is there to get your business up and running again as soon as possible if something were to go wrong. Did you know that you can test your data backup solution? How long would your business be down if you didn’t have any business continuity solutions in place?
Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity – 60 minutes
Presenter ~ John May
John has been working in Information Technology for over 18 years and has experience in environments ranging in size from a single server and a few desktops up to several hundred servers and thousands of desktops around the world. He focuses on developing business process focused IT environments with an emphasis on security and standards-based systems. This has allowed the companies he works with to look at IT as a catalyst for process improvement and value rather than a cost center. With an educational background in teaching, he also enjoys helping to demystify computers for people, and assists companies in getting the most value for their investment by showing employees how to best utilize the tools they have available.
When not at work, John has a wife and two sons that he enjoys spending time with. When it’s warmer out, he also enjoys attending the occasional Brewer game (though he’s a Cardinals fan, but no one’s perfect!), and getting out on the road on his motorcycle.”
