MDS Saudi Arabia hosts a seminar on Business Continuity

MidEast Data Systems Saudi Arabia, one of the major IT players in the Kingdom, and part of Mohammed M Al Rumaih (MMR) Co., recently hosted a seminar to discuss the drivers and components that ensure Business Continuity at the various levels within an organization.

Jan 29th, 2003- Riyadh, KSA - A number of highly reputed companies were invited to discuss the wide number of elements and building blocks that constitute Business Continuity and to present the solutions they can provide to help in reaching its required objectives. The seminar was held at Riyadh Intercontinental hotel and was attended by more than 40 delegates from various industries and market segments including telecoms, banking, military and healthcare.

A number of leading IT and business solutions providers participated in the presentations, among them: EMC, the number one company in storage solutions, whose speaker presented an overview on disaster recovery, its planning, elements and value. Next on the list was Stratus, the company with more than twenty years expertise in providing continuous computing platforms, who presented a look into fault tolerance technology: how to eliminate the downtime. And the final topic was: Components of backup solutions and their justification, by Legato and Advanced Digital Incorporation, who combined represent one of the world leaders in Backup Tape Drive solutions.

The speakers identified the need for Business Continuity as stemming from: critical information growth, enhancing recovery times, growing downtime cost, increased data value, and long term continuance vs. short term survival. The components of Business Continuity were categorized under:
• Process: documentation and contingency plans
• People: staff availability
• Infrastructure: systems and data

Commenting on the seminar, Mr. Ibrahim El-Khoury, General Manager (Computer & Communication) said, ”As organizations are increasingly developing strategies and plans to ensure continuous operation of their business, MMR/MDS is uniquely positioned to help Saudi companies achieve Business Continuity.
