Vision Solutions Quantifies ROI in Business Continuity eBook

Newest Chapter of "Business Continuity Today" Provides IT Leaders With Valuable Leverage in the Ongoing ROI Debate

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2009) - Vision Solutions, a leading high availability and disaster recovery solutions provider for IBM Power Systems (NYSE: IBM), introduces a new chapter, BCROI: Measuring Returns on Your Business Continuity Investment, in its Business Continuity Today eBook. Chapter eight provides a comprehensive review of disaster recovery and high availability technologies and helps identify and quantify the real financial return on investment (ROI) for each.

"This new material offers practical, focused insights into how to save significant time and money through strategic IT technology decisions," says Edward Vesely, senior vice president of marketing and business development for Vision Solutions. "Business continuity is often viewed as an overhead expense or insurance policy -- in reality, any IT investment achieving continuous business operations through better availability will yield valuable and tangible financial returns, even if you never experience a disaster."

According to Vesely, companies can easily determine significant savings by calculating costs associated with application and system downtime, then comparing the data with the ROI a disaster recovery or high availability solution can deliver. "Vision's Availability ROI Tool helps justify a business continuity investment and can verify real cost savings if there is ever any financial debate," he says.

Published quarterly, Business Continuity Today reviews a wide range of IT-related business continuity issues and provides a clear and understandable business-case analysis of IT technologies and operational issues. To download a copy of this new eBook chapter and to browse previous chapters, visit www.businesscontinuitytoday.com. Each chapter is written for a broad audience, from C-level executives to IT and non-IT professionals, and focuses on one particular IT issue or a set of technologies. The eBook also explores broader business situations while providing practical and balanced options for getting the best results and return from each IT investment.
