MARLBORO, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 17, 2012) - Versatile Communications, Inc., an accomplished consulting company helping IT organizations solve business problems through technology integration, today announces their newest educational symposium focusing on disaster preparedness and business continuity. The first symposium is jointly sponsored by several Versatile partners including Hewlett-Packard, CradlePoint, ShoreTel, APC by Schneider Electric, and VMware. It will take place at Hilton Garden Inn Tampa in Tampa on September 20, 2012.
Formulating a working disaster recovery strategy requires considerable planning. A catastrophic event can not only cause power outages in the immediate area, but also the surrounding area. Services from the on-premise infrastructure as well as telecommunication providers' equipment can be interrupted. Power, internet connectivity, land-line and mobile-communication networks can remain unavailable for an extended period after the disaster. Versatile's Disaster Preparedness and Business Continuity symposium lends a forum for their manufacturer partners to discuss best practices from the stand point of getting key infrastructural areas back up and running as quickly as possible after an interruption occurs.
"According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, forty percent of businesses do not reopen after a disaster. Yet a recent poll showed almost three-quarters of small to medium businesses -- the largest segment of business and the economy -- currently do not have an emergency contingency plan in place," says John Barker, CEO and Co-founder, Versatile Communications. "The goal of our symposium is to disseminate infrastructure disaster preparedness information so organizations are aware of the different aspects of the infrastructure that should be a part of their overall corporate disaster recovery plan."
