Item description for Surviving the next Database Disaster by T. Test Jeffrey...
Access to database information within an organization is critical to the survival of the organization. With the expansion of Business to Business (B2B) and Customer to Business (C2B) applications the access to data has become critical. The loss of regional power, political and public unrest, natural disasters and an unfortunate mistake by a construction worker digging through a phone cable can drive modern data reliant businesses and their business partners into bankrutcy. Any organization that uses information stored in databases or has relationships with businesses that use databases are at risk. The loss of the database and the information needed to manage minute to minute operations of just in time management are at risk. ComAir's loss of access to the aircrew database over the Chrismas of 2004 grounded 1160 flights and stranded over 30,000 passengers across the U.S. and Bahamas. ComAir was influential in driving Delta Airlines into bankrutcy in under a year. Any organization or business that relies on electronic databases are at risk. Every CEO, CIO, CFO or anybody with aspirations to become the next organizational leader needs to read this book.
