Why Read This
This report outlines Forrester's solution to help IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders develop their road map of business technology (BT) resiliency tools using Forrester's TechRadar™ methodology. Running always-on, always-available IT services has long been a pipe dream for I&O professionals. To realize this dream, companies must first define the recovery and availability requirements for all application tiers and select the appropriate technologies to support the needs of those tiers. But with a complex and ever-changing ecosystem of technologies and vendors, technology selection is a major hurdle for achieving desired results. This report maps the key technologies that I&O professionals use to support their continuity objectives and aims to shed light on the current value and future evolution of these technologies. I&O professionals can use this TechRadar to select the technologies that best suit their individual needs as well as plan future investments.
