Preparation and Risk Mitigation

Infrastructure Review
Enabling will review your computers and network infrastructure, to assess the best platform on which your business systems will reside.

Key considerations:

  • Suitability of existing hardware and network
  • Physical installation of the software; whether this is to occur at the customer offices, or whether the customer would like to investigate a privately hosted installation at Enabling’s data center
  • Remote access; the provision of secure access to the centralised server

On assessing our recommendations, the customer may then choose to engage in Enabling’s services to assist in implementing any potential changes to their existing network infrastructure environment.

Change Management Planning
Change Management relates to the way in which we utilise standard methods and procedures to efficiently and promptly handle all changes to controlled IT infrastructure, in order to minimise the number and impact of any related incidents upon service.

Changes in IT infrastructure may arise reactively in response to problems or externally imposed requirements, e.g. legislative changes, or proactively from seeking imposed efficiency and effectiveness or to enable or reflect business initiatives, or from programs, projects or service improvement initiatives.

Change Management can ensure standardised methods, processes and procedures are used for all changes, facilitate efficient and prompt handling of all changes, and maintain the proper balance between the need for change and the potential detrimental impact of changes.

Disaster recovery planning & prevention (DRP) Analysis and Assessment
Disaster recovery planning and prevention (DRP) techniques are paramount in the provision of high-availability systems.  Enabling is able to provide a skilled assessment of customer DRP systems and procedures using our three tiered DRP methodology;

  1. Data: Backup and Restore
  2. Single Point of Failure: Localised interruption
  3. Major Business Interruption: Cold / Warm / Hot Site

As part of our service we identify potential areas of ‘system failure’ and through consultation with customer staff and management, attempt to assess the risks associated with system downtime.  We can also perform a health check on your current system and data backup device(s).

Enabling’s approach to DRP analysis is to provide our customers with appropriate guidance on the implementation of a simple, reliable and flexible disaster recovery solution to mitigate system downtime.  From our experience disaster recovery and prevention (DRP) solutions are often ignored, or at best poorly executed, with the resulting data losses and exposure never fully determined until a system downtime event occurs.
