Platform as a Resource.
Historically, there has been resistance to adaptation of new technologies, platforms or automation and tendency to stick around with the old manual processes or the legacy systems.
During Crisis, organisations which rely on manual data or managing with semi automation like RPA ,excel files etc may not be able to make timely decision on response / recovery.
Crisis Management / Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery are Business Critical Functions in today's environment where Organisations have to deal multiple incidents at the same time .The Crisis gets even more complex when your resources are distributed, command and communication is stretched like the Work from home scenario, or a regional incident impacting multiple locations.
Impact of each Incident is different wherein multiple strategies and plans are required to be put in place .
This is easier said than done due to frequent/multiple changes in Business, changes in SME/Critical employees etc. As the size of the Crisis /BCM team is generally small ,recovery gets cumbersome and chances of dealing with inaccurate data is really high.
Though, in an ideal situation all Crisis Management or Business Continuity plans should be rehearsed and tested but in actual it is scaled down /conducted in TTE form or in worst case never tested. Some time when Incident impacts Organisations, Key personal/SME may not be available and the leaders present to deal with Incident has to swift mountain of information manually, analyse and communicate to the stakeholders which itself is an herculean task.
