How IMT, BC and DR Fit



Here’s how the BC/DR Methodology views the relationship between Incident Management, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery:

Slide9 l.jpg

BC/DR Assessment



  • Identifies and ranks threats to the location(s) including:

    • Natural Hazards

    • Site Vulnerabilities

    • Security Threats

    • Employee Safety

    • Terrorism

    • Current Mitigation

    • Employee Well-Being

When completed, the BC/DR Assessment tells you

“What’s at Risk.”

Slide13 l.jpg

B/AVA (Business & Application Value Analysis)



  • BVA: Grades impacts to Business Processes or Functions in terms of:

  • Daily, Weekly & Monthly

  • Financial

  • Customer Perception

  • Brand

  • Regulatory

  • Then assigns Criticality Tier based on RPO/RTOs.

Slide14 l.jpg

B/AVA (Business & Application Value Analysis)(continued)



AVA: Determines which n-Tiered Applications support which Processes or Functions, then each Application inherits highest Criticality Tier from supported Process or Function.

When the B/AVA is complete, you’ll know “What it’s Worth.”

Slide17 l.jpg

Process & Technology Mapping



  • Process Mapping:

  • Visio drawings showing workflow for each Process or Function.

    • One for daily production workflow

    • One for BC workflow

Slide18 l.jpg

Process & Technology Mapping (continued)



  • Technology Mapping:

  • Visio drawings showing all Configuration Items (CIs) required for all processes in a Criticality Tier.

  • Excel matrices of all specs & hosted applications for each CI used in a Tier.

    • One each for daily production environments

    • One each for DR environments

Once Technology & Process Mapping is completed, you’ll know “Where it Lives.”

Slide21 l.jpg

Recovery & Continuity Tactics



  • Based on Production and Recovery Target, we will design and assist with negotiating costs for varied recovery solutions, including:

  • Internal

  • Collocation

  • Hot-Site

  • 2nd Data Center

With Backup & Recovery Tactics Design complete, you’ll know “How You’ll Recover.”

Slide25 l.jpg

BC/DR Planning



We will develop and deliver Incident Management Team (IMT), Business Continuity (BC), and Disaster Recovery (DR) Plans. Each Plan details, in simple language that’s easy to understand during an Event.

Once the BC/DR Planning phase is complete, you’ll know

“Who’s Responsible.”

Plan types l.jpg
Plan Types

BC/DR Plans cover three plan types, each with a specific focus and objective:

Slide31 l.jpg


Competitive Landscape

  • There are three kinds of competition:

    • In larger firms, you will run into IBM and SunGard, and soon HP with the EDS acquisition

      • These firms have but one goal – get the customer on the hook for a 5 year “hot-site” hosting contract.

Slide32 l.jpg


Competitive Landscape

  • There are three kinds of competition:

    • There are always “do it yourself” plans one can buy on the Internet

    • Do nothing approach (where most companies are today)

Slide33 l.jpg


How The IMSN Is Involved

  • IMSN is now set up to smooth both the pre-sales and delivery of this service offering to your customers.

  • IMSN is the conduit between these two parties:

    • Pre-sales and delivery resources

    • You and your customers on the other end

Slide34 l.jpg


How The IMSN Is Involved

IMSN provides protections from competition & margin erosion,plus the simplicity of invoicing to your Ingram Micro account.

Slide35 l.jpg


Target End Clients

  • Any firm with an annual IT budget of $10 million is definitely spending money on BCDR

  • Any firm with smaller budgets that is highly regulated needs BCDR (financial, healthcare, publicly traded)

  • All companies need some level of recovery capability and smaller project sizes are common between $20k to $75k

Slide36 l.jpg


On-boarding Steps

  • All the Solution Provider needs to do is get an initial appointment for an online sales call.

  • From there, sample deliverables are shared and discussed, scoping questions are asked and a proposal/SOW is generated and turned around within 24 hours.

  • The solution provider is expected to follow up with the prospect and drive the sales cycle, but any technical or presales questions are handled by a dedicated staff of experts.

Slide37 l.jpg


On-boarding Steps

  • Once a SOW is executed, the delivery team handles the entire engagement, including project management.

  • The solution provider is invoiced by phase from Ingram Micro according to the schedule determined in the SOW and usually invoices its client according to the same schedule with their own markup.

Slide38 l.jpg


How You Make Money Selling BCDR

  • All BCDR Services are priced with 20% margin that is protected from competition

  • Services can range from as low as $5,000 to $150,000

  • During the process of the engagement, recovery solutions are developed for large infrastructure projects that are approved by senior executive management

    • Recovery solutions usually include:

      • Servers, Virtualization, Storage, Replication, Networking, WAN acceleration appliances and professional services

Slide39 l.jpg


Solution Provider Benefits

  • You will have detailed insight into every business process, its value to the business executives and every application and infrastructure component in order of its priority to the business.

Slide40 l.jpg


Solution Provider Benefits

  • You will be able to sit at the table as the executives decide the tiers and value of their business processes – getting you in front of the top decision makers.

  • In short you will understand their business and they will know who you are - and realize that you understand their business

If yes, when was it last updated?
