How to Sell “Disaster Recovery” to Senior Management

Is your C Suite hesitating before adopting DR?

It isn’t always easy getting senior execs to buy into a new program or solution. This can be especially true for disaster recovery. Why? Usually because they don’t understand how much downtime can affect your business bottom line. As a Senior Analyst at Forrester Research explained “Organizations are willing to accept far more risk than I would have ever thought possible.”

  • What word could be giving you trouble, and how to take it out of your discussions
  • How to make sure management understands the ROI for DRaaS
  • Why “risk mitigation” should be a part of your conversations
