Business users who depend on analytics are not thinking about DR. IT needs to be proactive to understand when analytics evolve from "nice to have" to critical, before a disaster occurs. Failure to recognize the transformation of analytics data will catch the business off guard and cause tremendous damage to the organization in the event of a disaster.
- Evaluate use cases where analytics data becomes mission critical.
- Understand the typical progression of analytics programs.
- Build a case for providing additional DR support for critical analytic data sets.
