Assignment 1.1

The company I have chosen for this assignment is called Bitweb Solutions. Bitweb Solutions is a fictitious American company that deals with the provisions of products and services that are IT related. The company is located in Manhattan and sits in an 1800 square feet building in the northern part. The company provides solutions such as web hosting and maintenance, software development, hardware maintenance and other support services that a company will generally require. Some of the company’s strong points include parts where they serve large companies in installing proper software for the operations of different company systems (Luckey, 2009). Their encryption ability and capacity has been lauded by numerous companies and individuals that they have worked with. One of the advantages of ensuring that their business is always running is in the way that they have the different approaches to their business. For instance, it is important to mention that they provide follow up services and maintenance to ensure that disaster recovery processes are working.

The minimum services that must be maintained when a disaster hits the company is to ensure that the emergency restoration partner is contacted. In such a manner, it is important to ensure that everything is working according to plan. There are incidences where there are different variations of what services the company offers (Negash, 2008). For Bitweb solutions, it will be important to ensure that the safety records are restored. To secure safety record, the prequalified recovery assistant will help in the recovery of the records that the company has. All the important contacts, including those of the personnel will be undertaken. There are references that a business will always rely on. For the disaster recovery process, it is important to ensure that everything works according to plan.

2.2 Facilities Coordinator

Facilities coordinators are some of the best individuals to spearhead any disaster recovery mechanisms. For instance, it is important to ensure that there is a way in which the individual understands the inner workings of the company and all its system. The first characteristic of a facilities coordinator is that they should have strong problem solving skills. When the individual is properly prepared in training and maintenance of systems, they will be in a better position to have a way in which they will bring back the company back in the shortest time possible. Secondly, the facilities coordinator should have strong multi-tasking skills in a fast paced environment. After a disaster, it is always important to have the best person to drive the organization forward. For a company to go forward, it should be mentioned that the person should be a multitasker. A multi tasker should ensure that they have all the necessary equipment to ensure that all disaster recovery efforts are run in an efficient manner. According to Marks & CERP CEM (2005), it is important to mention the various ways in which different people are able to cope with the different conditions that they have to fulfill such as ensuring the security of the system is up and working.

Secondly, it is also important to consider the very ways in which the facilities coordinator utilizes time as a natural resource. Any facilities coordinator must properly evaluate their time to ensure that the objectives the company has set to recover must be met. In some instances, it is important to ensure that every person has the ability to carry out their activities within the recommended periods of time. If the system has to be restored, the facilities coordinator must work within the provided times to ensure that everything works out. Failure in doing so may result into additional losses that the company may not have foreseen.
