Business Agility (BA) is all about access, and it can be achieved by leveraging collaborative technology to enable organizational flexibility.
This means that employees no longer need to be “handcuffed” to a physical office, desktop, or on-premises application. Adopting policies and management methods that promote flexibility is a competitive advantage in today’s hybrid working world.

Backing up your data is the first step — but can you also quickly restore the files and IT structure to a functioning state to minimize downtime and the impact of a disruption?
Here are three ways a recovery plan can enhance business agility:
