Same song, different verse

Assuming you rely on the flow of information to run your business, you want to make sure that the flow is uninterrupted. If the flow of information is your business, even more so.  So you have a backup system.

But what happens when the flow stops and the backup doesn’t kick in?

“OTC Exchange Freezes As Glitch Hits System,” Wall Street Journal, December 11, 2013 C4 http://on.wsj.com/18mgcCW  System out for 65 minutes in the middle of the trading day.  Second time in a month (the other one was five hours, so things are looking up).

So, you have a plan to preserve business continuity following a computer “glitch.” And you have backups. Is that enough?  What more can you do?  A fail-over system?
