A county government retained CAS Severn in 2008 to construct an IT recovery plan that would allow the formation of a plan for storing, backing up and archiving applications, servers, and data to limit its risk in case of a disaster.
Using its proven methodology, the team at CAS Severn completed a commercial business application review, reviewed the IT infrastructure the county government already had, performed a gap analysis, and developed a high-level IT recovery strategy. Twenty departments and eleven sub-departments were included in the analysis.
The team at CAS Severn provided the county with a budget planning guide for fiscal year 2009, an outline of potential risks for commercial business units and possible mediation activities, a baseline cost model for the recovery center, and a recovery build-out model to be used for future IT direction.
