What Creative Computing Enterprises can do for you...

The professionals at Creative Computing Enterprises can evaluate, educate and provide clear, concise solutions to establish and maintain robust confidence in the safety, security and recoverability of your business.

Having a documented Disaster Recovery Plan is the initial step to ensuring the continuity of your business. A Disaster Recovery Plan is a living document that must be continually maintained and exercised. Your plan is forever changing and evolving, as is your business. In creating a Disaster Recovery Plan, CCE will work with you and your business to define the resources, actions, data, hardware and procedures required to manage the recovery and continuity of your business. This plan of action will give your business the ability to respond to an emergency in a coordinated, timely, and effective manner.

CCE services extend beyond plan creation. Once a plan for your business is established the professionals at CCE can manage your disaster recovery plan with annual audits. We also offer management services for Disaster Recovery Testing.
These exercises evaluate the effectiveness of a plan, educate and identify capabilities. We will simulate a disaster, placing the disaster recovery plan into action. CCE has the capability of executing your recovery strategy at their drillsite*.
