Join iland and Zerto to discuss business continuity planning and:
- How you can be confident in your DR plan – and avoid downtime
- What factors should impact selection of a DR-as-a-Service partner
- How you can secure your systems during the disaster
- And how your team can be prepared for IT bumps
"Disaster Recovery" conjures images of superstorms, earthquakes and “Acts of God." But, dozens of mundane things can make IT go bump in the day or night. In a recent Zerto survey, 76% of customers had an outage in the past year and only 13% of those were natural disasters. The rest were power failures, hardware failures, and user errors and other nefarious scenarios. Gartner’s recent 2015 Business Continuity Management survey echoed these figures.
We’re all horrified when news of a hack, a bug, or an IT ransom makes the headlines. But, preparation can help prevent outages – and iland and Zerto lead the pack in DR-as-a-Service.
B2B buying is becoming increasingly complex. The number of influencers, decision makers and stakeholders involved in the process is one driver of this. It’s further compounded by today’s multiplicity of marketing communications channels.
How can you master these challenges to deliver real and continuous pipeline for your products and solutions?

This is ‘smarter demand generation’. It’s an approach that integrates data, technology, people and tactics. It leverages insight to improve targeting and messaging, and it’s optimised to deliver real, measurable impact to your pipeline.

•Encompass both digital and human interactions, aligning demand generation to the way buyers educate themselves, learn about solutions and ultimately select their vendors
•Understand the pitfalls to avoid
•Plan the steps needed to improve your own marketing and sales for smarter demand generation
