FREMONT, CA:Artificial Intelligence (AI) has undoubtedly become a vital part of most business operations today. It has become a boon for businesses as AI has made work easier in many areas of business, from customer service to warehousing. But there are several other applications where AI can be a savior of enterprises. Business continuity is one area that is being revitalized with the advent of AI. Here is how.
•Timely IT Service Management
With the help of AI-based disaster recovery systems, enterprises can schedule their IT service management regimes. This boosts business continuity by preventing system failures and reducing the chances of human error. AI can also be used to test disaster scenarios and identify weak links that might be a threat to business continuity. It can help disaster managers have a complete view of how the IT infrastructure is functioning post-disaster.

This proactive recovery can save a lot of time. By automating the recovery process using AI, enterprises can respond much more proactively to potential threats, which will not be possible with manual recovery systems.

AI can be used in the plan development stage of the disaster recovery system. IT teams can benefit a lot form integrating AI with plan development. AI systems can suggest the best methods from their database or from the internet that can help the disaster recovery team make better decisions for business continuity. AI systems can sift through relevant information, and it makes disaster recovery planning and development processes much more efficient.
•Intuitive Responses to Disaster
Depending on the severity of disaster that has struck the business, the actions enterprises need to take may vary. An AI-based system for business continuity can determine the actions to be taken by analyzing the situation automatically. AI can be employed to determine the gravity of the situation and choose an appropriate response that would best fulfill the need of the hour.
In the world where downtime can seriously harm business performance, enterprises cannot afford to have less-than-perfect recovery strategies. With AI, firms can take their business continuity plan to the next level.
