Tim Carmody, Chief Technology Officer, IPC - Solutions Review
The coronavirus pandemic made clear the need for disaster recovery plans and solutions for virtually every industry, but even before the pandemic, remote and mobile workforces were clearly the direction almost every industry was headed. This decentralization of the workforce increases the need for planning and preparation for a broad range of contingencies because even if a business interruption is localized geographically, it could still have ripple effects throughout the entire organization. Tim Carmody, Chief Technology Officer, IPC, discusses how, with respect to financial services specifically, IPC is seeing an important shift in mindset within the financial markets: traders and other industry participants know now they can reliably and resiliently thrive with a mobile workforce, albeit by smartly leveraging cloud computing so that if and when disaster does strike again, their business will be prepared.
