    Supplier failure

    Has anybody got any disaster recovery or business continuity plans in place that take supplier failure in to consideration- such as the supplier going out of business?

    yes, always have a NAS or SAN to back up too just in case!

    *edit*

    they should have your backups still even if they have gone out of business so they should be able to send it too you as it is yours

    Oh no RM has gone out of business - what a disaster!

    *returns to real point*

    In what manner would you be looking at the software company going out of business?
    Lets say SIMS goes out of buisness and that means no more security/software updates - is that such a big problem?

    I would say something like a hosted solution (e.g. Live@Edu) suddenly being turned off would cause some problems but as far as software that is hosted on site I don't see that the company that supplied it to you going out of work would have any impact on your DR plan.

    I was refering to administrators looking to retrieve all assets including the application source code as they own the IPR's!!

    Escrow could be a good thought at this stage?
