Discovering Business Continuity & Disaster Recovering
„Failing to plan is planning to fail!"
The goal is to strengthen the company and especially the employees even in major and unexpected crises and to make them more resilient to crises. In crises, decisions and actions are required which are different from the business, but which can give you a clear lead in overcoming the crisis and decide whether your company will firstly go through a crisis strengthened or weakened and secondly come out of it strengthened or weakened.
The better a company's team is prepared for a crisis, the greater the chance that the company will emerge from a crisis more quickly and remain capable of action in the crisis.
Implementation of Business Continuity for the company
- What are your main, best-selling products
- How long can the crisis last
- Go through your risk management step by step
Business Continuity for your employees – Your company lives from your employees and your team makes the difference whether your company is successful or not. Does your team enjoy their work or do they not enjoy their work and come to work with "stomach ache" - that makes the difference between success and failure

Keep your KVM System in a great shape
A network is always as good as its weakest link. This also applies to KVM networks and redundant is not necessarily redundant.
With FLEXline and media4Kconnect redundant systems are possible. But the question must always be asked. What is the "single point of failure"?
Is it necessary that the second port on the Extender immediately takes over the power supply, or is the switch to be supplied redundantly, or is a complete redundant system required.
A variant of redundancy would also be an external control room in a safe area, where work could continue immediately after a fire or flooding from outside.
Ideally, a complete control room could be installed redundantly for safety-critical applications.
Remote access via Gateway2go
Remote access to the entire KVM network. For this purpose, the KVM network is accessed from outside via VPN and through Gateway2go the user can connect to all local units in the network and operate the associated PCs as with a remote extender.
For example if only home office is possible, the complete system can be operated from outside the company as well as from inside.
It is crisis, so don`t panic
Where do crises in the brain arise? How are energy reserves mobilised? How is fear released? It is crisis - what happens next?
"A crisis is when the old dies and the new cannot be born" (Antonio Gramsci)
The main question is always "How can you come out of a crisis stronger than before and which measures and concepts are helpful?
Every crisis triggers fear and insecurity, because we feel that we have no way out and are powerless.
People need tasks that are manageable and these experiences let us grow, even if it is exhausting. Successful coping also strengthens the feeling of self-efficacy
Fear is solved through solutions
In crises, the conditions that cause fear cannot be changed, but there is the possibility to adapt oneself and one's own needs to the new circumstances. This means that fear-triggering discrepancies between one's own expectations and one's own competencies and the real world no longer occur. That would be a good adaptation strategy.
It is crisis and through competent management it continues
When the sea is stormy, you need a great team on board and the captain, who navigates the ship through the stormy sea with the helm in his hand. What do managers need to navigate their team through the crisis
