Enterprise servers play a mission-critical role in modern computing environments, especially from a business continuity perspective. Several models of IT capability have been introduced over the last two decades. Enhancing Business Continuity and IT Capability: System Administration and Server Operating Platforms proposes a new model of IT capability. It presents a framework that establishes the relationship between downtime on one side and business continuity and IT capability on the other side, as well as how system administration and modern server operating platforms can help in improving business continuity and IT capability. This book begins by defining business continuity and IT capability and their importance in modern business, as well as by giving an overview of business continuity, disaster recovery planning, contingency planning, and business continuity maturity models. It then explores modern server environments and the role of system administration in ensuring higher levels of system availability, system scalability, and business continuity. Techniques for enhancing availability and business continuity also include Business impact analysis Assessing the downtime impact Designing an optimal business continuity solution IT auditing as a process of gathering data and evidence to evaluate whether the company’s information systems infrastructure is efficient and effective and whether it meets business goals The book concludes with frameworks and guidelines on how to measure and assess IT capability and how IT capability affects a firm’s performances. Cases and white papers describe real-world scenarios illustrating the concepts and techniques presented in the book.

Epidemic Risk Reduction: A Civil Protection Approach focuses on disaster risk reduction (DRR) relative to epidemic outbreak and the concept of civil protection and public safety. First and foremost, the primary role of public officials and agencies—including police, military, public health, and emergency management and response professionals—must be the safety and security the citizens. The book provides practical solutions and policies that can be enacted and instituted to protect human life and health as well as property and environment in the scope of human survival, providing essential services, and providing for peoples’ basic needs. The author examines epidemics as disasters, similar to natural hazards or other large-scale events that require planning, preparedness, mitigation, and response. The approach is unique in looking at tools for risk assessment and strategic planning formulated around civil protection measures as a means to reduce and mitigate risk. Often, preparedness and response planning is siloed with an epidemiological and medical response at the forefront. While absolutely important and essential, doing so—in conjunction with coordinated government efforts to provide necessary supplies, security, and logistics—is equally critical to meet the public’s needs and provide a coordinated response. Key Features: Examines the phenomenon of epidemics and hazards, explaining that they are often multi-hazard Provides public leaders with various considerations to meet the challenge of managing the complexity of various threat vectors Details universal terms and definitions—e.g., disaster, risk, and epidemic—using diagrams, illustrations, and analogies to clearly explain critical concepts Presents epidemic risk reduction strategies—based on the lead role that disaster, emergency management, and state/civil authorities need to play—focusing primarily on individual health and security Epidemic Risk Reduction: A Civil Protection Approach establishes a common language which will help in overcoming barriers for more coordinated efforts focused on epidemic management and operational response. While drawing on current research, and based on theoretical knowledge, the book also provides practical examples from around the world that look at real-world response efforts. This includes recommendations on how politicians, crisis response personnel, emergency planners, and public administrators and health professionals can better plan and prepare for future epidemics.

In the current business environment, many companies consciously or subconsciously practice a culture of inherent technical isolation (ITI). ITI exists when businesses and IT leaders in particular consistently provide preferential treatment to team members in their organizations on the basis of technical versus nontechnical competency. This book is written to not only draw attention to the ITI culture but to also promote an inclusive management practice that would eventually make the culture extinct. Essentially, the book seeks to promote a new business and technology management culture void of inherent technical isolation practices.
