disaster recoveryThe Client

The client is one of the most reputed and leading insurers in the world with a strong presence in over 64 different countries across the world. The client is also a member of a business conglomerate whose primary business is financial and accounting services.

The Requirements

In a business that is defined by the very interaction that happens between a business and its customers, outages can cause a lot of damage and pose serious threat to the very existence of the business. The downtime can prove to be fatal and the business was not in a liberty to afford such outages.

In order to ensure the continuity of the business, the client was in search of a reliable, established and professional local service provider with the required infrastructure to support the client in times of outages.

Though the client had a DR facility in the US that they continued to use, the client was in full aware of the expense involved in moving the workforce to the US from India in the event of an outage in its captive centre in India and that it is not viable in long-term. As a result, the company carried out extensive research to identify a local vendor from Bangalore who can act as a DR Service provider and provide business continuity to its already successful captive center in Bangalore, India.

The decision was a strategic one, as selecting a different city for its expansion would attract costs that would have been unnecessary.

The Challenges

In meeting the requirements of the client, two challenges were identified;

  • To provide all the disaster recovery services required by the client as it was needed to support the large number of global customers of the client from different part of the world.
  • To have the entire necessary technological infrastructure, human resource and processes and systems in place to effortlessly transit all the routine activities of the offshore captive center of the client with least possible interruption to the daily operations of the same without compromising the high standards of service deliverance.
