BUDD LAKE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Virtual Corporation today announced that the Department of Veteran Affairs has selected its Sustainable Planner® software program to manage and maintain over 100 disaster recovery and contingency plans. The program will support Business Continuity in within the Region 2 and 3 Interim Data Centers.
According to Executive Vice President Margaret Langsett, “Virtual is proud of our history supporting the Department of Defense and our nation’s private healthcare systems. We are honored to have this opportunity to serve the extraordinary mission of the Veterans Administration.”
Virtual Corporation provides IT disaster recovery and business continuity (COOP) software products and consulting services. Virtual Corporation’s Sustainable Planner® (SP) software was designed for organizations to empower organizational managers to contribute data and documents to create their own unique functional plans. SP is so simple to use that a customizable single page user guide is provided.
SP comes with a variety of predefined “planning models” to jump-start the VA’s use of the tool. These planning models can easily be configured to exactly match the VA’s requirements for functional, infrastructure, and application recovery planning, data center crisis management, event or exercise management, risk assessment and a variety of other COOP (BC for IT) planning applications.
Most competing business continuity software is complex, requiring a steep learning curve, and quickly becomes outdated. Sustainable Planner, however, is designed to be modified, without programming, to exactly fit an organization’s needs. It is adaptive and can be reconfigured as your IT disaster recovery or COOP program matures.
“The Department of Veterans Affairs needed a tool that was not only flexible and powerful, but one that the user community is comfortable with,” said Scott Ream, President of Virtual Corporation, “and the SP software can be modified without programmer support to suit the users and operations processes, instead of having to make changes to the organization to fit the tool.”
