Chris McIntyre and Jay Weaver from the Bank of Utah will be presenting how they stay current on disaster recovery planning, and how they use disaster recovery planning to improve the end user’s experience each day.  Chris and Jay will demonstrate how they use their remote data center equipment for application testing, as well as how to they keep production data replicated and still make it available for application testing and validation.  Having all of the data from IBM i is great, but having a complete environment is essential.  It is all about the end user experience, and being able to quickly demonstrate it works.dilbert
