While interviewing 147 of our client companies, we gathered plenty of interesting statistics. One thing that became pretty obvious right away: the hope-for-the-best-and-prepare-for-the-worst strategy is not something most companies practice these days.

We’ve talked about their disaster recovery plans for Microsoft Project Online, their action plan, and their planned response to possible data loss. Astonishingly, very few companies have a backup plan, and even fewer back up their data more or less regularly.

We analyzed all the information and prepared some infographics for the backup state.


Disaster Recovery Solution Adoption

While the majority of the companies surveyed do have a disaster recovery solution in place, only 5% have a solution or practices for Project Online backup in place. This means that should data loss include their Project Online data; it’ll have a significant negative impact.

Cost of Downtime

We might assume that when project data is lost, it results in financial and productivity losses for the organization. But how much does the data loss cost to a company?

• Cost to build new schedule: 35% – $2,000 per case
• Cost to restore SharePoint Content: 45% – from $2,000 per case
• Lost productivity: 72% – $2,000 per day


Disaster Recovery Planning and Testing

With human error still the top cause of downtime, statistics show that 22% of companies with a documented disaster recovery plan for Microsoft Project Online test it only once a year. Ten percent test it once a quarter, and 6% once a month.

With all the alarming downtime statistics, the need for change is accentuated. 60% of organizations that have experienced data loss report planning to prepare and deploy data recovery solutions and events.
