In 1985, when IT was an emerging career track and Steve Jobs was resigning from Apple, the British sent Katrina and the Waves across the big pond, walking on sunshine. Fast forward 20 years and we encountered a completely different Katrina and much bigger waves, leaving folks stranded on rooftops and walking on the Superdome. Who knew popular music could be so prescient?
Today, we have ten years behind us of examining the impact of the massive hurricane. Katrina was just the beginning. It was actually the waves that caused the most damage, after they breached the levies and compromised the flood control mechanisms and pumps. Homes and businesses were caught off-guard and reduced to rubble.
Disaster Recovery Planning
In the wake of a natural disaster or catastrophic political event, you don’t want to be the guy or gal playing shoulda, coulda, woulda.

And that’s where we can help.
