The third section of the marketing plan is GOALS. This is where you lay out exactly what you want to accomplish with your marketing efforts. Without goals you will never have a benchmark to compare to. If your marketing plan is a one year plan, how will you know if you were successful or not at the end of the year of marketing activities? Another critical element of the Goals section is to schedule evaluation points throughout the duration of your plan. Having these points predetermined will allow you to continually assess the effectiveness of your efforts.
IT Business Continuity. Business Continuity refers to an organization's ability to keep vital business operations running at or near normal capacities in the event of infrastructure failure. These failures can be caused by human errors, power failures, application errors and a host of others that impact the ability of the infrastructure to properly support the organization. When speaking of Business Continuity the majority of the infrastructure remains in place and functional which is in contrast to Disaster Recovery.
