Boeing Syndrome


The ultimate disaster scenario for contingency planning purposes. The name, allegedly, comes from a conference in which IT specialists, administrators, planners, etc were asked first to imagine that a Boeing 747 Jumbo fell out of the air onto their computer centre (with the resulting complete loss of systems) and then asked to prepare a contingency/disaster recovery plan to keep their organisation going in such circumstances. A very useful exercise - even for small companies, who often do not realise just how important their computer systems are to their continued existence as a viable business.
