What affects your required RPO

  • The raw cost of data loss

    • What is the business impact of the loss in your environment?

    • For example, in the healthcare industry it could mean scrapping a very expensive medical device.

  • Re-processing/re-entry of data

    • Will you know what needs to be re-keyed?

    • Chance for lost orders and duplicate orders

  • Indirect costs

    • Loss of confidence by your customers

    • Potential loss of future business

    • Compensation

    • Impact on other businesses / people

    • Impact on things like financial reporting. Is the lost data material to operations affecting financial reporting?

Calculating the RPO Cost

  • Develop an understanding of the costs

    • Average value of a transaction.

    • Transaction volumes over time and by time of day.

    • Is there a manual data capture (hardcopy backup) system?

      • Cost of manual recovering data.

      • Impact of manual recovery. Will you ever catch up?

    • Transaction value depreciation

      • Does this happen?

      • Does the value ever become 0 or even negative?

    • Other costs specific to your environment or industry?

  • Service level agreements (SLAs), customer charters, contractual commitments and obligations.

    • These costs are above and beyond the cost of data loss and downtime!
