Delta IT Disaster!
Posted August 11, 2016 by Ben Hicok
Angry customers, negative media coverage, frustrated employees, untold revenue lost, lingering anger from customers: that’s the status for Delta Airlines this week. Of course this is not news to anyone unless you have been living under a rock you have heard the numerous news reports detailing the Delta computer disaster. Whether caused by a minor power outage at Delta headquarters or an internal computer hiccup, the airline was forced to cancel over 500 flights. This caused a gridlock across America’s airports at the height of vacation season. You may not be running an international transportation corporation, but imagine what would happen to your clients if you had an unexpected IT failure. If you think something like this can’t happen to you; think again.
The problem that Delta airlines faced was not the power outage at their headquarters, it was an inadequate IT Disaster Recovery Plan.
