Clay Jackson presents on IT Resiliency - How to design and Leverage for Competitive Advantage.

The current economic climate consists of a highly competitive, 24/7 world of customer demand which affects delivery and global supply chains. If your organization cannot deliver to its customers, the customers can easily find new vendors. This dependence on technology has increased the business risks related to even minimal service interruptions. In this session, attendees will learn the basic framework to quantify operational risk, evaluate resiliency scenarios, identify the best solutions, and justify the investment needed.

Clay Jackson has been in the IT field since 1972; has a Masters in Software Engineering from Seattle University and is a CISM.  Prior to joining Dell Software in 2012, he was a Database Administrator and DBA Manager for Starbucks, Washington Mutual and Darigold.    At Washington Mutual, he was the Bank Officer responsible for Enterprise Database Disaster Planning and Recovery, a member of the Bank’s Business Continuity Team and  worked through two bank-wide “recovery events” and several smaller incidents.  In addition, Clay worked as a volunteer in Disaster Preparedness and Recovery for the City of Sammamish and Eastside Fire and Rescue in Washington State, and participated in State and FEMA sponsored Disaster Recovery exercises.
