Lost data. Just say the phrase and thoughts of hours, days, even years of invaluable work just vanishing are conjured up. It's enough to want to scream: GET ME SOME BACKUP!

Think "disaster" and you envision images of something horrific and destructive; Mother Nature (or even mankind) at their worst. But sometimes, it doesn't take an act of God to take down a system and stop business cold. Smaller leaks can sink the system ship just as quickly.

If you haven't devised a plan yet (or you're not sure how fail safe yours is), Gregg Larkin shares a high-level view of an actual DRP design and the testing that goes with it.

Take advantage of Hartley's 20 years implementing JD Edwards. Are your users complaining how long batch jobs or inquiries take to run or the IT/CNC staff complaining how long back-ups take or how long it takes to copy one environment to another? The central issue is the poor data housekeeping at most sites and hence uncontrolled growth in data files. Hartley presents reality-based advice on how to get control of your data.
