Avalution Adds Automatic Business Continuity Metrics to Catalyst Business Continuity Software

Cleveland, OH – March 30, 2014

Avalution Consulting – a leading provider of business continuity consulting and software solutions – announced today the release of a new feature for the Catalyst business continuity software suite, Catalyst Insights.

Catalyst Insights provides automatic business continuity metrics that enable business continuity and IT disaster recovery program managers to quickly identify and address preparedness gaps and report on their organization’s true level of preparedness like never before.

Forget simply reporting on the number of BIAs completed or how many plans were updated! With Catalyst Insights, business continuity and disaster recovery program managers can:

  • View granular business continuity dashboards, ratings, relationships, and dependencies for each element of the planning lifecycle by department, location, application, IT infrastructure, products and services, or the program as a whole;
  • Examine individual elements of the organization to understand upstream and downstream dependencies, identify and address gaps, and report on their current level of preparedness;
  • Visually map directional relationship dependencies for individual departments, locations, applications, IT infrastructure, products and services, or across the entire organization;
  • And, so much more!

“We’re excited to launch Catalyst Insights because it provides automatic business continuity metrics that will revolutionize the way a business continuity program manager views and reports on the resiliency of their organization.” explains Robert Giffin, Director, Avalution Consulting. “No additional work is required from the program manager to gain value from this feature. Insights utilizes the information entered into Catalyst during the business impact analysis, plan development process, and so on, to develop and display granular dashboards and preparedness rankings for individual elements of the program and the program as a whole.”

Catalyst – available in Basic, Pro, and Enterprise versions – makes business continuity and IT disaster recovery planning easy and repeatable for every organization, regardless of size, industry, or geography. In addition to the new feature discussed above, Catalyst addresses policy and procedure development, business impact analysis, risk assessment, plan development (business and IT), exercising, live incident management, emergency notification (Bullhorn), and general program management.

Catalyst is an all-in-one business continuity software suite that is powerful, affordable, and, most importantly, will produce results.
