Business resilience is an emerging topic with significant repercussions for resellers, it brings together topics such as governance risk and compliance (GRC), enterprise risk management (ERM), business continuity planning, agility, and others. It is a response to the escalation of the speed of business, increasing integration of digital technologies, and a perception that the threat environment is becoming riskier as natural disasters follow financial malaise. Resilience is the ability to survive a crisis and recover stronger. It is embedded in IT, and is greatly aided by developing virtualisation and cloud environments. For resellers, it represents a new range of possibilities, and potential to form stronger partnerships with clients and vendors.
