Lies, damned lies, and statistics…
For many years, the IT industry has used the threat of going out of business as a way of compelling businesses to invest in backup and Disaster Recovery solutions. Essentially, there has been more than a little scaremongering about the risk of failing to back up data properly and putting appropriate plans in place for disaster recovery.
As an example consider the following statement:
- 80% of companies go out of business after experiencing a major data loss
To the minds of many, this seems overly dramatic. It does make an important point, however, supposing it was a myth built around a statistic that cannot be verified?
In fact, research has shown that it is simply not possible to identify or verify the original source of the data behind this claim…
But what is the truth?
