The challenge

Traditional business continuity planning, crisis management and incident response are usually siloed within an organization as they tend to support different business functions and priorities. Yet all are crucial risk management considerations.

It’s a given that modernizing business continuity planning, incident response and crisis management requires digital platforms. Each solution is vital to your business’s ability to prepare for, respond to and manage disaster scenarios. But not all solutions work together or deliver the capabilities you need.

Every new SaaS platform you add to your tech stack contributes to the dreaded ‘tech bloat’ — the condition of having and paying for more services than you can manage, or need. This table maps common solutions and key capabilities, and how ShadowHQ stacks up against them.
