Databarracks has announced the acquisition of Glasgow-based PlanB Consulting, seeking to boost its operational resilience and cyber continuity consulting practice. Databarracks, a specialist in technology and business resilience, recognizes PlanB as a highly reputable player in business continuity and resilience, bringing nearly two decades of industry leadership and expertise. With co-founders Charlie and Kim Maclean-Bristol at the helm, PlanB has garnered a reputation as a thought leader in business continuity consulting. The partnership promises to offer comprehensive services in Business Continuity, Crisis Management, and Cyber Resilience to clients. The acquisition comes at a time when the Operational Resilience market has seen traditional BC specialists absorbed into general IT services, leading to a fractured landscape with few end-to-end specialists. Mike Osborne, Chairman of Databarracks, highlights PlanB’s independence and specialized focus, which, combined with Databarracks’ services, creates a holistic offering in data protection, technology recovery, business continuity, and cyber resilience. Chris Butler, Resilience Director at Databarracks, emphasizes the increasing volatility in the business environment, reinforcing the importance of operational foresight and preparation in business survival and prosperity. Since 2003, Databarracks has been offering managed backup services and award-winning IT resilience and continuity services, supporting organizations in maximizing cloud benefits and data protection. With top-notch support by its engineers, Databarracks aims for the uninterrupted operation of its clients’ systems, advocating enterprise-class continuity, security, and resilience accessible to all.
