    Having a database backup and restore plan is essential to protect your business from ERP failure. A number of issues could occur and result in corrupted data. As businesses continuously input more data into their systems, the chance of failure and service disruptions raises considerably. Include a consistent recovery point for database objects and document backup and recovery strategies to make this process as smooth as possible.
