Addressing Disruption and Losses: A Case Study

Allysa Ashley M. Palaming


One of the largest fast food companies, with more than $1 billion in annual sales, had a power crisis in its corporate headquarter. A power transformer exploded, leaving the entire office complex, including the corporate data center, without power. The data center's backup power system immediately took over and kept critical parts of the data center operational. However, it's not enough to power all systems so the system supporting sales for all Australian agents, dealers and distributors had to be turned off.
