The company's IS vice president, Glenn Wood, had left the building before the flood and expected to find nothing worse than some puddling around the building's doors when he returned the next morning.
Instead, he discovered that chairs, desks, PCs and file cabinets had been swept up in the tidal wave. "Four chairs from my office were washed out of the room, down the hall, through the computer room and into a programmer's office," Wood says. "We lost two disk drives at once, and I had to recover all my data," Wood says. "Twice." But Allison didn't suffer any serious business loss after Hugo. "We were really lucky, and we knew it," says Wood. Within a few months after Hugo, Wood initiated an evaluation of Allison's business needs. He assigned a staff member to coordinate the development of a recovery plan and met with him regularly for two years to work out the details. Before they could consider how they'd address a possible disaster, they had to think about what the disaster might look like. "We had a hard time wrapping our arms around that one," Wood says. "It's the unusual problem that's going to burn you," Wood says. Since they couldn't write detailed procedures for every possible emergency, Wood and his colleagues set up a process to help management evaluate a crisis and take appropriate steps. "First, we needed to try to decide who would be making decisions," Wood says. In keeping with the company's recovery plan, Wood and two other business-side executives met within hours of the disaster at a vacant Allison warehouse uphill from the flooded building. There, they assessed damages, and Wood determined the best computer recovery option. Impressed with the service IBM had provided him during the Hugo cleanup, Wood had chosen IBM Business Recovery Services from a short-list of possible vendors. According to the terms of Allison's contract with IBM, Wood could request hot site support, a mobile solution or quick delivery of a new system. Wood opted for a quick shipment to an already established temporary site, and his replacement AS/400 configured to Allison's needs was on the road later that day. Within 30 hours of Wood's call to IBM, Allison's replacement machine was in place. A day later, the company's data had been recovered, and the AS/400 was ready to roll. Having an empty warehouse close by made it easy to find an appropriate spot for the temporary machine and workspace for those who'd been displaced. "It was all part of the plan," Wood says. When Wood called after the disaster, he was told it might take two weeks to get parts.
