Satyam Computer Services Ltd., a leading global consulting and information technology services company, has completed what is believed to be a first-of-its-kind, cross-border country outage recovery. Satyam simulated a nationwide outage in India, and revived business operations from its Global Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Center in Singapore. The exercise showcased Satyam's ability to ensure seamless business continuity for its customers, as well as its disaster recovery capabilities. It also highlighted the complex processes involved in an event of such magnitude.

On the morning of September 25, 2006, Satyam initiated a three-day mock drill, a simulation of a national disaster that disrupted Satyam's business. Network control and command resumed almost instantaneously from Satyam's Global Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery site in Singapore. Additionally, in less than 24 hours, Satyam deployed more than 30 mission-critical engineers to Singapore. The entire exercise was facilitated by the Singaporean Government, which provided 750 pre-approved employment passes, as well as preferential treatment for the 30 engineers on Singapore Airlines.
