Potential IT Disruption Is Close To Home
Sometimes, it seems as if the IT industry and its supply chain is just one step away from a disaster.
However, one of the biggest potential IT disruptions lies closer to home: a massive earthquake along the San Andreas fault or another fault running under the San Francisco and Silicon Valley area.
Yes, it's true there are other earthquake-prone areas of the world including Japan and Taiwan where quakes have disrupted the IT supply chain. But only in Silicon Valley, home to companies such as Apple, Google, Hewlett-Packard and Intel, is there such a high concentration of IT talent and intellectual property.
