It seems to be inarguable anymore whether or not an enterprise of any size needs a high availability and disaster recovery (HA/DR, also often called business continuity (BC)) plan in place. The sticking point is more along the lines of how much time and money any business concern wants to invest in the process. Particularly in the cases of enterprises that have never experienced any significant downtime or downtime consequences, or that remain convinced the stability of IBM i servers is not just legendary but permanent, it can be challenging to set aside money, personnel, and systems time to prepare for a "just in case" scenario. The upshot is that it's something that has to be done, if only to avoid how awful the consequences might be if you don't.
