remind him about partial data recovery and point in time restores.
the little bit i read says NIGHTLY backups, and does not mention SQL Server point in time recoveries throughout the day.
if something goes wrong late in the day, can the business lose the entire days data to last nights restore?
For partial point in time restores, you need the native full + transaction log backups so you can restore to a new database and MERGE data to fix those issues like when someone accidentally inserts/updates one specific table's worth of data, and that's the only thing you have to recover.
