Prioritize and Plan for Critical Functions

Prioritize and Plan for Critical Functions

Connection’s Business Impact Analysis helps organizations avoid these worst‑case scenarios:
  • Non-existent, incomplete, or outdated documentation about the organization’s current operating environment
  • Lack of awareness around the financial impact of various disaster scenarios
  • Lost time in a disaster recovery effort due to lack of prioritization

What Is Connection’s Business Impact Analysis?

Connection’s Business Impact Analysis identifies every critical business function inside your organization. It can also identify the risks associated with each function, work site, or supporting system. Connection specialists then quantify the impact of potential disruptions according to your unique function and risk profile.

Enterprise companies have the most work to do because of the size of their IT investments, but mid-market and small businesses need to prepare for outages as well. Organizations that are legally required to maintain a minimum level of downtime can also greatly benefit from these services.

What Is Connection’s Business Impact Analysis?

Connection’s Business Impact Analysis is conducted in three phrases:

Discovery

Discovery

Connection works with you to identify key personnel overseeing your business functions. Connection then schedules stakeholder workshops and one-on-one interviews to determine critical business functions, critical sites, known risks, and vital systems and resources (both related and unrelated to IT). Connection also interviews your IT and facilities departments. In addition to the interviews and workshops, Connection conducts walkthroughs of your worksites and data centers. If you work with hosting providers, Connection will perform a remote inspection of their data center locations.
Analysis

Analysis

Connection analyzes feedback from the workshops, interviews, and walkthroughs to identify and rank your organization’s critical business functions and sites. Connection can also tie your risks to their potential impacts, keeping in mind regulatory, compliance, industry, and best practice requirements. Connection then produces a draft Business Impact Analysis report, quantifying the impact of your risks to your critical business success metrics.
Reporting

Reporting

Connection produces a final Business Impact Analysis report, incorporating your feedback and delivering full findings and recommendations. Connection can also deliver an on-site presentation.
