Strategic Session 2
BIA: A New Approach in Service Oriented Industry
|Shankar Swaroop, Navy Exchange Service Command|
Traditional business impact analysis outlines a methodology where analysts work top down (from business to IT) documenting the impact to the business when critical processes fail. As IT is advancing, it is becoming more an enabler of business rather than a support function. This is more apparent in a service-oriented industry than anyother place. Discover a new bottom-up (from IT to business) approach to BIA in a service-oriented industry, by identifying the business processes that are enabled by IT. It also equips you with easy statistical techniques.
