More and more companies inherently acknowledge the need for disaster recovery and business continuity planning. As such, they often forego the details of the Business Impact Analysis (BIA). Others refresh their BIA information every two or three years. In either case, the time and cost of a full-blown needs/impact analysis is often not necessary.
In these cases, an Executive IBPD is the perfect fit. Once your staff is familiar with the process and your initial requirements have been defined, an Executive IBPD can refresh your information in a fraction of the time (and for a fraction of the cost) of a full-blown BIA. Our proprietary IBPD tool enables us to conduct the necessary interviews online via web conferencing so that typical scheduling difficulties are completely eliminated…we give you direct access to our calendars and you simply schedule any open time that matches your staff’s availability. There’s never been an easier or more accurate way to define your latest requirements.

The goal of a traditional BIA is sound in theory—to identify and prioritize the business’ critical processes relative to the losses that would result from their interruption, and then, to convince management to fund the most cost- and operationally-effective architecture to recover those processes in the aftermath of a disaster.
WTG has developed a best practice approach that defines mission-critical applications, second and third level interactions, upstream and downstream dependencies, recovery requisites, data integrity requirements, recovery sequences and solution architectures better than any form of traditional Business Impact Analysis (BIA).
The goal of a traditional BIA is sound in theory—to identify and prioritize the business’ critical processes relative to the losses that would result from their interruption. However, in practice, this process repeatedly fails to produce the desired results and in virtually every instance we have seen, delays and complicates the recovery planning process.
