Analysis and Concept

Step 2 “Analysis and Concept” deals with establishing the goals and solutions for the recovery plans.

Gap Analysis

During the analysis phase the target requirements for the availability of IT services (IT applications) should be taken from BCM and be compared to the currently implemented possibilities for IT emergency preparation. The main criterion for the availability in emergency mode is the recovery time objective (RTO) of an IT service. This can be determined from a Business Impact Analysis or from Service Level Agreements. In some IT areas the documentation required for the analysis will not be available. In these cases we will use proven alternative methods to create this data.

ITSC Solution Concept

The ITSC solution concept describes the selected solution options. These solution options serve as the basis for creating the ITSC plans.
