Integrating business continuity planning (BCP) into an IT project aids in:
the retrofitting of the business continuity requirements.
the development of a more comprehensive set of requirements.
the development of a transaction flowchart.
ensuring the application meets the user’s needs.
Integrating business continuity planning (BCP) into the development process ensures complete
coverage of the requirements through each phase of the project. Retrofitting of the business
continuity plan’s requirements occurs when BCP is not integrating into the development
methodology. Transaction flowcharts aid in analyzing an application’s controls. A business
continuity plan will not directly address the detailed processing needs of the users.
