In IT, complexity grows over time. When companies adopt a new enterprise technology, it always affects their processes and workflow – often causing "messes" and "clutter" that need to be cleaned up. That's an essential task in any production environment and it never really ends. Growing complexity has to be managed by your team and that management takes time, resources, personnel, and energy.
But keeping the lights on matters just as much. It's easy to devote all your resources to managing production complexity, but all those changes can break your business continuity (BC) plan. Without an up-to-date plan, you run the risk of downtime and disaster. Which can result reputational damage or ultimately the end of your business.
So how do you revitalize your business continuity plan? How do you keep it fresh? How do you keep your plan up to date in the face of complexity, constant change and limited resources?
