Business Issues

A Web site is more than bandwidth, scripts, and pages to view. There is a business side to it, as well. The issues that are key to a Web presence include risk management, relationships with the various participants, expectations, and other elements needed for a sound business decision that are discussed in this section.

Risk Management

There is a fashionable concept that all risk within a business can be managed across the enterprise. This includes classical financial risks (such as currency fluctuations that affect profits on exported goods) and operational risks (such as a failure of critical information systems). To effectively manage risk, you need to plan how the Web site and its supporting organization will continue to deliver value in the face of partial failure. This business continuity planning is the flip side of disaster recovery in the event of total failure.
