Abstract: Being responsive in cases of unplanned disruptions has been difficult for management in the past, but for IT it is even more challenging: IT Systems are developed to fulfill predefined properties, and offer a hard-wired set of exception handling functionalities. Resilience encompasses reaction on disturbances beyond the scope of known properties. An organization is resilient if its capabilities can be adapted to new requirements which have not been explictly incorporated into the existing IT design. This paper introduces the concept of resilience and its implications in the fields of business information systems.
