Platform Architecture

The Continuity Logic platform architecture supports the most comprehensive, dynamic, integrated, and cost-effective enterprise governance solution on the market.

Organization Structure Manager

With the Continuity Logic Organization Structure Manager, clients can model how their organizations operate today.

  • Easily connect people, process, technology, facilities and suppliers
  • Support organizational change management with simple drag-and-drop functionality
  • Visualize organizational interdependencies and relationships
  • Restrict users to the appropriate organizational areas with built-in security measures
  • Automatically create “roll-up” relationships for reporting

Project & Task Manager

The Continuity Logic Project and Task Manager brings processes and applications directly to contributors and participants. Users can manage tasks and forms using custom configuration options and views within the Project and Task Manager.

Data Manager

The Continuity Logic Data Manager provides centralized data management capabilities. The Data Manager comes with built-in data providers to connect and interface with third-party data stores. The data provider model is visual, fast, and easy, connecting the platform with SQLServer databases, SharePoint, CSV files, and more.

Incident Manager

The Continuity Logic Incident Manager takes a proactive approach to guiding departments, personnel, and executives of all levels through seamless collaboration and management of incidents involving failed assets. This reduces losses and the cost of restoring operations regardless of cause, size, location, or complexity.

  • Activate dynamic plans that generate tasks and assignments based on impact scenarios, with automatic alerts
  • Manage incidents and recovery from dashboard drilldown
  • Automatically record exercise or incident steps for post-incident improvement
  • Incorporate lessons learned back into plans automatically or by selection
  • Display and accrue financial impacts in real-time as incidents progress
  • Empower users to log in remotely and monitor recovery status on any device or browser

Forms Manager

The Continuity Logic Forms Manager allows users to quickly design attractive and professional GRC application forms that address various needs, including business impact analysis, risk analysis, and plan approval workflows. Additionally, the Forms Designer is used to visualize and manage information flows in the GRC application. Users can use business-friendly language to represent the information and avoid the complexities of manipulating complex databases or files.

Workflow Manager

The Continuity Logic Workflow Manager is the basis for all process automation on the platform, allowing users to create series of steps that are coordinated into flows to form sets of processing instructions.

The Workflow Manager involves users and runs over a period of time. Think about approving a new policy, plan, or procedure, or a new process being added to a business impact analysis. The Workflow Manager has tasks, deadlines, escalations, and all the pieces that allow you to engage users at the right point and ensure that they get their work done. The Continuity Logic Workflow Manager allows clients to create flows that contain steps and tasks for users and to set how they will be used for processing data and connecting to systems – without user interaction or coding. Continuity Logic Workflow Manager flows are:

  • Rules-based
  • Dynamic and flexible regarding task assignment
  • Supportive of priority management of tasks and messages
  • Capable of organizing tasks and messages by category
  • Helpful for users creating custom task delivery rules

Business Rules Engine

The Continuity Logic Business Rules Engine is used to manage the creation and enforcement of organizational policies and procedures by reflecting the same automatically in process flows, user screens, group management and task management.

The Continuity Logic rules-based engine supports statements of facts, calculations or other ‘declarative’ elements.  They differ from workflows because, while a flow can process logic, it can also take action – whether it is involving users, updating databases, etc.

Continuity Logic rules can be used to return values or trigger an action.

Continuity Logic Rules Engine allows building of business logic without coding.  Typical rules have the following components:

  • Data element
  • Verb
  • Parameters


Continuity Logic’s step-by-step GuideMe navigational tool enables speed and ease of use, leading users through personalized tasks quickly and efficiently – like a GPS system for enterprise governance. Users no longer have to memorize dozens of operations every month; instead they can simply follow personalized guides for completing tasks. The GuideMe tool minimizes the heavy training and re-training that characterizes most GRC platforms, dramatically improving user adoption and data quality.

Content and Integration

Continuity Logic supports a number of integrations and adaptors to various 3rd party partners.  These include HR systems, Change Management Databases (CMDB), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Unified Compliance Framework (UCF), GRC vendors, Emergency Notification providers, Asset Databases, and Recovery applications among others. We are actively pursuing other integrations for our thought-leading clients.

Add fast and easy geographic data analysis to your application with Continuity Logic Maps. Imagine going beyond tables and charts and giving users instant insight into global trends with a tool that provides interactive geographical visualization. In today’s rapidly changing regulatory climate, it’s critical for reporting to identify local patterns in real time, as changes happen.


Protect your business' value with state-of-the-art permissioning, dedicated server instances, and SSL encryption.

User Roles

The Continuity Logic Platform is role-based, supporting an unlimited number of user interfaces by user. Most organizations utilize three key roles:

  • Administrators (or high access users) who control the system with all of the typical administrative functions available to them, including granting role-based access to other users, even down to form level. Administrators usually work from detailed metrics that focus on program management and executive reporting of enterprise dashboards (total plans, compliance/regulatory, total applications/business processes, etc.)
  • Contributors who are often seen as plan owners , utilizing the GuideMe tool to complete plans and tasks, act on notifications, and review progress on policy and procedure
  • Viewers who review and observe processes within the BCP and GRC lifecycles, including testing, exercises, reviews, compliance, risk assessment, and upcoming project awareness

Permission Model

The Continuity Logic platform has a multi-tiered permission model in which each user has a custom set of privileges compared to others within the organization. All data fields can be filtered to showcase exactly what each individual user needs to see (information critical to his or her workflows). Within the Continuity Logic platform, dashboards, forms, and reports will look very different to users with non-parallel privileges.


Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) secures the connection between users and Continuity Logic’s hosted service. SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser, ensuring that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. Client data is encrypted at rest (when it sits in the database in Continuity Logic’s datacenter) and in transit (where SSL certificates come in).

Field-Level Security

Administrators have complete control of what other users have access to, even down to the form and field level. This is a critical feature due to the sensitivity of reports and data. All edits/changes to the database are tracked via the platform’s built-in change management capability, which can also easily generate reports. Security controls are also available for workflow and approvals, which is critical due to the interdependencies between the modules.
