Dutch term or phrase: bedrijfskritische applicaties
Context: I am currently translating a brochure for an IT company specialising in ICT management systems. One sentence reads as follows:

"Wij houden uw bedrijfskritische applicaties en data in de lucht waardoor uiteindelijk úw klanten tevreden zullen zijn."

Might "bedrijfskritisch" imply that the system/application is of critical importance to a company?

Any help with this phrase will be rewarded with KudoZ points asap!

Thanks,

Pikey
