mission critical

Any operation, data, or system that is fundamental to the success of a project or endeavor. Such functions cannot tolerate intervention, compromise, or shutdown without causing the endeavor to fail. For example, R&D and product design might be a firm’s core competencies, but an e-commerce firm’s computer system is mission-critical.
