Gap analysis

A gap analysis is a technique used to assess the differences between the current and desired performance levels of a company's systems or applications, as well as determine how to meet those requirements.
A gap analysis is a method of assessing the differences in performance between a business' information systems or applications to determine whether the system requirements are being met and, if not, the steps needed to do so. Gap refers to the space between "where we are" (the company's present state) and "where we want to be" (its target state). A gap analysis is also known as a needs analysis, needs assessment or need-gap analysis. Gap analysis can be utilized by individuals in a company, project managers and process improvement teams. Small businesses, in particular, can also benefit from performing gap analyses when they're in the process of figuring out how to allocate resources. In addition to traditional gap analysis, companies can also use the more specialized methods of SWOT analysis or benchmarking.
