A gap analysis is a plrocess of comparing the present situation or state (Present State) to the future situation or state (Expected state).
This method provides a ways to identify the sub optimal or missing stretagies, missing process that led to the current state of the software
or the solution.
By comparing the current state to the expected state, companies, Business units and the individuals can identify what went wrong in achieving the desired state or performance, this will help in getting to the correct path for all the stake holders.
the gap analysis can be conceptual or concrete - in this the stake holder examines the real world scenario or more hypothetical scenarios.
and Stretagic and Operational - in this the entire organisation uses the analysis methods to assess the expected state, in a team environment a team leader verifies each associate in the team to the expected result, this will benefit in establishing some benchmarks as well with in the team .

in any organisation if productivity is not getting achieved over a period of time, the management in the company can examine if the business requirements are set correctly, a proper gap analysis will help the management to fix this issue.

why should there be any gap in the software (performance, scalability, reliabilityor any other feature), since most of the development environments execute  the Agile / Scrum Methodology, ?

AP Analysis:
Gap analysis refers to the process through which a company compares its actual performance to its expected performance to determine whether it is meeting expectations and using its resources effectively. Gap analysis seeks to define the current state of a company or organization and the target state of the same company or organization. By defining and analyzing these gaps, a business management team can create an action plan to move the organization forward and fill the gaps in performance.
Steps in GAP Analysis:
The first step is to accurately outline and define organizational goals. All goals need to be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely.
The second step is to use historical data to measure the current performance of the organization as it relates to its outlined goals.
 The third step is to analyze the data that was collected, which seeks to understand why the measured performance is below the desired levels.
The fourth and final step is to compile a report based on the quantitative data collected, the qualitative reasons why the data is below the benchmark, and to identify action items needed to achieve the organization's goals.
