Gap Analysis is a technique to analyze the gap between the Current system and existing system, and the targeted system. Here gap means the amount of task or change that may be required to get the intended result. It?s a performance level comparison between the present and the proposed functionalities.

A gap analysis is an examination and assessment of your current performance for the purpose of identifying the differences between your current state of business and where you?d like to be. It can be boiled down into a few questions:
Where are we now?
Where do we wish we were?
How are we going to close the gap?

What points to showcase in the GAP Analysis:

Step 1: Identify the current state of your business.
Step 2: Identify where you want to be with your business.
Step 3: Identify the gaps in your business.
Step 4: Devise improvements to close the gaps in your business.

. Analyse your current state (AS ? IS Process)
?   First, we have to choose which area of our business we want to focus on and start with our current state. So, in our case Mr. Henry wanted to create an online platform where it solves present need of farmers i.e., making farm products available to farmers.
?   We need to discover where your organization currently is before so, we can make a plan for reaching our goals. APT IT Solutions make sure MR. Henry understand this to move further in the project.
2. Identify the ideal future state (TO ? BE)
?   Once you have the big picture figured out and understand how your team or organization currently functions, you need to become idealistic. In our case we have to develop an online farm application where we have inputs to initiate the project.
?   Be specific with your objectives, and avoid too many changes to the project, known as scope creep to reach the project in desired time and budget.
3. Find the gap and evaluate solutions
?   Completing the first two steps, we won?t get you great results. Putting them together, however, exposes what?s missing between your performance and your potential.
?   From this we can find gaps where there is exactly lack of information to proceed further.
4. Create and implement a plan to bridge the gap
After we have found the possible ways to bridge the gap and decided which would be best, you likely still need to convince others in your organization of that as well. The changes that you?ll implement may also affect other teams and department, so it?s important to come up with a plan.
