    Hi PRR,

    Gap analysis means to identify the gaps between how the business operates ad its needs against what the package can & can't do. For each gap there will be one of three outcomes which must be recorded and auctioned, GAP must be closed and customised software can be developed close the gap, GAP must be closed but software cannot be written therefore a workaround is required, GAP does not need to be closed.

    In simple terms: Gap means small cracks. In SAP world. In information technology, gap analysis is the study of the differences between two different information systems or applications ( ex; existing system or legacy system with Client and new is SAP), often for the purpose of determining how to get from one state to a new state. A gap is sometimes spoken of as "the space between where we are and where we want to be." Gap analysis is undertaken as a means of bridging that space.

    Actual gap analysis is time consuming and it plays vital role in blue print stage.

    i hope it is very useful to you........

    Hi PRR!

    First it is essential to understand what are the 2 subphases of Business Blueprint phase. In Blueprint phase there are 2 subphases namely -

    1. As Is

    2. To be

    Here in As Is phase the current Business processes of the client are thoroughly understood.

    "Whereas in To Be phase addresses the desired business processes which client envisage. This is properly mapped.

    The difference between these two phases is properly mapped with the use of SAPs various functionalities which is called as GAP Analysis is SAP.

    Hope this will help u in understanding the significance of GAP Analysis.

    Hi,

    During Fit/Gap analysis you examine which business requirements can be fulfilled by SAP (or other software) and which can't. It is used in the analyse phases of the project
