Dear Sai Ram,

When you are implementing , first you need to study the existing business process of the Customer. This is ASIS.

Then you need to map this business process in SAP . We need to MAP the ASIS to SAP scenario(TO BE).

The <b>Gaps between the ASIS and TOBE study</b> is known as GAP analysis.

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 Business Blueprint[AS IS Process] stage.

A through Gap Analysis will identify the gaps between how the business operates and 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 actioned,

1. GAP must be closed and customised software can be developed

2. GAP must be closed but software cannot be written therefore a workaround is required

3. GAP does not need to be closed.

A point worth mentioning here is that at time people confuse between user-exits and Gap Analysis. User exits are standard gate ways provided by SAP to exit the standard code and we can write our own code with the help of ABAP workbench, its not new functionality which we are trying to build in sap but its slight enhancement within the same code.

Gap analysis is start point of Realization and once business Blueprint is finished we have to find the realization of sap system for client requirment and there will be certain gaps when compared to system fit. Those gaps can be closed either by re-engineering of business process to fit with SAP or we have to use USER exits in case of small deviations or complete enhancements with the help of ABAP to fit with the SAP system.

Naveen.

GAP Analysis

A through gap analysis will 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 actioned, 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.

Business blue print stage is called as is process. Fit gap means, before implementing the SAP all the business data is in the form of documents, we cannot keep this data as is in the SAP. There should be a gap. So by filling this gap, we make configuration with the help of these documents. This is called as fit gap analysis. In this stage, we should analysis the gap between as is and is as process

1. GAAP-Generally Accepted Accounting Practices- which is used as accounting standards Internationally and need to be followed by MNC and List companies.

2.GAP analysis-in SAP- while implementation of a project with a client, you will find the requirment of the client and the available solution in SAP system( ie either basic reuirement/ reports... etc) .

If the client requirement is not able to met, then it is called GAP analysis and how you will meet the gap is need to be stated in Business process document and say that it should be possible / not.

is it clear?
