Gap Analysis Matrix - TOGAF

The Specification document for TOGAF states:

Gap analysis is widely used in the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM) to validate an architecture that is being developed. The basic premise is to highlight a shortfall between the Baseline Architecture and the Target Architecture; that is, items that have been deliberately omitted, accidentally left out, or not yet defined.

The MDG Technology for TOGAF provides a Gap Analysis Matrix that you can use to:

  • Identify gaps between the baseline and target
  • Create Gap elements (if any gaps are identified) in the repository, which can later be addressed and assigned as tasks; the Gap elements can then be used to prioritize activities
  • Create and manage Gap Analysis Matrix profiles
