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.'
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
- This feature is not available in the Professional edition of Enterprise Architect
