Base-line metricThe initial stage to any new software engineering development: determine the software and hardware components as the required targets and apply appropriate deployment, testing, performance and monitoring tools for data acquisition to establish a baseline metric.

Gap AnalysisIdentify and test: software stacks - FOSS or commercial or some combination of software tools, toolkits and frameworks for a customized development or performance analysis of the target systems.

Final analysisGap Analysis Follow-up: after the completion of the Gap Analysis newly developed and JUnit tested software modules can be installed, rigorous performance testing and appropriate tuning techniques may be applied resulting in a well documented Final Analysis.
