German term or phrase: Kenntnisse der Ist-Abläufe
I am not sure what the "Ist-Abläufe / Soll-Prozesse" are here. Context: the document is a legal contract pertaining to provision of IT services. So I'm assuming this is IT terminology. I'd be grateful for any help. Thanks in advance.

Explanation:
"Ist" usually refers to actual and "soll" to "target", so if this is a contract for IT services then it would mean what the actual performance is measured against the target performance specified in the agreement.
