The JiVS Platform provides all the components for data management. Whatever individual application you have, with JiVS you can manage your valuable enterprise data independent from other systems.
Provides all the tools you need to import data from any source system, to process these (ETL), to create automated test data and to provide the appropriate data format for any kind of target system. A data migration project is done for numerous reasons, which include replacing or upgrading servers or storage equipment, moving data to third-party cloud providers, website consolidation, infrastructure maintenance, application or database migration, software upgrades, company mergers or data center relocation.
With the JiVS Platform you can manage release updates from systems by any manufacturer. JiVS Migration helps you to extract data from your legacy system. With JiVS Platform you can then tidy up your data and with JiVS History you can archive your historical data to be audit-compliant. Then you can shut-down your legacy system! You only import the data that you will be needing in the future into your new system. You can set up your new system from scratch using a “greenfield approach”. Another typical application example for the JiVS Platform is, for example, an SAP release update. Often, legacy systems are still operated simply to provide access to historical data. On the JiVS Platform, release updates are no problem. With JiVS History, existing data is historized, regardless of the system involved. With JiVS Migration, the data is cleaned up and exported to the new system. The legacy system can then be shut down. The data is still fully accessible. Only the data that is really needed for your business is exported to the new system.
Today’s IT organizations face tremendous challenges to innovation. With budgets tied up in supporting existing applications and infrastructure, there is little room to invest in new technologies that would otherwise help grow business. Many of these applications are legacy systems that were acquired or replaced when new applications were deployed. And although the business value of these systems decreases with every passing year, organizations often continue to support them for the purposes of data access and compliance. But the cost of doing so can consume over 50 percent1 of an overall IT budget. An effective strategy to free up budget for investing in new and innovative deployments is to retire legacy applications.
