Guaranteed Success for Every Project
The JiVS Methodology is the foundation for the success of our projects. It is supported by the JiVS Platform in every individual use case. Up to now, JiVS Methodology has been developed over the last 20 years, and will be enhanced and optimized with each additional project.
The basic ideas of JiVS Methodology seem simple at a first glance but for that very reason, are even more effective:
As opposed to conventional methods, with the JiVS Methodology, we do not simply transfer all existing data but tidy them up at the same time. The whole procedure can be compared to moving house: We don’t just move the cardboard boxes from A to B but take the opportunity to do a thorough clearing-out at the same time.
Once we have completed our work, you get absolutely top-quality data at your disposal. In the long run this saves more time, effort and costs than any other migration procedure.
