What Analyst Gartner is Saying About JiVS:

Data Migration is listed in 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant “Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement”

The 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant lists 13 international software suppliers and shows the latest trends and developments on the SDAAR market. SDAAR is standing for Structured Data Archiving and Application Retirement and covers two main topics:


Structured Data Archiving (online Database Archiving)


Application Retirement (focus of JiVS History)

JiVS is listed again in the Magic Quadrant and has made a big step in the right direction! Especially so, given that Gartner has very strict admission criteria, this inclusion is a manifestation of quality and recognition. With our solution JiVS History we provide a highly efficient solution to our clients in the application retirement area for the replacement of SAP and other standard systems as many standard interfaces and specifications are already available “out of the box”. Furthermore, we can already demonstrate with our numerous successful projects for international large accounts that JiVS as a strategic application retirement platform also works sustainably well for the replacement of extremely heterogeneous legacy system environments. Also our cloud offering for JiVS has been exceptionally well accepted by the market.

Operation costs could be reduced with JiVS – as compared to a continued operation of legacy systems – by more than 80 percent. This enables clients to manage their unstructured and structured data in a unique cost-effective way and to use it over many years with the best possible TCO.  This stands in contrast to many other system suppliers that are consistently too expensive in operation and too inflexible for users and in their actual field of use. With several hundred discontinued systems, due to the use of JiVS History, Data Migration AG is a market leader for large enterprises and international corporations. Reference clients are companies like Alstom, ABInBev or Deutsche Telekom.

Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company, has confirmed in the latest 2016 report that JiVS is progressing in the right direction within the Application Retirement space and has confirmed:


Superior TCO for Application Retirement of a broad variety of Legacy Applications such as SAP, JD Edwards, BaaN, Siebel, Oracle and other commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom applications


Leader in cloud deployment models for Application retirement, with positive customer feedback


Data Migration provides straightforward access to archived data, and an easy-to-use interface
