 Central aim of organisation
Research, training, consulting and development in the field of Agile Methods, Portals and Recommender Systems.

 Briefly describe your organisation
JIPP.IT GmbH was founded in March 2009 with the goal to provide high-quality consulting services in project management and requirements engineering. The main focus always was to work with agile methods, especially Scrum. The first project in 2009 was to reorganize the operational structure and installation of a PMO at the Sparda Datenverarbeitung, a banking IT vendor company in Nuernberg/Germany. It soon turned out consulting is just part of the market demands. The first software development project was started in July 2009 as a subcontractor for a Thales project. The goal was to deliver a train security system to manage, control, and prevent potential malfunctions and train accidents for the train infrastructure in Saudi Arabia.
Both projects motivated the shareholders to grow the business. New business areas, like system administration, Sharepoint development, and Legacy Systems were installed. After three years of operation the management team decided to re-position the company on the market to strengthen strengths. In multiple workshops, led by Immo Mohrenschildt, CEO of Mohrenschildt Outsourcing Partner, the Competence Center for Agile Software Development was identified. As the main experience and knowledge within JIPP.IT covers all aspects of Agile Software Development, it was logical to turn down less successful business areas, and to focus on our strong and outstanding areas.
Our future goals are to establish a wide market acceptance of our world-class training and consulting services, together with our outstanding software and portal development solutions. Our own products will be continued, and together with universities and research institutes we will work on enhancing technology and methods. It is this combination of consulting, development, and research that differentiates us from our competition.

 RTD Experiences & Publications

 RTD Experience
Our business area Innovation covers our own product development activities and our research activities. Both sets of activities are focussed on Agile Methods. Over the past few years we were able to improve certain methods, disciplines and approaches to make operational structures and business processes easier.

Product Development:
We develop own products for several different industries, using the same methods and technologies we offer in our training, consulting, and software development services. Scrum as the main method and Agility as the main philosophy are the drivers for our successful products. In 2010 we were featured by the Steirische Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft mbH (Styrian Commerce Funding Foundation) as one of the innovative high-tech-companies in Styria due to the concept and development of our intelligent CV creation and management tool.

In 2012 we reached the 20th place out of more than 1000 finalists in the run of the most succesful young entrepreneurs in Austria with our company structure, methodological approach and product development. All together is a promise for us and our clients, that our projects will be succesful, efficient and satisfying.

The following list shows an excerpt of concept-to-product endeavours:

* CVWizard - An intelligent CV creation and management solution, with artificial intelligence and semantic match and search (Java EE, Liferay)
* Personal Dashboard - A social network solution focusing on personal parameters (Java EE, Liferay)
* Horizont - A company database portal (Java EE, Liferay)

JIPP.IT understands research as an obligation for innovative high-tech companies. Together with universities, colleges, high-schools, and independent research institutes we try to change the world of software development. We use our academic background and years of experience in international and national projects in IT, to uncover better ways of working. In studies executed together with universities, in academic theses written by students for and with JIPP.IT, we found ways, methods, and techniques to improve structures and processes. For JIPP.IT employees it is part of the daily tasks to think about optimization possibilities. Once they are uncovered, we formalize them and share it with certain communities and our clients. We love to analyze, and we love to optimize!
