Gimmal is proud to announce that we've released a FileNet connector for Gimmal Records Management. FileNet now joins Box, Documentum, Office 365, and others in our roster of supported repositories. Records Managers now can easily manage and declare records, apply policy, and manage disposition in FileNet alongside the rest of their mission-critical content.
2018 was a year of massive change at Gimmal. This year, we've added a bunch of new features to our next generation records management platform, including connectors for Documentum and Box. We believe intelligent, cross-repository records management will continue to grow in importance to organizations next year, as leaders begin to understand that records management departments have the potential to unlock vast amounts of value stored in otherwise neglected information.
Even though Microsoft SharePoint has been recognized as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Content Services platforms for multiple years in a row, when it comes to using SharePoint as an enterprise content management (ECM) platform many users coming from the world of traditional legacy ECM hold the opinion that SharePoint is just great for collaboration and not a great platform to manage content and the information essential to business operations. That's not quite right.

The below is a report from the field. Abby Moore, Principal of Services at Gimmal, recently helped a client understand how to navigate the gap between where they were and where they wanted to go. In this post, she demonstrates why a neutral third party can be just what an organization needs to manage competing priorities and navigate the silos that inhibit coordination between business units.
Physical records management has always been tricky, especially as complex systems have grown up around it. As more of our business information is created and stored electronically, physical records tend to become increasingly siloed. Normally, organizations need a segregated, on-premises system, or manual process that is not well-integrated with the electronic side of the business. Custom legacy platforms have a tendency to hamper the growth of an organizations infrastructure, and are difficult to replace.
So, what makes a record different from any other piece of information - electronic or physical? How does one identify something as a record? Who gets to decide? Is there an approval process for verifying business records? Does every piece of content need to be investigated for record quality? How about voice messages, text messages, and chat threads?
