An SAP-Certified HTTP Content Server on Office 365

Organizations want to optimize processes and information management by bringing together strategic IT investments. We've seen that organizations can realize their vision for Microsoft as a strategic investment and ubiquitous content management platform, by bringing unstructured content from SAP systems into Office 365 to provide both great value and drastic cost savings to an organization.

CHS is a joint customer of Gimmal and Microsoft, and we believe they are an excellent example of how SAP content management can be achieved in Office 365, so we asked them to present their strategy with us in this webcast. We're very grateful they agreed.

Avoid the Cost of Inaction

Presented by Gimmal Manager Director SAP Solutions Chris Vassalotti, Microsoft Principal Program Manager Ian Story, and CHS Enterprise Architect and Srikant Padma, this webinar explored drivers for SAP content management, the unique value drivers of Office 365 and SharePoint, a total cost of ownership and time to value analysis, and CHS's use case. We also presented a demonstration of how it all works from the perspective of an end user.

Why Should Records Management be Important to You

Why should an organization care about records management? When users throughout all departments are creating new records without a thought to how they are cataloged or tagged, the sprawl of records can become a real threat. Unstructured data can lead to compliance issues for highly regulated industries. When proper records management isn’t a top priority, content that should have been disposed of for security purposes is left vulnerable for anyone to find and distribute.  

Creating Compliance in Chaos: A Consultant's Story

Records and Information Management (RIM) is constantly changing and evolving as record managers begin to realize the benefits of automation in their daily operations. In my 6 years of consulting, I have seen everything from heavily manual business processes to automated document management solutions.  Even as time goes by, information professionals continue to face the long-standing hardship of trying to get end users to comply with either internal or external regulations when it comes to records management.  Lately, there has been an apparent shift from rigid business centric solutions to end user centric solutions. 

Gimmal at ARMA International InfoCon 2019

Once a year, members in the records management community come together for ARMA’s annual conference to discuss the latest advancements and best practices for modern information managers.  ARMA, the global authority of information management and governance, hosted this year’s conference, ARMA InfoCon, in Nashville, TN. While attendees were not in the typical “record” industry that Nashville is known for, the location called for a great mix of music and information management knowledge.
