We're excited for this year's SharePoint Conference, which will be held next week in Las Vegas, Nevada. We'll be at booth #308 helping IT professionals understand how all the unique components of an information management strategy should fit together. Come by and create your ideal Lego information manager at our booth!
Gimmal is proud to be exhibiting at ARMA Houston's 2019 Spring Conference. This year, we're empowering records managers with the keys to successful information management in the cloud.
This Valentine's Day, take some time to remember one of the most neglected types of content: documents that support ERP transactions. This content is mission-critical and frequently sensitive, but many times organizations are not able to give it the attention it craves and deserves. There are a couple avenues companies can pursue when considering an enterprise content management (ECM) strategy for content tied to SAP processes.
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.
In a few recent blog posts, we talked about the survey we did with ASUG of SAP professionals. Now, let's dive into the data a little deeper.
The below blog post comes from a white paper produced by ASUG and Gimmal: Cruising Along the Information Highway: Understanding your SAP EIM Environment. It discusses the results of a recent survey of the ASUG community surrounding information management best practice awareness. The data is crystal clear: Almost everyone uses SharePoint. The near-optimal penetration of Microsoft Office 365 as a productivity suite means SharePoint is often the first line of defense when it comes to storing and retrieving documents. Those engaging in EIM would be foolish to ignore its role among most companies, especially those who run SAP technology. Any software solution provider with EIM support products would be wise to integrate well with SharePoint. After all, it’s much easier to leverage and optimize an already-existing product than to try and replace it with a new one, right?

At Gimmal, we spend a lot of time talking about all of the cool things our software can do - and for good reason. Modern records management software can do a lot to make it easier to govern content and execute defensible dispositions. But despite that, we should also remind our readers that there's no such thing as a "magic bullet" when it comes to business processes - there is no panacea that will ever replace proper planning, measured project execution, and realistic change management.
Earlier this year, we unveiled our superhero theme, inviting records managers to join us at their regional ARMA events (as well as ARMA Live!) and answer the question: "what kind of records management hero are you?"
