Come to ARMA Houston's 2019 Spring Conference and learn the keys to cloud success!

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.

When so much of your information is in the cloud, it's hard to get a good view of it from the ground. That's why we believe records managers will have the best success managing information in the cloud if they move their processes beyond the repository and pursue a truly overhead view.

Modern enterprises need cloud-based, in place records management

Today, companies rely on lots of different systems to manage records and information. Most records management systems are built upon restrictive technologies that require on-premise implementations and do not allow integration with multiple platforms. These limitations demand labor-intensive, manual processes, and force records managers to expend a lot of effort managing rules across multiple systems.

Intelligent records management requires a holistic view across all the information in your environment, whether in the cloud repositories, on-premises repositories, or physical information. 

Attain cloud success - and keep it

Lots of organizations make ambitious plans for their cloud migrations, only to miss the mark by failing to account for unique information management challenges distributed processes and disparate information systems can introduce. At ARMA Houston and elsewhere this year, we'll be helping organizations identify these challenges and develop a plan before something comes along and bursts their balloons.

Catch a draft upward

Digital transformation is a journey that requires more than just moving information to the cloud. Business processes, information governance, and the tools required must also reside in the cloud to create a truly digital, modern, and innovative workplace. Join us at the Norris Conference Center in April to learn how we can help you reach these goals!

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 ridged 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.
