Explore the information lifecycle at DocPoint and QAI's 10th annual user conference

Join us May 16th at the National Harbor just south of D.C for this year's DocPoint Solutions and QAI User Conference! Attend to gain first-hand knowledge on the latest, most innovative content management trends, tools, and technologies. 

To quote DocPoint, attendees can expect to:

Hear from industry experts on the latest in content management and network with 400 of your peers and colleagues. And new this year, we will also be featuring our “Conference Fair” where attendees will have the opportunity to engage with sponsors to better understand the newest technologies that can help solve the most pressing business challenges. This is one conference you don’t want to miss!

Gimmal is proud to sponsor this event, and will be exhibiting and hosting a breakout session in "The Lounge." Don your smoking jacket and come to the Lounge to hear from Gimmal representatives Pat Brim and Russ Savee. Our interactive session is titled "Managing Documents at the Speed of Modern Government," and will explore the lifecycle of the average government record, and the twists and turns its life can take. Learn how regulations affect document management best practices, where and why to implement lifecycle-based records management and what your organization can do to prepare for M-12-18 before December 2019.

In addition to our session, we'll be talking about the information lifecycle at our table on the exhibitor floor and raffling off a special gift that any content management professional would be glad to take home (and consume outside of working hours).

We hope you can attend!

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.
