Gimmal Extends its DoD 5015.2 Certified Records Management Certification to SharePoint 2016

Gimmal, the world’s leading provider of records management and information governance software, is excited to announce that Gimmal Records Management, which already provides DoD 5015.2-certified for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013, is now extending its certification to Microsoft 2016. Gimmal has always been the first to offer this certification for Microsoft’s SharePoint platform and has become the standard when implementing DoD 5015.2 solutions.

What does this mean?

The DoD 5015.2 certification is an electronic records management software standard created for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). This certification has the strictest requirements based on operational, legislative, and legal needs that must be met by the records management application. The certification is conducted by the Joint Interoperability Test Command, part of the Defense Information Systems Agency that tests information technology and national security systems to make sure all technologies conform to these standards. Meeting the testing requirements of the DoD standard grants software solutions, and the vendors that provide them, with a unique seal of approval that many organizations like to see when evaluating records management software.

“With DoD 5015.2 certification for chapters 2, 3 and 5, Gimmal continues to demonstrate commitment to provide certified solutions on Microsoft’s most current platforms to both commercial and government organizations,” David Quackenbush, CEO of Gimmal, explains. “Our software helps organizations standardize on SharePoint as the primary content and records management repository in the enterprise. Even organizations that do not need all of the features of the DoD 5015.2 standard find the additional capabilities that Gimmal adds to SharePoint critical to their information management programs.”

The highest standard for records management

Now you can transform your 2016 SharePoint environment into a reliable, secure, and centralized records repository that is compliant with both baseline and classified standards of the DoD 5015.2 certification. Organizations can now keep track of all records stored in SharePoint with a central file plan, customizable document libraries, automatic tagging, and forensic destruction, which reduces risk, maximizes compliance, and increases security. By investing in the DoD 5015.2 certification process, Gimmal demonstrates continued commitment in delivering the best and most proven records management systems for everyone.

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.
