Gimmal Records Management is now available for FileNet

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.

For some context, here's an excerpt from our press release.

Historically, most FileNet customers do not implement records management policies within the ECM. The main reason for this is because implementing records management within an ECM platform can be a grueling process and often very expensive that requires costly third-party integrators and custom development. Of the companies that do implement proper records management within the ECM platform, generally, it is siloed to that one repository, leaving the rest of the enterprise information unmanaged and ungoverned. Gimmal understands how this critical issue creates a lot of corporate risk around non-compliance, audits, security, and inefficiencies.

Gimmal’s federated records management software lives outside of any one repository, allowing it to connect to every content repository throughout the enterprise and apply consistent policy and information governance holistically, no matter where it lives.

The connector allows you to manage FileNet documents as well as allow you to declare documents as records. You can apply lifecycle rules that have a duration and have a specific action for disposition. More importantly, you are able to dispose and delete a document while it remains in FileNet without having to transfer it to a records archive like other software vendors.
