Gimmal Workplace Compliance Now Includes In-Place Policy Management

Today, we're excited to launch a new version of Gimmal Workplace Compliance!

Our flagship solution now includes new federated policy management features for high volumes of content – keeping information "in place" in the business system where it resides. 

This enables enterprises to avoid the cost and burden of migrating content or training users to tag or classify content. These enhancements also provide customers with additional deployment options, including software-as-a-service.

The process of applying policies across repositories, whether in the cloud or on premises, is now simpler than ever. This latest release provides improved automation through rule sets and rules-based triggers. By adding rules to policies to classify content instead of relying on manual tagging, Workplace Compliance simplifies and improves the information governance process. These enhanced features allow for complete information governance across the enterprise, no matter the repository.

Additional enhancements include:

  • Apply centralized policies to all information across any repository
  • Improve data security with a content rules engine that classifies content
  • Classify and manage data across disparate systems without moving it to a proprietary data store
  • Destroy unwanted and obsolete content at the end of the information lifecycle
  • Content classification that categorizes content based on similar textual elements
  • Create proactive policies ensuring content is managed according to risk and value
  • Eliminate eDiscovery mistakes by placing records or entire case files on legal hold

“This release is a revolutionary step forward in the governance of information and greatly simplifies an enterprise’s ability to implement an overarching information governance solution with little or no end-user involvement or impact to its current internal systems,” said David Quackenbush, Gimmal’s Chief Executive Officer.

We offer an open webinar every Tuesday at 11AM Central Time with more information on building and maintaining an information governance plan for all corporate information. Visit http://bit.ly/gimmal-demo to register!

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 rigid 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.
