Vote for Gimmal in the InfoGovCon 2017 Awards!

Information Governance Conference 2017 is closing in, and the award nominations have just opened! As they describe it:

"This conference is the premier gathering of the leaders in the field of Information Governance. It is designed to offer exceptional educational and networking opportunities to increase the effectiveness information efforts, while sharing best practices."

We're proud to announce that Gimmal is featured in two award categories this year: We are nominated as "Best Information Governance Company of 2017" and three members of our leadership team have been nominated for "Information Governance Expert of the Year 2017."

Best Information Governance Company of 2017

InfoGovCon defines the winner of this category as "an Information Governance product provider who has demonstrated excellence in their products in 2017." Our software leverages our collective decades of expertise in records and information management to provide the highest standard in governance and compliance across SharePoint and Office 365. Our acquisition of RecordLion extends those capabilities far beyond the Microsoft ecosystem, allowing businesses to establish a cloud-first view of all enterprise content, no matter where it exists.

That's why we think Gimmal is a clear winner in this category. If you agree, lend us your support with a vote at!

Infographic: Is Your SAP EIM Environment Running on Bald Tires?

In a few recent blog posts, we talked about the survey we did with ASUG of SAP professionals. Now, let's dive into the data a litter deeper.

Can SharePoint and SAP Work Hand-in-Hand?

The below blog post comes from a white paper produced by ASUG and Gimmal: Cruising Along the Information Highway: Understanding your SAP EIM Environment. It discusses the results of a recent survey of the ASUG community surrounding information management best practice awareness. The data is crystal clear: Almost everyone uses SharePoint. The near-optimal penetration of Microsoft Office 365 as a productivity suite means SharePoint is often the first line of defense when it comes to storing and retrieving documents. Those engaging in EIM would be foolish to ignore its role among most companies, especially those who run SAP technology. Any software solution provider with EIM support products would be wise to integrate well with SharePoint. After all, it’s much easier to leverage and optimize an already-existing product than to try and replace it with a new one, right?
