We're headed to Vegas for SharePoint Conference 2019!

We're excited for this year's SharePoint Conference, which will be held next week in Las Vegas, Nevada. We'll be at booth #308 helping IT professionals understand how all the unique components of an information management strategy should fit together. Come by and create your ideal Lego information manager at our booth!

An information management program should manage content from creation to deletion. We’re excited to show organizations how to find the right bricks to fill potential gaps in their information governance structure. Attendees are encouraged to schedule time with a Gimmal rep at their booth to explore these challenges.

Governing Content in Office 365

Beyond our booth presence, we also have a speaker session on Wednesday, May 22nd at 8:30 AM. CTO Chris Caplinger will be presenting “Governing Content in Office 365,” an ITPro Presentation.

Over the past year Microsoft has added large amounts of data governance functionality to Office 365. Organizations need to understand these capabilities if they want to ensure their content remains protected, managed, and findable.

In this session, Gimmal CTO Chris Caplinger will explore ways to use these capabilities to govern content in SharePoint Online, OneDrive, Teams, and Exchange, as well as what happens when you need to govern data outside of Office 365. We’ll explore classification, data loss prevention, data governance and more during our presentation. Attend to learn how new governance features in Office 365 can help you:

  • Protect sensitive content with encryption, markings, and more
  • Manage content from an import, archiving, retention, and disposition perspective
  • Find content inside and outside of Office 365 for everyday tasks, GDPR requests, and eDiscovery

We hope to see you there! Click the banner below to schedule time with an information management expert at our booth.

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.
