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.

3 Tips to Ensure KORA Compliance

There has been a spotlight on the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) in the media lately, largely due to recent violations. Under KORA, any individual can request public records from government bodies. If all requested records are not provided within in a specific timeframe, these organizations are subject to significant repercussions. This is merely one example of a ‘sunshine law’. The purpose of sunshine laws is to provide transparency into government agencies by giving the public access to local government proceedings.

Creating a Retention Schedule that Works

Creating a usable, automated, and simple file plan is an important part of ensuring records are managed in a consistent manner and that you are protected from legal risks, such as failure to disclose information during a discovery proceeding or the unauthorized leakage of information. The first step in the process is creating a retention schedule, which outlines how long records are kept in accordance with the organization’s obligations and the law.

How to Manage Your Sprawling Content

Sprawling content, the spread of content across multiple repositories, has been a thorn in the side of records managers since the dawn of document management. Consolidation of repositories, which began in the early 2000s, at first looked to be the solution. However, it ended up highlighting the problems of content sprawl due to the high costs of consolidation as well as need for records managers to manage multiple file plans. Federated records management offers a solution to these problems but doesn’t offer the same locked-down approach with regards to regulation that consolidation can. Consolidation of repositories and federated records management both have pros and cons and, depending on your organization’s content management processes and repositories, one can be more beneficial than the other in the long term.
