I met with some great folks from the Gimmal Group last month and was pleased to learn that they are targeting some of their experience at helping enterprises understand how to leverage the SharePoint platform for their Enterprise Content Management and Records Management applications.
The Gimmal Group has years of experience in the ECM and RM space, which, of course, includes years of experience working with OpenText and EMC Documentum, and has an impressive list of customers. I look forward to working with them to help identify (and eventually obliterating?) the perceptions of SharePoint workload boundaries in regards to ECM and RM.
The Gimmal Group has announced two seminars in a series of seminars they are holding to provide their version of an enterprise roadmap for implementing an “Enterprise Content Records Management (ECRM) Program”
Here is a Link to the Seminar Agenda. To Register for one of the Seminars, click here.
Gimmal Seminar Series: Planning for Enterprise Content and Records Management in the SharePoint World
This seminar will provide a roadmap for successfully implementing an Enterprise Content and Records Management (ECRM) Program - one founded on a proven and successful methodology. Component elements will include: "big bucket theory", legal and RM readiness, system models, standard document lifecycles, use case templates, and reference ECRM architectures. Participants will discover how Office 2007 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Services (MOSS 2007) are compelling potential solutions for solving two specific problems that have plagued large organizations: file shares and email. Valuable case study examples will be included.
