Events in Office 365

April 25, 2018

Microsoft announced their Event framework for Advanced Data Governance (ADG) this week. Gimmal has been working with them on this capability for the last year, and we believe it adds significant capability to their cloud based governance. Here is a link to a presentation we made with them last year that illustrates a common scenario. An employee is terminated in an organization that uses SAP as its ERP system, Office 365 for document management, and Advanced Data Governance for content governance for Office 365 workloads. When the employee is terminated in SAP HR, all of the documents in SAP related to that user are made final and started through a disposition lifecycle according to organizational policy. This is all made possible through the recently announced ADG event framework from Microsoft.

(our demonstration starts at minute 58:00 of Nishan’s session)

Here is more information about this solution:

Fifteen Years of Gimmal

May 21, 2017

Fifteen years ago, on or about this date, we founded Gimmal Group, Inc. We grew the company rapidly and won lots of awards. Eventually, we sold to Rubicon Technology Partners in January of this year. Since then, I have had the chance to discuss all this with many of our employees and former employees and all have expressed pride in having been part of our success. Not success in the sense that we grew rapidly or made money, but in the sense that we stayed true to our strategy, mission, and values as a team. We worked through good years and hard years, and we continued to invest in our team and in transforming our business in anticipation of a brighter future.

Our ability to weather the storm and transform our team was a testament to the strength of our squad and we are proud of them and their accomplishments. Our wonderful clients and partners continued to reward us with challenging work and continued opportunity because of our team.

When we began fifteen years ago, we had fairly modest goals for growth that we greatly exceeded. The momentum of Gimmal continues to impress our partners, competitors, clients and friends. We built a company and culture that we can be proud of in every respect. 2017 brings new challenges for us to stand and deliver. Live long and prosper.
