Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
Gimmal, a world-leading provider of enterprise information management and governance solutions built on Microsoft SharePoint, is pleased to announce its partnership with Paragon Solutions Inc., an advisory consulting and systems integration firm. This relationship will help joint customers meet increasing challenges around records management, regulatory compliance as well as SAP archival and interoperability. Many of Paragon’s clients are life sciences, healthcare and financial services companies who will benefit from the platform Gimmal provides and the industry knowledge and solutions offered by Paragon.
As Gartner states, records management by itself is no longer enough; we must be thinking about solutions that resolve issues connected to information governance and management. With the shifting responsibilities of the CIO vendors simply selling or implementing technology is a non-starter, vendors must provide a solution to the pains that the CIO is struggling to overcome, and this comes with truly understanding the CIO’s business. Being able to provide value-based solutions to CIOs and the organizations they represent starts with an end-to-end solution that starts with a strategy and is maintained for the life of the solution.
Together Gimmal and Paragon will be able to provide their customers with a comprehensive client strategy for driving information management solutions based on the SharePoint platform. From early stage planning to software deployment and integration, tied to long term support and maintenance there will be unparalleled support for the entire solution lifecycle. In addition to this, both organizations will be able to extend their industry expertise to their respective clients. Gimmal offers extensive expertise in energy, public sector and manufacturing and believes Paragon will accelerate its ability to deliver solutions into additional verticals such as life sciences, healthcare and financial services.
“We are very excited to join efforts with such an established solution delivery company as Paragon,” stated David Quackenbush, president at Gimmal. “As partners we see extensive promise and opportunity to deliver information management and governance solutions to clients and provide a new ability to drive industry focused and SharePoint-based solutions to attack the pains of CIOs in life sciences, communications and media and insurance companies in North America.”
“Our partnership with Gimmal will enable us to combine our deep SharePoint experience and information management expertise with Gimmal’s compliance, governance and SAP interoperability solutions to deliver the most impactful solutions to clients seeking to achieve information governance in SharePoint,” states Eric Raper, SVP of Corporate Alliances at Paragon Solutions, Inc.
