Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Gimmal, a leading provider of SharePoint Information Governance and SAP Interoperability software, is excited to announce that its Information Governance Platform for Microsoft SharePoint remains the only native SharePoint solution certified against the very stringent Department of Defense (DoD) 5015.02 standard for records management. With this most recent recertification, for SharePoint 2013, the Gimmal platform also offers pairing with key partners Colligo, Harmon.ie, and Repstor for email management, and AvePoint and Metalogix for external BLOB storage.
“With the Gimmal Information Governance Platform for Microsoft SharePoint, organizations can rely on a highly productive, scalable and efficient solution. Gimmal extends SharePoint with features that help automate and centrally manage the process of records classification, metadata management and retention management,” David Quackenbush, president of Gimmal, explains. “By repeatedly investing in the DoD 5015.2 certification process Gimmal has demonstrated continued excellence in its endeavor to deliver better information management for everyone while ensuring the highest level of legal and regulatory compliance for its customers.”
The DoD 5015.2 standard defines the basic requirements that are based on operational, legislative and legal needs that must be met by records management application products acquired by the Department of Defense (DoD) and its components. Many government bodies and commercial organizations also consider the certification a gold standard for records management solutions. The stringent testing is conducted by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC), part of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) that tests information technology and national security systems. Meeting the testing requirements of the DoD standard grants vendors and their software solutions a unique seal of approval that many organizations demand when evaluating enterprise information management software.
