Anyone who has followed this blog for any length of time knows I work for Gimmal, a consulting, integration and solutions firm based out of Houston, Texas.  I joined Gimmal over three years ago because I was convinced they were positioned to become the leading SharePoint records and information management consultancy worldwide and I wanted to be a part of it.

That said, I make every effort to keep this blog independent of my professional career.  I have even posted some very positive articles about organizations who could be considered direct competitors to Gimmal.  On the other hand, if I am aware of any information I think our readers will find useful, I am going to post it – even if it could be interpreted as showing partiality toward my employer.

GimmalSoft’s announcement earlier this week of their new partnership with Microsoft and Iron Mountain is one of those cases.  The three companies have teamed up to develop a SharePoint 2010 based solution for managing both electronic and physical records.  This solution has the potential to be a game changing development for true enterprise content and records management, allowing companies to manage all their  content across the organization more consistently and efficiently than ever before.  Here’s a link to their recent joint press release.  Check it out.
