Art Bellis, Vice President, Sales and Alliances, Gimmal

“Extending and Enhancing SharePoint’s Records Capabilities”

SharePoint: Is it a Swiss Army Knife? Is it the answer for real business problems, or is it the new share drive?

Art’s presentation will look at real life cases where SharePoint is solving problems across the spectrum of compliance, governance, the cloud, and solutions integrated with line of business systems.  Art will explore where native SharePoint ends and where third party products begin to provide value.
