Rapid Adoption Supported by Record Participation in Colligo Networks’ Webinar

Vancouver, BC, June 9, 2011 – The growing interest in SharePoint 2010 as a platform for records management in large enterprises was confirmed last week with Colligo Networks’ record-setting webinar, “Unleashing SharePoint 2010 for Records Management, Governance and Compliance.” Nearly 3000 SharePoint professionals participated in the event, the largest number for any SharePoint webinar to date.

In the webinar, Ryan Duguid, Microsoft’s Senior Product Manager for SharePoint ECM and Compliance, explored the extensive records management (RM) capabilities of SharePoint 2010. He was joined by Art Bellis, VP Sales and Marketing, GimmalSoft, who reviewed the role of DoD 5015.2-compliance in an enterprise RM strategy, and Trevor Dyck, Director, Product Management, Colligo Networks, who explained the importance of managing corporate email as records.

  • Records management is the primary business driver for enterprises over 1000 employees that deploy SharePoint, followed by document management and collaboration.
  • Nearly half of all participants held IT/Technical positions, suggesting that records management in SharePoint is still driven by an organization’s IT department.
