to value

By using SharePoint as an ECM for unstructured SAP content, Gimmal Link makes it simpler to access and leverage SAP data, providing for many improvements to efficiency across the digital workplace.

  • Deliver process optimizations more quickly by providing IT with access to SAP content, data, and processes
  • Improve agility and provide increased responsiveness to constantly changing business needs
  • Leverage existing architecture, tools, and resources to gain the ability to configure solutions instead of needing to custom develop them using SAP’s BAPI protocol
  • Reduce testing and QA cycles by extracting subsets from SAP


Reduce total cost of ownership

Gimmal Link increases content availability through multiple delivery channels and improves SAP system performance by allowing you to reduce the size of the HANA database by as much as 30-40%. Leveraging Microsoft’s cost-effective Azure/Office 365 storage for documents provides significant storage cost savings.

It also reduces costs associated with training and upgrades and reduces development costs and technical debts associated with customizations. High availability, replication, distribution, and disaster recovery are available via Microsoft Cloud.
