SAP is a powerful, data and process driven application with premium per user costs and a steep learning curve. SharePoint and Office 365, on the other hand, are low-cost solutions with the widest adoption of any ECM platform, providing a rich user experience with a familiar Microsoft Office look and feel.
Gimmal Workplace for SAP puts critical business information where people work, allowing users inside and outside of SAP to collaborate on document-centric processes. It transforms SharePoint and SAP into a unified enterprise information platform while saving you time and money.
