This week two events caught our attention in the industry a board shuffle at RPA vendor Automation Anywhere and Gimmals latest of several acquisitions. Let’s start with the smaller of the two Gimmals acquisition of Sherpa Software.
If we were to believe the industry hype, a firm like Gimmal would not be in growth mode. Instead, it would be weathering a storm of big brands like Microsoft, Box, Dropbox & Amazon essentially commoditizing their markets. In reality, though, as we have loudly proclaimed regularly in our research, information management is complicated and hard to do well, indeed in a world of more and more information and increased regulation, the challenges grow more significant by the day.
