Business empowerment through enterprise captureIn today’s economic climate, every enterprise is challenged to increase the velocity of its business processes while operating in the most efficient manner possible. For the IT department, this means helping the business to grow revenue, increase cash flow, lower costs and improve customer service. IT is also called upon to streamline its operations through initiatives such as consolidating infrastructure and standardizing services.

Enterprise capture, which makes unstructured information understandable for input to business processes, is an emerging solution that addresses both challenges. It is estimated that 15 petabytes of new information are generated every day, a significant portion of which originates on paper, and some 80 percent of this information growth is unstructured data. Enterprise capture helps organizations leverage this information for better business results and more efficient operations.

Enterprise capture speeds the processing of unstructured information that arrives in media such as paper, email, fax, PDF and XML. By automatically grouping, understanding and extracting business- critical information from insurance claims, invoices, loan applications, tax returns, shipping manifests, sales orders and other transactional documents, enterprise capture can feed data to back-end systems at electronic speeds. This is far superior to labor intensive, costly and error prone processes for managing paper documents. And by consolidating multiple capture solutions into a single enterprise standard, enterprise capture can reduce the costs of managing infrastructure and vendors. In addition, capture can be integral to strategies for enterprise content management (ECM) and business process management (BPM).

The landscape of enterprise capture vendors has been changed in recent months by IBM’s acquisition of Datacap, an ISV whose Taskmaster Capture solution is targeting a leadership position in enterprise capture. With the addition of this product to its line of content management solutions, IBM positions itself as a single-vendor provider of enterprise capture and ECM.
