The big challenge of Small Data

By Benjamin Peterson

We're getting used to dealing with Big Data in our organizations. It has its challenges -- Big Data can be too big to ship around easily, too big to back up, too big to aggregate with traditional tools, too big to join quickly to the metadata we'd like to use. But on the other hand, since it's big and important, you usually know where it is. A typical Big Data item in my sector, banking, might consist of a year's worth of end-of-day risk measures under various scenarios, and it might have a life cycle roughly like this:

ABBYY has announced a series of innovations to ABBYY FlexiCapture, its AI-enabled enterprise platform to automate document processing workflows and convert unstructured content into structured data.

Enterprise organizations continue to push the boundaries in search of technologies that can understand and liberate meaning from unstructured content – documents, email communications, images, and text – given content is central to all business processes and activities.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) leader Blue Prism is Introducing intelligent document processing capability to its RPA suite with the Beta launch of Blue Prism Decipher.

Sky Discovery, in partnership with Hillogic, an Australian based I.T software development company, have launched an industry first PDF agent for Relativity that allows PDFing documents for discovery on the fly. Australian federal and state practice notes default to exchanging in a PDF format.  This unique solution will automatically convert documents to PDF as they are tagged as discoverable and stamps them in accordance with the practice notes.

ActivePDF has announced the release of Xtractor 9.1.0, its PDF data extraction tool, adding new functionality and an overall improved user experience. Xtractor, a robust .NET API that quickly and accurately extracts targeted data within PDF files, has been reengineered from the ground up based upon direct user feedback.

Recently I attended a business networking event and, as you’d expect, the question “So what do you do?” was asked. I gave much the same answer as I’ve given hundreds of times before in that situation and my elevator pitch included the words, ‘business process automation’ (BPA). 

Kofax has announced ControlSuite, a new print and capture software solution that simplifies and enables the central management and governance of content flowing through multi-function printer (MFP) fleets, mobile & desktop devices, email, and print streams.

The robots are coming! The robots are coming! At least that’s the impression you might get from all of the conversations around robotic process automation (RPA) so commonly heard these days by software vendors and analyst firms.
