Smart Capture is not Text Analytics

(0)
July 14, 2016

One of the things that got me going again about Text Analytics was the claim by many vendors at the AIIM Conference 2016 that they support Text Analytics.  Most didn’t and here’s why. Zonal OCR and Smart Capture are Not Text Analytics In automated indexing of captured (or imaged) documents, there are two options Zonal… Read More ›

Can Text Analytics coexist with Information Governance?

The Text Analytics/ Predictive Analytics World conferences this month were eye opening.  I felt that I was standing on the edge of an abyss and trying hard to both look down but not fall in.  While predictive analytics is huge, especially in social media, text analytics is still looking for its opportunity.  At the vendor… Read More ›

YES! Content Management leads to Robots

When I attended Text Analytics World last week, one of my biggest surprises was that Enterprise Content Management can lead to a robot!  Stay with me here.  Text analytic functionality helps some robotic systems work and think.  I was introduced to two rather interesting pieces of technology.  The first you already know but with a… Read More ›

ECM Take Away from Text Analytics World

Coming out of the April 2016 AIIM conference, I’ve had a renewed interested in text analytics.  There were a few sessions and a growing interest in text analytics.  It seemed that Information Professionals were being asked by their managers for examples to find value in their content repositories.  Unfortunately there were no use cases to… Read More ›

Searching for Use Case for Text Analytics in ECM

When someone at April’s AIIM16’s Industry Insights 2020 Expert Panel said, “We’ve been talking about text analytics for 20 years,”  I wanted to jump up and yell, “So when are you vendors going to stop talking and do something?”  At that point I decided it was time for me to take a deep look at… Read More ›

Is Enterprise Content Management Done?

CMS Wire reported last week, “The way Rohit Ghai puts it, EMC Documentum is done … fully evolved, so to speak.  ‘No one is asking for more features or functions, he said.’” I wanted to ask, if no one’s asking for more features or functions, are you asking the right questions?  I will absolutely agree… Read More ›

Venture Investments in Content Analytics

To me Content Analytics has always been an intriguing field. When I saw what data mining could do with reporting on metadata stored within their vast databases, I was impressed. Being a believer of the 80% unstructured to 20% structured data in an enterprise, I saw the real power to be if someone could look… Read More ›

Taking Time to Explore SambaCloud

We’ve all been there, in a rush to get from point “A” to point “B” we end up missing the stops along the way.  That’s the way I feel after first taking a look at Razmik Abnous and Ian Howells’ new start-up SambaCloud.  My first cursory quick glance really did not show me what they… Read More ›

Oracle Is Buying Endeca – Because It Wants To

Another acquisition in the search space generating noise as Oracle snaps up Endeca. As far back as 2008 I had written about Endeca and the potential for acquisition.  What amuses me most about this event is how quickly people assume this must be in response to the HP/Autonomy deal. After all – big search vendor… Read More ›

Watson, Go Away. We don’t need you.

If there’s one thing I hate more than “Barney” press releases, it’s technology PR stunts. Most recently to the top of my list is IBM’s Watson.  I’ve heard about Watson’s capabilities and possibilities from so many different people both inside and outside technology.  Each not realizing what it is, a technology daredevil.  I remember TV’s… Read More ›
