The Need To Go Digital
Digital technologies are changing the face of business and administration as we know it. The constant evolution of the technology landscape and the widespread disruption that it causes means digital transformation is more relevant than ever. There is an ever-increasing pressure on businesses to remain competitive and meet customer expectations in the digital age, as well as for governments to enable transparency for its citizens. Most have already digitized at least some part of their workflows, be it through e-commerce, web- marketing efforts or the automation of repetitive tasks.
However, an area of digital transformation that remains largely under-exploited in terms of delivering added-value is data recognition and document conversion. This is often because of an inability to competently address the complexity and diversity of different documents and their contents. For example, imagine extracting data from a handwritten, unstructured document captured via a mobile device and requiring real-time processing. Highly specialized mobile software would be needed to tackle that kind of challenge.
