A few weeks ago, EMC announced Captiva 7.0: EMC Transforms Enterprise Capture with Captiva 7.0. I wrote a blog post about the release describing the many new features and benefits you will find.
Over the next couple weeks, there are a couple of great opportunities to learn more about this release.
Ask the Expert (December 3rd – 7th)
This is an opportunity to discuss and learn about the new features of Captiva 7.0. We will be covering your questions on the new Captiva 7.0 features, including the Captiva Designer, Captiva Desktop and the innovative auto-learning text classification. The Event takes place between the 3rd – 7th December 2012. Get ready by bookmarking this page or signing up for email notifications.

At the Momentum User Conference in Vienna, EMC announced Captiva 7.0, a best-in-class solution for transforming paper documents, faxes and other content into digital data used by enterprise applications and processes. Captiva 7.0 is one of several new products that the EMC Information Intelligence Group announced. Here are the links to both press releases:
EMC Delivers Massive Set of Products and Solutions to Transform IT and Business Operations
EMC Transforms Enterprise Capture with Captiva 7.0
The Captiva 7.0 release provides powerful new capabilities designed for:
- Rapid configuration, customization and integration – all capture flow development and configuration is centralized within the new Captiva Designer; project developers can easily customize processes with point-and-click setup and deploy into production in seconds, rather than the hours or days required by competitive products.
- Superior accuracy – Production Auto Learning upgrades include using both image and new innovative text-based classification, that delivers 20 percent higher accuracy than rules and templates created manually by an expert.
- Enhanced operator productivity – Captiva Desktop provides the operator with one client that can be adapted to the use and operator task, rather than operators having to utilize multiple clients to complete the work.
As you will see from the many enhancements we have made, the release simplifies the development and deployment of enterprise capture projects, and delivers superior accuracy and operator performance.

The latest Forrester Wave: Multichannel Capture is now available for download just in time for those trying to make heads or tails of all the different capture offerings in the market. Forrester confirmed what myself and others have been saying for the past several years: that capture has extended beyond the single dimension of paper scanning in one or two primary locations to become the multichannel, distributed on-ramp for acquiring information. Forrester goes on to say in the report that in the next five years, capture will incorporate advanced analytics, mobile solutions, business process management (BPM) and case management, and stronger integration with enterprise production platforms. I couldn’t agree more.
You may think capture and document imaging is old technology, and in many ways it is. The process of scanning and turning a piece of paper into a digital format so that it can be indexed and stored in a repository is not a new concept. However, there is still a lot of paper coming into businesses and the basic requirement for digitizing and storing paper electronically is still one of the key drivers for investing in capture.

EMC recently participated in sponsoring an AIIM survey report titled “Process Evolution: moving your business from paper to PCs to tablets”. In the report, it surveyed individual members of the AIIM Commnunity, focusing the questions around where companies are in terms of moving processes to a paper-free environment. There are several technology factors that are exploding right now – social, mobile, governance. and the cloud that are certainly impacting how businesses look at the future of automation in their organization.

I finished up a Webcast recently (March 6th) titled “Build Scanning into Web-based Business Application“, and we had a tremendous turnout for this Webcast and over 30 questions were asked.
So you are probably thinking, scanning is not new so why would this Webcast draw such a large crowd? Isn’t document scanning something we already perfected and isn’t it becoming used less often? The fact is paper is still an inherent part of how we do business today. It’s generated in all different ways and places, and is captured in many ways – fax, email, scanners, MFDs, and mobile devices (camera). Still, the one primary input source for how paper is transformed into digital content is still by way of using a scanner. (more…)

With 2011 coming to an end, I thought I’d go back and do a quick review of the top 5 most popular blog postings from 2011.
#1 EMC Documentum Mobile Brings Enterprise Content to the Apple iPad
It is not surprising this was the #1 read blog posting in 2011. I just made the switch from a Blackberry to an iPhone two weeks ago, and I can see why people love all the apps. There is an app for just about everything, and being able to access and act on your enterprise business content is no exception. My old Blackberry was great for email, calendaring, and browsing the Web, but the apps is where businesses are going to benefit.
In August 2011, EMC released Documenutm Mobile for the Apple iPad extending the power of enterprise content management to the Apple iPad enabling users to act on information faster than ever. EMC Documentum Mobile is now available in the Apple App Store, and users of Documentum can take advantage of it today.

I was in Long Beach last week at an EMC luncheon where I presented on how organizations can get more out of SharePoint. A good percentage of the people who attended stated that they are using SharePoint today in some way, which should not come as a surprise.
Consider these interesting data points:
- 71% of organizations are committed or will consider SharePoint for their business (source: IDC 2009)
- 67% of those responding to an AIIM survey stated they needed to either customize or buy third-party products to allow SharePoint to meet their needs (source: AIIM Market Intelligence Report on SharePoint 2010)
The SharePoint customer journey can be looked at in three phases – initial deployment, broad adoption, and business solutions. While standing up a SharePoint site (or a collection of sites) and allowing people to add content and collaborate sounds like a good plan, you need to have a well-defined plan that covers the users, processes, and the technologies needed to ensure success.
At the EMC luncheon I talked about four key ways you can get more from your SharePoint investment while setting yourself up for success. I’ve summarized those four key topics below.

EMC has an upcoming event that you won’t want to miss – “Capture in the Cloud”. Click here to register on EMC.com.
What you can you expect to learn
We’ll discuss the emergence of cloud-based applications, their benefits, and how you can take advantage of this new type of technology. You will also get a first look at the new EMC Captiva OnDemand (see my recent posting: EMC OnDemand Brings Captiva, Documentum, and Document Sciences to the Cloud). We’ll discuss how the new EMC OnDemand deployment model puts the full Captiva intelligent enterprise capture capabilities in the cloud, dramatically reducing up front and ongoing costs.
I’m sure many are being asked by their IT management to investigate ways to move applications into the cloud – public, private, or a hybrid cloud approach. If so, this Webcast will give you insight into:
- Why cloud-based applications are growing so rapidly
- How you can benefit from Captiva OnDemand – whether you’re an existing Captiva customer or not
- How to simplify and speed deployment with EMC experts who can get you up and running immediately
We look forward to seeing you at this online event!

Last week I posted a write-up on how document capture helps agencies respond to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Because FOIA requests continue to be paper intensive and requires searching for paper documents to satisfy a request, many agencies are making investments into document imaging for the purpose of turning paper into electronic information that can be quickly searched on, accessed, and delivered to the requestor electronically rather than through the mailing of paper documents.
How you turn paper into electronic information is the basis of what the goal is. But let’s not forget one key requirement which is how you will handle the redaction of sensitive data before sending those digital document images out.
