EMC Announces Captiva 7.0

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.

Recap of EMC Event: Getting More out of Your SharePoint Investment

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.

Upcoming SharePoint Lunch Event: 4 Ways to Get More from Your Microsoft SharePoint Investment

Is your business using SharePoint today?  There is a strong possibility your organization is already using SharePoint or is planning to in the near future.

IT beware: SharePoint 2010 is a good way for collaborating and gets high marks for being easy to deploy. But IT and the business users need to be aware that there are some inherent limitations in SharePoint 2010 that need to be considered when looking at how you get your information into SharePoint, how your users are best served when accessing and using it, and finally how to assert governance around the information being stored in SharePoint. 

I’ll be presenting at an upcoming lunch event in Long Beach, CA on December 6th (details below) on the SharePoint topic, and you learn about four key ways to:

  • Speed the delivery of paper-based information and records into SharePoint
  • Provide direct access to the EMC Documentum repository from within the familiar SharePoint interface
  • Automate business processes which rely on the content and collaboration managed by SharePoint
  • Enable secure access to active and inactive SharePoint content – while supporting regulatory and corporate requirements
