Digital Leaders Tackle Information Chaos at Its Origins

Capture and Imaging  |  Intelligent Information Management (IIM)

In a recent AIIM Industry Watch survey - State of Intelligent Information Management: Getting Ahead of the Digital Transformation Curve - I asked this question: “Agree or Disagree: Digitizing and standardizing business inputs is one of the key bottlenecks for Digital Transformation.” The results are clear: Information chaos needs to be tackled at its origins.

Tackling information chaos at its origins

Given the critical and strategic importance of information capture, we recently surveyed over 100 “capture leaders” -- organizations with a rich history of information and document capture -- to get a better handle on key business drivers influencing information capture decisions, best practices, and some of the key challenges facing organizations.

Three big themes emerged for me in looking through the survey data:

  • Leaders push the envelope on automation and machine learning.
  • Leaders are agnostic in their technology choices when it comes to handling paper-based and digital information.
  • Leaders “connect the dots” between document-based data quality and authenticity and their RPA initiatives.

We discussed these findings in greater detail on a recent webinar titled "We Asked Capture Leaders About Their Projects." You can check it out for free here.
