Since the earliest forays into optical character recognition (OCR) by Ray Kurzweil in the early 1970s, software developers have been on a mission to teach computers how to do the paperwork for us. What if the computer could replace the interminable number of hours needed each day in offices around the globe for humans to read documents, understand the meaning, and extract the right data for the next step in a work process?

Research Indicates Digital Transformation Has Stalled After we received the survey responses for the AIIM 2023 State of the Intelligent Information Management Industry Report, I spoke to the report’s authors, Dave Jones and Theresa Resek, about a concerning statistic.

This is an article about names and whether or not they matter. My first intuition was to open with the quote, “What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet,” but I thought better of it. Not because it was too cliche, which it was, but because it immediately transported me back to my sophomore year of high school, when the greatest achievement of my life up to that point was winning the role of Romeo in the drama club's production of Romeo and Juliet. Please spare me the reminder of my nerdy teenage years! Anyway, onto the matter at hand. The purpose of this article is to begin a conversation about data and content and whether or not the long-held distinction between the two is still important. I'm admitting to you upfront that I don't have the answer. Instead, I only aim to share what I know.
There are two things you should know about me. The first is that I love to eat. I have an appetite that was once described as “alarming.” In my teenage years, I would kick back and devour an entire large pizza in one sitting. As I grew older, I refined my pallet and developed a desire for quality ingredients and a craving for a variety of flavors. The second thing you should know is that I hate to cook.
