For decades, VR has been a dream for video gamers. Despite infamous disappointments like Nintendo’s Virtual Boy, the goal of creating fully-realized VR experiences for immersive gameplay has remained. After countless iterations of vaporware, VR is finally becoming a reality.

Free software and affordable VR headsets present an opportunity for relatively low-cost investment for new developers.

CIP Spotlight: Devon McCollum is Serious About the Information Industry

Oct 16, 2018 11:23:00 AM by Jesse Wilkins

Why choose certification? For me, it's about proof (to myself and to employers) of my expertise. The Certified Information Professional (CIP) started with a group of industry experts and focus groups that worked together to define the body of knowledge necessary for information professionals to be successful in the digital economy. From there, AIIM worked to build a certification exam based upon this body of knowledge - and the CIP was born. Fast forward to present day and the list of CIPs is growing daily and from all over the globe.

I had a chance to sit down with one of our CIPs, Devon McCollum, Corporate Records and Information Manager for Members 1st Federal Credit Union. I wanted to pick his brain to see what advice and tips he had for others considering certification.

Identifying E-signature Requirements to Accelerate Digital Adoption and Meet Global Compliance

Oct 15, 2018 9:00:00 AM by Joerg Lenz

Eighteen years after US ESIGN Act and 21 years after the world’s first laws on electronic signatures went into force in Germany and Singapore the benefits of e-signatures are widely understood and many organizations rolled out e-signature to some extent. However, users are reporting mixed experience with some of these solutions: some are not providing a compelling user experience; some have not been designed to support omni-channel strategies; some have found a lack in workflow orchestration, deployment options, or integration capabilities; and some have found that the solutions were not designed to meet global compliance requirements. Today, many e-signature implementations are in a silo stage.

In a recent AIIM webinar, Craig Le Clair, Forrester VP and Principle Analyst, and Florian Vondal, Allianz Solution Architect, took a closer look at the “esign of the times” and what must be considered when attempting to accelerate e-signature adoption enterprise-wide and meet global compliance.

Some key take ways:

[Podcast] Artificial Intelligence Training for Information Professionals

Oct 10, 2018 11:00:00 AM by Sean McGauley

For me, "Artificial Intelligence" used to conjure up images of the latest Sci-Fi movie or things like the talking car KITT from the 80's TV show Knight Rider. It wasn't until fairly recently that I began to see this shift from Sci-Fi movie topic to business value.

Can Machine Learning Defeat the Venerable Structured Template?

Oct 9, 2018 10:30:00 AM by Greg Council

The venerable template allows structured form data to be accurately extracted. In the document capture industry, the concept of templates where you specify the location of each data element is a tried-and-true strategy for structured forms. If the form is standardized, giving the software the precise place to look for data will almost always result in better performance over alternatives such as rules-based approaches using keywords or patterns. Even with unstructured data such as on invoices, we find that many organizations have opted for a template approach after finding that more flexible, rules-based approaches fall short. The result is a tremendous amount of upfront effort and a lot of maintenance.
