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:

Finding the right information quickly is an imperative function for all organizations, yet 75% of AIIM respondents said this is a challenge for them at work. One main cause is the overwhelming amount of costly legacy information systems and technologies that are difficult to modernize or connect to one another to make useful. Sound familiar?

VR Business Applications: Branding with VR

Oct 12, 2018 10:45:44 AM by Michael Volkmann

Virtual reality has a truly astounding trajectory. The VR hardware and software market has already tripled in size in only two years. In a few short years, Statista predicts that the market size for virtual reality software and hardware will expand to over $40 billion.

Only a decade ago, virtual reality seemed like a distant dream. Now it seems that VR is more than an outlet for escapism, entertainment, and media. It seems VR is poised to disrupt all sorts of business practices and even entire industries. For instance, healthcare, education, and journalism are experimenting with VR and related technologies.

5 Project Management Mistakes Agile Organizations Must Avoid

Oct 11, 2018 10:30:00 AM by Megan Harris

Agile companies are ambitious. Agile teams seek to reach new heights by employing an iterative approach.

While agile project management is an extremely popular project management framework, it’s not wholly understood. More importantly, misusing the methodology can spell disasters for teams. Agile organizations have to be careful especially when hiring promising project managers to lead a new team.

Here are 5 project management mistakes agile organizations should avoid at all costs:

[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.

Document Automation: Having Your Cake…

Oct 5, 2018 11:40:00 AM by Greg Council

Having your cake and eating it, too, is a proverb that’s almost 500 years old, which means you cannot have two incompatible things at the same time.

So many examples of situations exist where you face two mutually exclusive options. Let’s take document capture. Document capture software is designed to automate document-oriented tasks such as sorting or extracting key data. In order to achieve that automation, you must spend time to configure the software to identify documents and reliably locate and extract that data with a high enough degree of accuracy that your staff need only be involved in verifying a small percentage of it.

Four Ways the Data Scientist Has Evolved to the 21st Century

Oct 3, 2018 11:37:00 AM by Dr. Beverly Wright

In 1989, I took my first decision sciences course, and started coding in SAS at the age of 20. I greatly enjoyed pulling discoveries buried within mounds of data, although and even small datasets had many discoveries back then.

At the root of every model I’ve built, even the simplest, was a solid understanding and foundational rigor of statistical theory. When computing simple statistics or developing descriptive models, I thought through the math behind the model and how this would impact the formation, application, and interpretation.

It was about 30 years ago when I started my decision sciences journey, and I’m still applying techniques and building models to empirically solve problems, answer questions, overcome challenges that improve, reduce error, or otherwise benefit a situation.

Over the past three decades, I’ve noticed trends and shifts, an evolution of sorts, in the foundational underpinnings of development and application within this interesting profession. I’ve come to the following conclusions that illustrate the evolution of the data science function over the past few decades:
