In today’s vast digital world, organizations are scrambling to better control information to meet legal, regulatory, and business requirements. Adding to the challenge is an increasing number of information sources, including online, email, and print. From each of these comes growing volumes of records, receipts, forms, email, and desktop documents and more, further amplifying the amount of information that is out there for companies to discover, classify, archive, and manage.
Among all of these documents and records is the continuous need for businesses to better leverage data and improve information governance. Companies need to accurately, efficiently and securely capture this intelligence to enable it to be effectively leveraged. The ‘intelligence’ within records and documents
can include everything from printed information to handwritten information and signatures—holding a wealth of knowledge for the organization.
Organizations today must leverage this information, while simultaneously balancing the need to protect it through better information governance policies. Capturing valuable, yet often times hidden, data on documents can help organizations gain a competitive advantage by increasing business performance, reducing risk and better managing costs. By accurately and automatically capturing information, organizations can route data
more quickly, store and retrieve details more effectively, and identify risk points such as unauthorized transactions.
But how does one identify and access this data? What is this information on forms and documents that many organizations are missing out on? How does locating this data fit into the greater context of information governance?
