Capture is the process of ingesting and processing documents and other business inputs, identifying what they are, extracting key data for business processes, and tagging them for search and retrieval in an ECM system. Many consider it the first critical step for Automation, as getting documents into a digital form is essential to any digital transformation strategy.

Capture software is critical for efficient and timely business process automation, compliance, business intelligence and analytics. While usable with structured data, it is most valuable when applied to unstructured and semi-structured incoming information from multiple sources via multiple channels. The Capture Industry consists of software solutions involving optical character recognition, imaging and intelligent document processing and RPA solutions with a focus on information Capture. The demand for Capture solutions has continued to evolve as a core component of Automation, now reaching $5 billion in worldwide revenue.

Armand Lange and the Capture User Group are delighted to announce that its Community Festival session, scheduled for Tuesday, November 16 at 11:30 AM ET, will feature a talk by Senior Analyst Petra Beck from Infosource to share the future direction for capture.
