IBM Datacap: “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag”

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for a while—a long while, actually—you would be amiss not to grasp the almost certain advantages of processing your ideas using AI.

IBM’s new offering, Business Automation Content Analyzer (BACA), stands to be a very big deal for IBM Datacap. BACA, also known as just Content Analyzer, is an AI-infused, content-savvy service that I believe will close the gap to between our capture platforms and the discerning eye and fast fingers of human users.

IBM Datacap will always be needed to manage the work unit (batches), staff, security, exception handling, and final disposition (both of the data and documents). However, I think the days of fingerprinting, pattern matching, or impressively intricate location rulesets are sunsetting. Like barcode coversheets, their days are numbered.

IBM Datacap v9.1.6 provides the avenue to finally lift and shift traditional PageID and Profiler tasks over, consume the magical results, and move on. Feed it your image or even a PDF, and with a few clicks, teach it what it is and what data you want from it…poof! No zones, no anchors, no FP databases to manage, no more sweating image enhancements and DPI settings. Finally!
