Data Extraction

Big Data is Getting Bigger. Extracting Data from Your Documents May be Your Biggest Roadblock to Digital Transformation and Process Automation.

When it comes to data and documents, the universe of information has exploded, far faster and becoming much bigger than many realize.

Until 2003, humankind generated a TOTAL of five exabytes of data — equal to one billion gigabytes. That is the equivalent of ALL the words EVER spoken by any human being (stored as a txt file).

Today, we produce five exabytes of data every TWO days.

Where is all of this data coming from?

The majority of it is it is unstructured content — audio and video files, Word documents, PDFs, presentations and images that cannot be efficiently managed using structured data systems like enterprise resource management systems.

Going from Big Data to Big Process Improvements

Big data companies specialize in transforming client data into knowledge that can better inform their business decisions and streamline their business processes. To get there, most companies need a better way to organize, manage and distill information out of a wide variety of documents and content that lacks a common structure.

For most organizations, one of the biggest challenges is extracting data from paper documents, which contains an enourmous amount of unstructed content — without human intervention.

That’s where intelligent data extraction solutions, designed to identify actionable data from unstructured content like invoices, sales orders, bills of lading and just about anything else you can think of, come into play.

How Artsyl Can Help

Partnering with Artsyl allows you to:

  • Quickly transform your existing data and documents into intelligence to drive strategy. Our docAlpha Digital Transformation Platform delivers more accurate data, more quickly at a much lower cost.
  • Ensure data quality through automatic validation. Part of the process of extracting data from documents includes comparing that data against existing records within business systems like ERP or ECM software. This results in fewer errors and eliminates duplicate documents and transactions.
  • Grow your business while cutting costs by automating manual processes like AP invoice approvals, sales order processing, check remittances and more. Once you’ve extracted data from your unstructured content and validated it, you can USE that data to automate other tasks like routing/approval.
