Intelligent Document Understanding

Transforming a whirlwind of data, from very different sources and formats, into valuable business knowledge

There were no worries about managing incoming e-mails, Tweets, Facebook posts, images from smartphones, SMS/text messages, or multiple other information sources that are now part of our wired, social media world.
