Written by: IDC Abner Germanow, Jonathan Edwards, Lee Doyle IDC believes the convergence of communications and mainstream IT architectures will drive significant innovation in business processes over the next decade.
All things that can be automated will be automated. Beyond the careful choreography of sophisticated workflow, managing myriad simultaneous requests puts unprecedented demand on the software that must schedule and perpetually deliver against well-defined service levels, in real time. Gone are the days of simple batch processing. Welcome to the oh-so-very-flat world that is embracing service-oriented architectures, grid architectures, expansive ecosystems, and end-to-end processing. Workload scheduling has got to grow up.
This whitepaper will review how business processes are more efficient in an electronic data environment. Enterprise Capture enables customer service improvement, cost cutting, and compliance for financial institutions such as Flagstar and Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU).
See how some retail banks have redirected their focus to a more customer -centric approach. This whitepaper includes success stories from Banco Inversis and GMAC Commercial Mortgage Corporation (now Ally Financial) which highlight how Kofax has helped them maintain and even increase their competitive edge.
The Kofax enterprise capture platform offers unmatched scalability from centralized to highly distributed environments, from individual desktops to enterprise deployments and from basic archival scanning to powerful document classification and separation and data extraction. The company's market leading technology supports a wide variety of input devices and line of business applications, providing a strong enterprise-wide platform on which to standardize document driven processes.
"Many financial services firms have automated the vast majority of key processes and customer experiences. However, the “last mile” of most transactions – completing the agreement– far too often relies on the same inefficient pen-and-paper processes of yesteryear.
Digitising agreements using DocuSign lets you keep processes digital from end to end. Completing transactions no longer requires documents to be printed and shipped, and re-keyed on the back end.
Read the whitepaper to learn how leading financial services organisations use straight-through processing by automating the last mile of business transactions to:
- Speed processes by 80% or more, often going from days or weeks to just minutes
- Reduce NIGO by anywhere from 55% to 93%
- Achieve a 300% average ROI "
IT groups must support many applications and servers across multiple platforms that frequently operate independently of each other. However, coordinating job scheduling across all these applications and networks is often required to optimize resource utilization. The traditional approach of applying more staff, toolkits, and rudimentary scheduling software to cobble together automated batch processing solutions becomes cost-prohibitive, inefficient, and error-prone, as the number of moving parts increases and the environment becomes more heterogeneous.
Staples’ information systems play a critical role in delivering on their brand promise 'that was easy.' As part of a recent strategic imperative, Staples recently embarked on a major modernization of its systems architecture and supporting processes. The goal was to ensure IT’s systems could scale with the company’s continued global expansion without sacrificing the quality of the brand experience. One critical target for modernization was Staples’ enterprise job scheduling processes and systems. After researching the top software providers in this space, Staples selected Tidal Software to support its efforts to centralize and streamline automated batch processing.
Business performance depends on how well a company manages its internal processes. Companies with effective business process management in place are able to analyze key performance indicators to monitor efficiency of day-to-day activities and employees against operational targets.

Imagine getting into your car and saying, “Take me to work,” and then enjoying an automated
drive as you read the morning news. We are getting very close to that kind of
scenario, and companies like Ford expect to have production vehicles in the latter part
Driverless cars are just one popular example of machine learning. It’s also used in
countless applications such as predicting fraud, identifying terrorists, recommending
the right products to customers at the right time, and correctly identifying medical
symptoms to prescribe appropriate treatments.
The concept of machine learning has been around for decades. What’s new is that
it can now be applied to huge quantities of data. Cheaper data storage, distributed
processing, more powerful computers and new analytical opportunities have dramatically
increased interest in machine learning systems. Other reasons for the increased
momentum include: maturing capabilities with methods and algorithms refactored to
run in memory; the
