Enterprise Search is the totality of all software for searching for information within an enterprise. It allows you to forget that there is a multitude of content management systems, orchestrated together to handle the inbound information. As long as you are entitled to access a piece of information, it should not matter which business line or which content management system it comes from.
In the previous blog, we celebrated Ethias, one of the largest insurance companies in Belgium, that had reached the milestone of 100 million documents managed in the Alfresco Digital Business Platform. Reaching this milestone in our customer’s environment reaffirms our commitment to continuous re-evaluations of the system to look for optimisations to current or future scalability limitations.
Last month, Ethias, one of the largest insurance companies in Belgium, had reached the milestone of 100 million documents managed in the Alfresco Digital Business Platform. Reaching this milestone in our customer’s environment reaffirms our commitment to continuous re-evaluations of the system to look for optimisations to current or future scalability limitations.
Digital Signatures have become the new normal however, there are still many misconceptions about them. Does a digital signature have the same legal value as written signatures? What is the importance of identification in a signature session? Does the end user always have to download software when signing documents digitally?
Customer communications are fundamental to organisations of all sizes. They provide a critical means of communicating money owed, account history, case updates, policy details, and many other kinds of marketing and transactional detail to consumers.
Nowadays modern businesses are leveraging machine learning (ML) based solutions to help automate operations and making the whole process of document management faster and more effective.
The latest systems are incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) to “read” documents like a human, to identify and classify the type of document and extract key data. Such systems can efficiently, accurately convert the varied content those sources contain into standard data types, scanning for relevant information and feeding that information into common data stores.
Monitoring is the key to a healthy Alfresco Platform installation. Metrics give insight into how the application is behaving and make it possible to react quickly when something is not right. At this moment an enormous amount of monitoring systems is available, each one with its own concepts and usage. Furthermore, there is not one of these monitoring systems which is 'the best', they all have their perks and cons.
As a result, different companies way too often need to start building their Alfresco monitoring stack from scratch, simply because there is no integration available for their preferred monitoring system.
