Cloud computing a technology and infrastructure solution that has transformed the storage, networking and enterprises technology demand. Though most of the industry expert still believes that the cloud technology is still in its nascent stage and as the cloud technology inducts more security and networking tech we would see cloud technology primarily transforming the technology foundation. Almost a decade ago no one could have predicted that the huge impact of cloud computing is currently having on the enterprises overall business. The fast rise in the amount of IT spending on a cloud during the past five years proves this statement, according to IDC the cloud service is set to reach $210 Billion by the end of this year. The demand for improved operational efficiency to counter the increased stress on the enterprise’s revenue, the exponential growth of data and globalization all contribute towards the need of cloud computing a business application that will last. Application deployment has become more unified with the deployment of cloud infrastructure solutions.

The recent research by Forrester in Predications 2019: Cloud Computing asserted that the only feasible approach towards the enterprises could take to modernize the core business operations and maintain the competitive advantage using the cloud strategy or develop the combination of cloud and on-premise environment. Enterprises in the process of implementing a digital environment, it’s reported that cloud strategy will assist the digital transformation initiative and account for 63 percent of all the instances for the enterprise public cloud adoption. There are lots of functions that are being shifted to the cloud environment, but one thing that is going to stand out is document capture. Enterprises should examine the document capture procedure as each business today has to deal with it at a certain level.  Today we would highlight steps using which enterprises should look for moving toward the cloud-based data capture model.

Adopting Based on the Requirement

Installation is one of the first steps when the IT admin considers adopting the new digital transformation project. However, for many IT admins, the major challenge is with the timeline for such application implementation. Before we adopt the new solutions for the end user community, the IT admins have to plan the application on board including the server acquisition and configuration, software installation and project customization. The third-party data capture application provider eliminates several of the implementation steps thus accelerating the process of adoption. It eliminates the processing time for the technology, planning process; sever requisition and hardware updates that can improve any of the digital transformation projects. Many of the IT admin those have adopted the cloud-based solutions will minimize the implementation time to value needed time slot.


Scalability and Cost of Adoption

Serverless architecture can improve your scalability with the required cost. Most of the enterprises have a dynamic requirement that can change according to the business requirements and classification. Many enterprises today need dynamic solutions that can reduce their costs as the demand is low and increase the cost if the business is high. With an on-premise capture solution the server architecture would need to support the higher volume in demand increased months and support low volume in decreased demand month, this means the legacy server is utilized based on the dynamic requirements. The leads to increased costs and inefficient server solution, cloud storage solutions provide an attractive option with an attractive option for organizations. It eliminates the investment in hardware and associated financial support that is required; cloud-based solutions can scale to accommodate any requirement based application.      


During the journey of digital transformation, content capture can rarely be included as the only element that can lead the digital transformation initiative. An enterprise needs more than a handful of products and services that automate the organization initiatives by improving the process flow of solutions, document management system and many more can be added based on the document solution. If the enterprise is having the document capture as a component of microservices, it will allow the plug and play modular approach to larger digital transformation projects. Microservices are the individual applications in the cloud that can be accessed through different cloud variants to create a larger application for digital transformation. Microservices can assist in developing various functionalities that can be assigned through various applications; each functionality will be using the server space based on the required microservices. 

No-Storage or No-Computing Barriers

Considering the benefits of application deployment in the cloud if compared with software-based there are currently two major reasons why enterprises should adopt the cloud-based solution option. In the traditional capture process workflow, 95 percent of the application server processing power is being spent on page processing and image text-to-text conversion. It means that the applications processing speed is only as fast as the capacity of servers on they are installed. With cloud computing- powered document capture, your image conversion processing power isn’t limited to several server cores that have been purchased and installed. Cloud offers infinite computing and storage providing the flexibility to enterprises so that they can stop the pre-project preparation calls.

Updates and Upgrades

Technology improves and so should the applications that can capture varied types of data and improve the professional applicability. Using the document capture and intelligence products, there can be many required updates like software and platform update, regular maintenance to improve the required fixes and need for required product costs. The major benefit of cloud-based capture tool is that your solution will always be updated based on the current requirements. The downtime and delay during the update will be significantly low based on the application.  


Data Capture storage solutions widely depend on the enterprise’s requirements and for many of them, the current solutions lack the required dynamic ability for improved performance. For improved data capture the cloud technology adds the ability to reduce the interference of storage solutions. With current improved Cloud storage solutions and application, reliability enterprises are moving towards better capture solutions.
