Frequently Asked Questions


What is Adlib Software and what does it do?

Adlib Software’s Transform Platform is a document conversion and content intelligence platform that enables organizations to convert unstructured data into “documents of record” so they can manage compliance, operational, audit and regulatory risks. Adlib’s Transform Platform interoperates with content management systems to retrieve documents across multiple formats and implement business rules to create documents of record in PDF format and deliver them back to content management applications. This results in readable-searchable Enterprise Document Repositories that comprise “documents of record” and “critical data elements” that than can be extracted from such repositories.

What are the main features of Adlib Software?

Adlib Software’s Transform Platform implements:

  • Native Document Ingestion, including Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Business Rules to create Documents of Record
  • Document Security and Archival
  • Pixel perfect publishing of Documents of Record in PDF
  • Audit trail of the document transformation processed

In addition, Transform AI builds the capability to extract Critical Data Elements resident within repositories of readable-searchable PDFs for industry or client specific implementations. In addition, the Transform Platform interoperates with industry leading content management systems such as Microsoft SharePoint, Documentum, FileNet and email systems such as MS Exchange.


What types of industries benefit from using Adlib Software?

Adlib Software is ideal for industries that generate large volumes of unstructured data that has to be managed to mitigate compliance, operational, audit and regulatory risks. Major industries use that to leverage our capabilities are as follows:

  • Life Sciences, where much of the clinical trial data originates from unstructured sources and has to be managed across regulatory filings and manufacturing
  • Energy, where data on Upstream Assets (Wells) or Downstream Assets (Refineries) originates across CAD/CAM and multiple file formats and must be transformed to enable Asset Lifecycle Information Management
  • Insurance, where claims information originates across email, images and MS-Office file formats and must be managed to drive operational efficiency for Claims Processing
  • Financial Services, where account openings, signatures, and signatory changes, in Retail and Commercial Banking must be OCR’d. In addition, valuation models and investment banking agreements must be captured as “documents of record” for Corporate & Investment Banking
  • Manufacturing and Transportation, where unstructured data must be captured to have records against production and delivery
  • Government and Judiciary Agencies, that require the creation and retention of “documents of record” to meet legal requirements

In addition, Adlib Software is also useful for any organization that needs to manage and analyze large amounts of data in various formats.


How does Adlib Software help organizations with compliance and governance?

Adlib software helps organizations meet compliance and governance requirements by implementing a set of business rules upon ingesting documents across several formats to deliver a “document of record”. These business rules define the creation of a custom header-footer, watermarks and the auto-generation of a table of contents, besides combining multiple formats into a single readable-searchable PDF. The result is an audit ready document that meets compliance and governance requirements. In addition, Adlib Software’s Transform Platform also implements document security and archival features when rendering documents of record to be in compliance with such policies resident within an organization. Finally, it also provides audit trails and reporting capabilities to help organizations track and monitor document activity.

What is unstructured data?

Information that falls neatly into rows and columns that can be sorted, like a spreadsheet, is considered structured data. It can be easily accessed and modified. On the other hand, unstructured data emanates across:

  • CAD/CAM Drawings
  • an Excel spreadsheet with multiple tabs
  • a word document with embedded images
  • Images from faxes or phones
  • emails with Word, Excel, PowerPoint attachments
  • PDFs
  • paper.

These are all examples of unstructured data because values within this information are difficult to search and extract without the correct tools. Read our blog to understand what unstructured data is costing you.
