The explosion of big data has forced us to ask ourselves how we can leverage this new information to better conduct and manage business. Electronic reports are generated to support transactions (i.e. PO, Invoice, Bills, Payment Advice, etc.) or to help monitor key performance Indicators (i.e. Inventory report, Sales report, etc.) While Adobe PDF and Print Reports offer valuable information for analysts, the formats can vary considerably and offer the greatest challenges when it comes to developing a template for IDEA to read.

Scott Smith, Sales Engineer for Audimation Services, will demonstrate how to develop a template on a difficult, client-provided pdf document with embedded formatting control characters. If you have a document you have been struggling to import, email Kelly Chase to discuss using your file as an import example during the meeting.

1:05 – 1:15 – Q & A related to Importing
