KAOn April 25th, Kodak Alaris introduced IN2 Ecosystem, a combination of scanners, software, and services along with partnerships intended to tackle the issues surrounding information content and “data chaos”. Kodak Alaris has a long history with capture technology spanning many years and includes hardware and software products that handle a variety of applications from compact distributed devices to high-volume sophisticated production engines and solutions.

This announcement is built of key pillars vital for the imaging provider; Right Fit, Right Experience and Right Results. Right Fit looks to make the best integration into the business environment, Right Experience builds on this with simple yet powerful features and processing and the Right Results look to deliver the deserved business outcomes. The pillars are then woven together through a partner and developer community that can ensure delivery and support.

As information and content, often in the form of paper, ebb and flow within a business environment, it becomes increasingly challenging to manage. In fact, the myth of the paperless office seems to be just that…a myth. In a recent Primary Research study conducted by Keypoint Intelligence InfoTrends, we found that only 15% of respondents felt that the paperless office “Was Realistic”, in addition when asked what percentage of business content still remains on paper, the result was more than 50% of company’s data is still paper-based. Information and data chaos is apparent as businesses look to automate processes to control regulations, compliance, and security and efficiency demands.

Kodak Alaris IN2 is a packaged answer to the demands of information and content. Working with their heritage and history of image capture, and further placing a greater emphasis on an ecosystem that will include strong partnerships, Kodak Alaris’s goal with the IN2 solution is to focus in key areas that can benefit most from a combination of capture hardware, software and services delivered by strategic partners. To support the partners, Alaris will provide materials and tools to provision and educate partners in an effort to simplify and reduce complications that could arise while penetrating new solutions markets whether horizontal or vertical.

Keypoint Intelligence feels that a balanced approach when addressing information and content mismanagement is best and Kodak Alaris with the announcement of it’s IN2 Ecosystem directly reflects the real need to create linkages and integrations for a solid information solution.

For those of you that attended our SharePoint keynote panel yesterday morning, I wanted to reach out and offer the opportunity to continue the conversation. Unfortunately, we ran a little bit over the allotted time and didn’t have the chance to address audience questions (nor several of my own). So that said, feel free to e-mail me directly, or post some questions/comments under this post. I’ll follow-up with our panel and post their responses here!

Based on what we heard during the keynote, it seems SharePoint could be a real disruptor for our markets and especially important as the convergence of hardware and software (and of workgroup and enterprise solutions) comes to fruition. The Microsoft ecosystem could be an ‘in’ for hardware manufacturers, workgroup ISVs, as well as enterprise ISVs to approach end-to-end solutions in a truly process-centric manner. Read more »
