Olive ViewPoint Olive ViewPoint is an end-to-end electronic publishing platform. It transforms documents stored in different formats on disparate systems to a unified XMLbased digital format, allowing easy information retrieval. Users can search across document collections, individual documents, and sections within documents, and view the results through a Web browser. Viewpoint unlocks information trapped inside unstructured content and publishes it through portals or knowledge management applications.

Olive ViewPoint at a Glance Enterprise electronic publishing software that ™

Makes information available in a digestible format that reduces information overload


Builds a unified, searchable collection of documents from disparate sources


Understands unstructured documents and automatically adds structure based on content and semantics

Leverage Content in Unstructured Documents Most organizations invest heavily to produce documents, centrally manage them, and prepare them for printing or electronic distribution. In contrast, they do little to prepare their document collections to leverage the information they contain. Too often the information in content management systems remains untapped, especially in larger documents that people do not have the time to open and read. Several issues prevent users from getting the information they need: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Information is not available to users over the Web. Searches return too much information, much of which is not relevant. Unstructured documents limit users to search only for entire files. Viewing source documents often requires the original application.

Access Data in Any Document Olive ViewPoint allows information publishers to empower their customers with searchable access to any document, regardless of its original format. Typical documents include reports, catalogs, designs, engineering specifications, training materials, schematics, books, newsletters, and journals, which might be stored as unstructured PDF files, Microsoft Office documents, or scanned TIFF images.

Improve Searching with Automatic Metadata Extraction ViewPoint automatically understands the structure and semantics of documents and identifies information components within each document. Each component contains a single section on a specific topic. Olive can retrieve additional information from external sources such as databases or Web sites to annotate components with metadata. Component-based searching enables faster access to relevant content.
