This past week Dropbox made its second acquisition of 2022 when it bought forms vendor FormSwift. A few weeks earlier, it bought Boxcryptor, as its name suggests, a security/encryption vendor.
Hyland took the plunge this year to return to an in-person (Nashville, TN) customer event. That decision was not an easy one to make. Many other tech firms have been struggling with the same decision-making process in the wake of the pandemic. But thankfully, it worked out well, and Community Live was well attended. So …
It’s hard to believe that I founded Deep Analysis five years ago (almost to the day). It’s hard to believe we made it this far and that we are looking forward to the next five. But maybe what is hardest to grasp is just how much our industry has changed over these past few years. …
At Deep Analysis, we undertake technical and market due diligence for Private Equity, Investment Banks, and Vendors looking to acquire. Hence we keep a close eye on what is happening in the broader Information Management and Enterprise Automation market.

We will be exploring many of these over the coming months, and we very much welcome any feedback (as long as it’s polite!).
We thought it about time that we took a good look at Google Document AI; the household names foray into the world of Document Capture. Call it Cognitive Capture, Capture 2.0, or Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), this once sedate and glacially moving sector has taken off in the past few years at a rate that …
analyst notes we published at Deep Analysis in 2021? There are 89 in total! As the writers of this research, we have our personal favorites, but we thought it would be fun to just pull the numbers and see what were your favorites – remember our research is open source so anyone can access it from anywhere. That said I would never have guessed the following would have been the most popular reports of 2021 in a million years 🙂
TWAIN Direct’s ultimate goal is connecting devices directly to the software app, completely removing the PC from the middle.
