Intelligent document processing (IDP) software is an essential component of digital transformation projects. Our report gives a comprehensive overview of market size, forecasts, vendors and buying tips.
Today, UIPath announced that it is to acquire UK-based Re:Infer, and quite frankly, it’s one of the most interesting deals of recent few years. Deep Analysis came across Re:Infer late in 2021 and subsequently met with and wrote about them earlier this year, and in that report stated that it would be a good acquisition candidate.
Technology that automates repetitive tasks and cost-cutting go hand in hand, so with a looming recession, it’s logical to expect RPA tools to do well. Overall, they are doing well, but in recent conversations with buyers, systems integrators, and resellers, things are not going as well as they should be.
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. …

And right on cue Automation Anywhere acquired process mining vendor FortressIQ just days before Christmas. FortressIQ was founded in 2017 and had completed a Series …
TWAIN Direct’s ultimate goal is connecting devices directly to the software app, completely removing the PC from the middle. That’s really important to the new wave of cloud developers; it abstracts the proprietary hardware layer and replaces all the other confusing scanner connectors. Plus it’s free to any developer.
Driven largely by the rise in popularity and similarly huge valuations of RPA (Robotic Process Automation), there is the impression that PTM and RPA technologies are tied at the hip.
