Newgen Software, a global provider of low code digital automation platform for managing content, processes, and communication, announced it has launched an enhanced version of its document classification service for enabling the high-volume document-handling environment. Intelligent Document Classifier 1.0 allows users to gain hidden insights by classifying documents, based on structural features and/or textual features.

- Image Classification – Allows users to automatically classify images using neural networks and deep learning algorithms based on structural features
- Content Classification – Enables document classification based on content, in the absence of structural features
- Trainable Machine Learning – Auto-learns definitions and features of a document class and creates a trained model
- Admin Dashboard – Generates analytics reports for a 360-degree view of the process
- Integration Capabilities – Facilitates easy integration with core business applications, content management platforms, and document capture applications
Amazon Web Services and Slack Technologies announced a new multi-year agreement to deliver solutions for enterprise workforce collaboration. Slack and AWS will strategically partner to help distributed development teams communicate and become more efficient and agile in managing their AWS resources from inside Slack. Slack will migrate its Slack Calls capability for all voice and video calling to Amazon Chime, AWS’s communications service that lets users meet, chat, and place business calls. Slack is also leveraging AWS’s global infrastructure to support enterprise customers’ adoption of its platform and to offer them data residency – the ability to choose which country or region their data is stored at rest in while fulfilling compliance requirements. Slack continues to rely on AWS as its preferred cloud provider and will use a range of AWS services, including storage, compute, database, security, analytics, and machine learning, to develop new collaboration features. Additionally, AWS has agreed to use Slack to simplify the way teams at AWS communicate and work together.
Slack and AWS will also extend product integration and deepen interoperability. These integrations include:
- Amazon Chime infrastructure with Slack Calls
- AWS Key Management Service with Slack Enterprise Key Management (EKM)
- AWS Chatbot integration with Slack
- Amazon AppFlow integration with Slack
