Data management

Transform data management with AI

Data management is a business-critical priority today. Organizations rely heavily on information for everything from improving customer service and marketing effectiveness to identifying opportunities and optimizing business processes. By ensuring quality, security and accessibility of information, data management helps to achieve better business outcomes.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming data management today by eliminating inefficient, paper -related workflows and automating many routine tasks. By relying on AI-enabled technology, organizations can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of everything from recruiting and contract management to invoice processing, compliance management, records managementdata governance and lifecycle management.

The key to managing data with artificial intelligence is choosing the right information management solution. That’s why so many companies worldwide have chosen the next-generation intelligent information management platform from M-Files.

How AI makes data management more efficient

Artificial intelligence can dramatically improve efficiency, quality and security of data management practices in several ways.

Automate processes

When digitizing documents, AI-enabled systems can help to categorize and tag files to make them easier to find and identify. Some systems enforce preset rules to ensure that employees take the time to tag files as they digitize them. Superior data management technology will analyze and tag files automatically.

Accelerate business intelligence

AI-powered analytics can search for and identify patterns in large data sets to identify opportunities and threats and to spot trends and anomalies.

Make unstructured data searchable

Much of the information that businesses generate today is unstructured. Data such as documents, email, presentations, audio and video files, images and social content are all examples of unstructured data that is difficult to aggregate and analyze. AI-power data management tools can convert these unstructured files into structured data that can reveal new insights and make data more available and valuable.

Streamline creation of documents

When creating new documents, artificial intelligence can initiate and automate workflows that use templates to do much of work. AI-enabled contract management software, for example, can do much of the heavy lifting when it comes to drawing up a new contract and guiding it through the proper workflow.

Ensure security

AI-enabled systems can automatically scan documents for sensitive data and personally identifiable information and flag any potential issues. The systems can also detect unusual requests and spot malicious or inadvertent leaks that could represent a threat to data security.

Enhanced data quality

Smart document or file management systems can help to eliminate redundant files, catch data entry errors and keep documents from being misfiled.
