VIDEO: Interview with Perceptive Software’s Greg Huebner


iTWire talks to Perceptive Software’s Manager of Professional Services, APAC, Greg Huebner, about the company, the challenges its customers face, what the industry will look like in the future and more.

Perceptive Software explains that it ‘builds process and content management software that closes the information gaps that exist throughout every organisation.’

The company is a division of Lexmark International, and offers ‘a complete set of process and content management software technology’.

This includes business process management, enterprise content management, intelligent data capture, enterprise and federated search and integration technology, which the company says when combined with its ‘keen understanding of your people, processes and applications’ can become ‘transformational solutions to your biggest business challenges.’

We spoke with Greg Huebner, Perceptive Software’s Manager of Professional Services, APAC, and asked him to tell us a bit about Perceptive’s history, the challenges it’s seeing from its customers and the types of customers it has, updates on acquisitions, what the industry will look like in the future and more.

Here is our interview:

Perceptive Software notes ‘the explosion of enterprise content has made it increasingly more difficult for businesses to source and intelligently capture information while ensuring accuracy and integrity.’

Pointing to how quickly ‘data is generated daily, coupled with the increased shift towards a technologically reliant workforce, this trend is only set to increase at an alarming rate’, and how ‘the sheer amount of data flowing through the enterprise can paralyse an organisation as decisions cannot be made in a timely manner, especially when data cannot be easily accessed and managed.’

The company notes that, according to a recent PwC report, ‘Australia missed out on $48 billion in economic benefits last year because of a failure to fully harness the power of data to innovate in the delivery of products and services.

'The lack of urgency from companies to master the approach of managing structured and unstructured information may result in them being left behind.’

It also notes that ‘this issue is further amplified as Australian businesses expand their businesses globally, because distributed locations and systems can make it much more difficult for information to travel from one enterprise location to another, hence leading to an information gap.

'In addition, the copious volume of data required to run a global business can create problems for employees to find the information they need in a timely, contextualised manner.’
