Hyland Updates Document Processing Platform

April 8, 2020

Remember ISYS, the Australian search system? DarkCyber does. Hyland owns the technology. In a series of updates over the last six months, content-services provider Hyland Software has added file formats, capabilities, and support to its Document Filters platform, we learn from the press release posted by ProgrammableWeb, “Hyland Document Processing Update Includes New APIs.” The company aims to provide tools that allow its clients to process any type of file an organization may encounter in a typical day. Over 550 file formats are now supported. The write-up lists the new features:

  • Text and metadata support for Apple iBook file types, Apple PList binary files, EPUB ebook file types, and Quattro Pro Spreadsheet files
  • High definition support for NCR images, MS Project Gantt Charts, Microsoft Windows Clipboard (CLP) files, Microsoft Outlook for Mac OLK15MsgSource files, Paint Shop Pro images, Windows Cursor images, X-Windows-Bitmap images, X-Windows-Pixmap images, and WordPerfect Graphics (version 1)
  • New API for extraction and processing of hierarchical bookmark information
  • New API for the extraction and processing of static PDF form data
  • Added option, DETECT_MACROS, that outputs a metadata value if macros are detected in MS Office documents
  • New API to allow for adding common annotations such as notes, lines, shapes, polygons, and stamps. *When added to PDF output, annotations are created as native PDF annotations, that a user can interact with and modify
  • New API to allow the control of graphic effects on a per page basis
  • New option, GRAPHIC_ROTATE, to allow the rotation of an entire document rendition, or individual pages via the new graphic effects API
  • Added support for mark-up and drawing functions onto an HTML5 canvas

With clients in several different industries, Hyland helps them leverage their data to better serve their own customers. It boasts that over half of 2019’s Fortune 100 companies use its products. Founded in 1991, the firm is based in Westlake, Ohio. How many years has ISYS been available? Good question, and DarkCyber knows the answer. If you said a number less than 30, you might be on a walkabout.
