1 Introduction

This chapter provides a general introduction to Oracle WebCenter Forms Recognition.

Oracle WebCenter Forms Recognition is a learning-based solution that uses intelligent data capture capabilities to recognize, categorize, and extract information from documents. WebCenter Forms Recognition automatically extracts metadata values needed for workflow routing from document images, along with header level and line item data and validates the metadata against a database (such as a line of business application's database) to confirm accuracy.

Together with WebCenter Enterprise Capture and WebCenter Content: Imaging capabilities, WebCenter Forms Recognition facilitates processing large volumes of business documents to automate data extraction and minimize the need for human intervention.
