Foundation Models, a technological breakthrough in AI, have ushered in a new paradigm with disruptive capabilities. The rise of applications like ChatGPT, built on these foundational models, has rapidly caught the world's attention. Particularly in the context of intelligent document processing (IDP) it allows to extend the pre-defined capabilities with emerging capabilities that have been either unforeseen or very difficult to implement.

Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the new version of our product lineup for IDP: Document Information Extraction, premium edition. It is a groundbreaking addition to our software suite that is set to revolutionize the way businesses extract valuable insights from unstructured data. With the power of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Generative AI (GenAI), the premium edition will unlock a whole new level of capabilities, enabling organizations to streamline their operations and further increase their process-related efficiency. The premium features in the new edition encompass:

Auto Extraction of Unstructured Data
Gone are the days of laborious annotation and template creation. The premium edition will offer a schema-based extraction of unstructured data by leveraging the unprecedented capabilities of LLMs. With a simple description of required fields, the solution will automatically extract and organize data, eliminating the need for manual intervention and drastically reducing time-to-value.

Extended Language Support
In an increasingly interconnected world, language barriers should never hinder adoption. That's why we will introduce extended language support for over 40 languages. Businesses will be able to effortlessly extract information from documents written in different languages, enabling faster go-to-market strategies, and expanding global coverage of their IDP functions.

Extensions of SAP Standard Schemas (roadmap outlook 2024)
To cater to the diverse needs of our customers, the premium edition will extend the support for SAP Standard Schemas. This enhancement will allow for a seamless integration with SAP systems and their data models, providing quick extensibility and higher business value.

Immediate Improvement (roadmap outlook 2024)
The premium edition will also come with immediate improvements in accuracy based on feedback data from users. By harnessing the power of LLMs and GenAI, the solution will ensure better accuracy in data extraction, minimizing errors and maximizing the reliability of extracted information. This will lead to higher automation rates and hence, greater operational efficiency and productivity.

The benefits of Document Information Extraction, premium edition are far-reaching. By drastically reducing time-to-value, businesses will be able to quickly extract insights from unstructured data.
