With this blog post we want to announce that Document Information Extraction has new features, as of November 9th, 2022, one of which is OCR-only Schema. Stay here to read more about this feature or jump to this blogpost to find out more about the further features of this feature release.

OCR-only Schema

The new feature OCR-only Schema is here to serve users who wish to get the OCR output only, from Document Information Extraction, and as quickly as possible. To enable that, we now provide the pre-defined schema (SAP_OCROnly_schema). This allows users to request the OCR output.

 Best parts about this feature:

  • Support of use cases where the OCR-output only is required, e.g. for further custom processing in the target application.

  • Access to additional advantages of SAP’s OCR feature such as: deskewing, derotation, or handwriting.

  • Preparation of appropriate input for Business Entity Recognition. Business Entity Recognition is capable of detecting and highlighting any type of named entity in unstructured text. Therefore the OCR-only schema can be used to extract text from different types of documents to prepare the input.

All in all SAP_OCROnly_schema will allow for much faster document processing time.
