HILLIARD, Ohio, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IDEAL Group Apps4Android today announced the release of "Document Knowledge Miner," an Android application that enables individuals with print disabilities to acquire knowledge from digital documents, even if the documents were not designed with accessibility in mind.

According to Steve Jacobs, CEO of Apps4Android, "Knowledge is a right, not a privilege. It is the premise of progress in every society, in every family, for every child in every corner of the world; and we are thrilled to be pioneering new technologies that help level the knowledge-acquisition playing field automatically."

The app was developed with support from the App Factory, a project of the Wireless RERC, through funding by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), a component of the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services. App Factory Director Jim Mueller said, "We chose to support Document Knowledge Miner because of its unique potential to increase the usefulness and usability of mobile wireless technologies for people of all ages and abilities."

In addition to the app itself, computer-based access to IDEAL Group's Knowledge-Discovery services enables users to submit digital content to services that automatically:

  • Extract and present concept words in alphabetical order and/or ranked by importance;
  • Generate summaries based upon user-selected concept words;
  • Generate interactive, mind maps, knowledge maps, and other visualizations, from each user-selected concept word;
  • Provide files suitable for importing into powerful third-party applications for further manipulation, analysis, and learning.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
In today's enterprise, digital transformation represents organizational change even more so than technology change, as customer preferences and behavior drive end-to-end transformation across lines of business as well as IT. To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
