Hello. Today I’d like to show you how we can use our Microsoft Azure Blob Storage Connector to pass documents and their metadata from ABBYY Vantage to Microsoft. What you can see here is a very typical basic workflow. We have an input stage. We have an extraction stage so that we can extract information from a document. And then lastly, our connector works on the output side. So we’re actually using an external system to pass these documents to. So a pretty basic flow here. Our goal is that within Microsoft Azure, we would have the ability to hit refresh and our document, and potentially its metadata even would be accessible here at this container level in Microsoft.
So what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna go ahead and use just a basic file share. So I’m just gonna move a document here into our FTP site. That’s where the input stage that you saw within this workflow is monitoring. So this is monitoring that file share. In this case, it’s an FTP site. The software is gonna pick it up automatically from there, extract it and then output it. So if we go look at our FTP site and we just refresh, we’ll notice that that document is now gone. And eventually when we refresh here, we will see that document.
Okay, now that we’ve refreshed, you can see, I now have a document here. Now, what you probably didn’t notice is that as part of this extraction stage, the software actually does a step called classification and extraction. So it will classify the document. The fact that we’re only passing it, one document type is why we can actually bypass this classify stage. But we’re just gonna extract it and pass it over to Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. A very clean and a very enterprise friendly way to use ABBYY Vantage. I hope you enjoyed this video.
