“The ability to save compound documents blurs the definition of “pages”, which is sometimes confusing for knowledge workers.”
The ILINX product suite, as well as most content management systems, saves content in batches. A batch can contain one or more documents and a document can contain one or more pages.
“This made complete sense when we we’re all saving only TIFF images.”
ILINX has the ability to store diverse file types in a single compound document. This includes standard image file formats along with virtually any type of electronic document, such as Microsoft ® Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Text, Video, audio, web content, etc. What used to be pages in a document may now include, as an example, a single page TIFF, a Word document with 35 pages, and a PowerPoint document with 12 pages, all combined into and saved as a single compound document that displays as three pages when indexing.
“We just might have to think about revising our terminology to keep up with all the advances in content management.”
