Industry Trends & Challenges

Companies are awash in business forms that come in many formats – InfoPath, PDFs, Word and Excel documents, and even paper. The data captured within these forms and the workflow these forms drive are critical to running the business.  But too often these forms are un-managed, created ad-hoc, and re-created over and over again as new formats and technologies are adopted.   These forms and the data they contain are locked up in cloud drives, hard drives, and inboxes, and are routed around inefficiently with email. Organizations must find a way to consolidate, manage, efficiently route, and extract data from these forms in order to digitally transform their business processes.

How it Works


Step 1: Translate

  • Vines input connectors read the UI, layout, schema and data sources from the form. 
  • The form is disassembled into its constituent parts and translated into the Vines Uniform model.


Step 2: Persist and Store

  • The translated form is persisted in the Uniform common model for immediate conversion.
  • The form is stored in the uniform model for future conversion to alternative form types.


Step 3: Convert

  • Use the Vines-K2 connector to reassemble the form as a K2 SmartForm based on the attributes identified in the Uniform model.
