Automate Data Extraction
Extract and transform your business-critical data with automated web scraping, screen scraping, and data mining.
Modern businesses run on data. However, if the source of the data is unstructured, extracting what you need can be labor-intensive. For example, you may want to pull information from the body of incoming emails, which have no pre-determined structure. Especially important for today’s enterprises is gleaning data from the web. Using traditional methods, website data extraction can involve creating custom processing and filtering algorithms for each site. Then you might need additional scripts or a separate tool to integrate the scraped data with the rest of your IT infrastructure.
Your busy employees don’t have time for that. Any company that handles a high volume of data needs a comprehensive automation tool to bridge the gap between unstructured data and business applications.
AutoMate’s sophisticated data extraction, transformation, and transport tools keep your critical data moving without the need for tedious manual tasks or custom script writing. AutoMate data extraction works with the following data sources:
