An IBM Redbooks publication

Note: A new draft version of this publication is now available


Organizations face many challenges in managing documents that they need to conduct their business. IBM® Production Imaging Edition V5.0 is the comprehensive product that combines imaging, capture, and automation to provide the capabilities to process and manage high volumes of document imaging over their entire life cycle.

This IBM Redbooks® publication introduces Production Imaging Edition, its components, the system architecture, its functions, and its capabilities. It primarily focuses on IBM Datacap Taskmaster Capture V8.0, including how it works, how to design a document image capture solution, and how to implement the solution using Datacap Studio. Datacap Studio is a development tool that designers use to create rules and rule sets, configure a document hierarchy and task profiles, and set up a verification panel for image verification.

This book highlights the advanced technologies that are used to create dynamic applications, such as IBM Taskmaster Accounts Payable Capture. It includes an in-depth walkthrough of the dynamic application, Taskmaster Accounts Payable Capture, which provides invaluable insight to designers in developing and customizing their applications.

In addition, this book includes information about high availability, scalability, performance, and backup and recovery options for the document imaging solution. It provides known best practices and recommendations for designing and implementing such a solution.

This book is for IT architects and professionals who are responsible for creating, improving, designing, and implementing document imaging solutions for their organizations.
