impaired users a valuable document experience, or to have high-volume documents
indexed and loaded into an archive, Output Transformation is the right choice.
OpenText pioneered print-stream transformation and continues to lead the industry in
performance, scalability, and accuracy. Output Transformation is a 100-percent Java
engine that is ideal for high-volume batch production printing, indexing in batch operations,
and dynamic transformations for online document presentment.
Additionally, definable project flow components replicate and automate the business
logic needed for managing documents and customer correspondence.
Output Transformation transforms and repurposes high-volume documents and print
streams such as AFP, Metacode/DJDE, PCL, and PDF to a variety of output formats
including AFP, Metacode/DJDE, PDF, PDF/A, Accessible PDF (PDF/UA), PCL, XML,

PRODUCT OVERVIEW
OPENTEXT™ OUTPUT TRANSFORMATION
Industry Leading High-Volume Document Transformation
It is imperative that organizations present and deliver documents for customer correspondence, regardless of whether the documents
were created today or 20 years ago. Output Transformation is able to transform and repurpose high-volume documents between
incompatible formats, enabling the consumption of customer correspondence for high-volume batch production printing, document
storage consolidation, and on-demand online presentation.
Output Transformation delivers superior performance with the highest transformation and throughput rates to satisfy strict service
level agreements (SLAs). Through its multi-threaded design, it optimizes the reading, transformation, manipulation, and writing functions
by performing them in separate threads, enabling I/O and other operations to be even faster and making the most use of the available
hardware.
With its component-based architecture, Output Transformation allows organizations to use a single engine to accept and generate any
format without the need to implement separate one-to-one transformations. It allows organizations to implement transformation software
as a service (SaaS) to concurrently serve multiple lines of business.
Output Transformation is a 100-percent Java solution, deployable to all Java computing platforms including Microsoft® Windows®,
SUSE® Linux®, Red Hat Linux®, IBM® z/OS ®, IBM® AI®, and Oracle Solaris. Additionally, Output Transformation supports organizational
online presentment initiatives, and is deployable to a variety of application servers including IBM ® WebSphere ®, JBOSS ®, and
Oracle Application Server™, providing statements and customer correspondence via web and online channels.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW
OPENTEXT™ OUTPUT TRANSFORMATION
Superior Resource Handling for Fast and Efficient Transformation
When an organization is implementing an online document presentment initiative, it is imperative that presentment systems achieve a
sub-second response rate and fulfill specific transactions-per-second SLAs. One major benefit of Output Transformation is the capability
to cache common resources for high-volume document transformation.
When documents are stored in repository archives, a major bottleneck occurs during single document retrievals. When the documents
are retrieved for presentment, resources such as fonts, overlays, logos, and images need to be incorporated to correctly reformulate to
ensure the fidelity of the output, significantly delaying the presentment time for parsing out resources each time. To address this bottleneck, Output Transformation caches the resources within its engine, so that resources only need to be parsed once and are reused for
each subsequent transformation. By implementing resource caching, organizations can expect to see faster transformation times as
volumes increase.
OpenText Output Transformation contains the resource version control capability to ensure that documents can be printed and
viewed as they were created, regardless of the resource evolution associated with each document. By mapping unique version IDs
between documents and resources, Output Transformation matches the correct resources for each document.
Mine and Extract Valuable Information with OpenText™ Field Technology
One of the most valuable capabilities of Output Transformation is its ability to mine and extract text from documents. OpenText Field
Technology provides the ability to graphically map, extract, and repurpose information contained within documents. This extracted
content can be used for resolving conditional logic and extracting structured content such as generating archive indexes or feeding
information back into business applications. Additionally, extraction rules are easily configured graphically through OpenText™ Output
Transformation Designer, allowing developers to see their field definitions and the extracted content in real time, without editing complex
configuration files.

Output Transformation When You Need It, Where You Need It
Rarely does an organization only need to transform documents between formats. Organizations also need to extract information, make business
decisions, and manipulate the content within the documents. Output Transformation includes project flow components to automate sophisticated business logic for document transformations. Also, developers can easily implement desired business logic within the transformation
by defining their own project flow components to transform and retrieve content from external systems, insert content into external systems,
and perform computations. Since the project flow components are compiled and not scripted, they leverage the full power of Java with
top performance.

for identification and tracking
•
Burst multi-document streams into individual documents based on conditional logic
•
Modify content by replacing images or text and moving content on the page
•
Create indexes for documents to load into document archives
•
Route content to generators for creating multiple formats
•
Stop specific pages from being generated according to conditional logic

All data extraction and configuration can be done graphically through Output Transformation Designer and is stored within transformation
projects. With Output Transformation Designer, developers can see their field definitions and the extracted content in real time without
editing complex configuration files. With the automatic page layout detection software, the developer can automatically configure tables,
lists, and fields in a timely and accurate manner.
