PdfGrabber 4.0: Export PDF Content Easily and Save it in a Range of Formats

BREMEN, Germany, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- PDF files save all types of elaborately formatted information. The advantage of PDFs: they can be read on any computer system without any problems. However, users have to pay a high price for this universal readability: the content saved in the file cannot simply be exported and re-used. The new PdfGrabber 4 overcomes this obstacle and extracts texts and images, without losing any content, so that they may be used in a range of formats.

PDF files have long been indispensable in the computer world. They save all kinds of handbooks, information texts and promotional flyers. All that is needed is Acrobat Reader, available free of charge, on the target computer. It doesn't even matter whether the files are opened on a computer operating with Windows, Macintosh or Linux. However, the universal readability of PDF files comes at the expense of exportability: extracting texts and images from PDFs to use them in other programs requires effort and is often incomplete.

PdfGrabber solves this problem. The new version 4.0 extracts texts, images and vectors from an existing PDF document and saves it in a range of formats that are more suitable for further processing on the computer, including Excel, RTF/Word, DXF/CAD, XML, PowerPoint and ASCII text. This means that using the extracted data in familiar, standard applications such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint or AutoCAD is no problem - you don't even need to have Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer.

With PdfGrabber 4.0 there have been many optimizations regarding the individual target formats. The program can now deal with rotated text during Excel exports. DXF output now includes images. It also generates real curves: perfect for editing in a vector-based CAD program. If the user chooses XML format as their target, they can include image information. TIFF multipage format is also available for exporting images and is ideal for archiving purposes.

PdfGrabber 4.0 is available in several editions. PdfGrabber 4.0 Home costs 45 USD and is designed for private individuals wishing to convert PDFs into Word or text format. PdfGrabber 4.0 Standard is the perfect entry-level solution for private individuals and small companies. Priced at 90 USD, the program also enables data to be exported in Excel, saves images and enables export areas to be defined using a frame. PdfGrabber 4.0 Professional, available for 142 USD, is designed for professional users wishing to use all these functions plus DXF/AutoCAD, PowerPoint and XML output formats.

A free trial version of PdfGrabber 4.0 (11.8 MB) is available on the homepage http://www.pdfgrabber.com/ for users to download and try out on their computer. It enters X characters at random places in the exported text but otherwise has no restrictions.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
