The activity had a completely technical approach, focused on the new technologies that HP is developing worldwide in the implementation of the physical and logical infrastructure, in all aspects of printing services.
Karen Olave and Joseph Blamey; Engineers from Information Technology Department of Instituto de Fomento Pesquero, were invited to make a visit under the global program “HP Boise Tour Going to the Source of Technology, Customer Experience Center” which is carried out at Research and Development plant of Hewlett-Packard (HP) located in the state of Boise, Idaho, United States.
They had the possibility to know and internalize the technological advances in the printing world, in documentary processes and in the application of SOA technology, oriented to services.
Joseph Blamey, an analyst-programmer explained, “This experience helped me to visualize how new technologies are handled in terms of document printing and digitalization and how it would help us apply it in our work focusing on the main needs that the institution has today.”
Karen Olave, who is in charge of system development area, added: “It is vital for our institution to know first-hand about the technological advances being made in different areas, this experience opens the mind to new ideas, in order to improve security processes and digitization of information.”
Some of the topics covered were: HP JetIntelligence, Print Innovations, JetAdvantage Solutions, JetAdvantage Workflow & Capture Solutions, Fleet Management and Security Strategy and the opportunity of two guided tours to the laboratories: Hardware Reliability Test Lab Tour and Enterprise Solution Test Lab Tour.
The technological advancement that attracted most interest is the “Digital Sending Software,” printers that allow you to scan a form and send the information to some site, or automatically send the data to a database, allowing you to capture different sources of entries and exits of a document and process it.
