Document Understanding Solution

Search for information across multiple scanned documents, PDFs, and images with compliance capabilities to redact information from documents


The Document Understanding Solution delivers an easy-to-use web application that ingests and analyzes files, extracts text from documents, identifies structural data (tables, key value pairs), extracts critical information (entities), and creates smart search indexes from the data. Additionally, files can be uploaded directly to and analyzed files can be accessed from an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket in your AWS account.

You can upload and process documents in bulk and, optionally, enable Amazon Kendra support for machine learning-based enterprise search.
