This on-premise, secure solution provides an enhanced customer experience to easily capture, manage, find, automate and deliver data.

State agencies use this solution to resolve multiple business needs. The NCXCloud system distributes content among all state of North Carolina users, including agencies, counties, universities and hospitals. Users can view content on web browsers, print all or part of reports and even extract data from content as it fits their needs. The NCXCloud administration functions provide full access controls based on user requirements, such as limiting access to certain content. Service Features NCXCloud offers the following features: Login to NCXCloud – NCXCloud is accessed through web browsers using an RACF ID and password. RACF is a robust security administrator that manages both product and content access. Easy access to content – NCXCloud's modern access tools facilitate day-to-day user access, such as quick access buttons, full search capabilities (from simple to complex searches) and data extraction. Maintain report version – Based on users' business requirements NCXCloud stores and maintains multiple versions of content, allowing quick and easy access to them. Content generated from multiple platforms – NCXCloud can make available content generated on different platforms, such as a report created on a mainframe and an ad-hoc report created on a distributed platform. If content can be stored, it can be made available through NCXCloud. Automation – NCXCloud allows full automation of tasks using either scripts or a combination of scripts and scheduled tasks. For example, automation tools can download particular content every morning or extract a subset of data from a report on the last day of the month. Secure data encryption – NCXCloud maintains secure data connections with TLS and SSL. Report actions: query, transform and download – When a user selects a document to browse, NCXCloud offers several options for viewing the content. The user can apply a query to view only certain content, transform the document or apply a content view based on end user requirements. They can download the document, email it or send it to a designated printer or even a specific driver. Content extraction – Users can re-purpose content into a format that meets their business needs. With this feature, users can extract selected pieces of information from a document, package them into a deliverable output file (e.g., .csv, .xml, .txt) and download that file to their computer. Report indexing – Indexing lets users find relevant information within a large document. The indexing process breaks a document into smaller sections, which can include an entire document, particular pages of a document or individual pieces of a document.
