Form processing is one of the major daily tasks in many public and private businesses. Processes based on paper forms are resource intensive, time consuming, and often result in inaccurate or incomplete data. This article describes how you can build an efficient electronic solution for form data capture, submission, and management. The article guides you through three steps to build an efficient XML electronic forms data collection solution with Lotus® Forms for data capture, DB2® pureXML® for data storage and query, and a connection between the two via a simple Web service that you can create with Data Studio Developer. In three steps you can have an operational electronic forms application that can be the basis for efficient, quick, and accurate data collection and management.
