Screen Scraper

Have you heard about screen scraping? I haven’t heard of it until now and I was curious about it. It is a technique in which a computer program extracts data from the display output of another program. It sometimes called as Data Extraction, Web Harvesting, or Web Crawling. To understand more about this subject I watched an online demo of Mozenda, a Data Scraping Software. As shown in the demo, a person can easily gather data as simple as 1-2-3. The demo showed a very simple step in extracting data from a website. A person can easily do it in just 5 minutes, very fast isn’t it? Though the software requires familiarity but I’m sure you can easily appreciate it because it doesn’t take a lot of time learning about it. Maybe in a couple of hours, you can directly get its full features at your own advantage. It’s very useful especially if you want to gather data and organize them in one single location. I think most businessmen might be interested about this, because you can use this in making price comparison script as shown in the demo. They can also use this in conducting market research, creating custom catalogs, lists and databases. If I will have my own business, I will consider using this kind of software. Interested? You can try a free 14 day trial of Mozenda’s service today.
