LiveCycle update: Forms, documents, and the Adobe Marketing Cloud

2013 was an exciting year for LiveCycle. I want to take a moment to update you on how we are continuing to invest and innovate in forms and documents, and provide an overview of our 2014 plans. In 2013, we introduced LiveCycle ES4, a major release that extends rich form and document experiences to mobile users. Shortly afterwards, we began integrating these capabilities into Adobe Experience Manager, enabling organizations to easily create, manage, and publish forms and documents in conjunction with a market leading web content management solution.

Arun Anantharaman, the Senior Vice President Adobe Digital Marketing Products, shares more about the 2014 plans, in this blog post.
