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

Posted by

 

Research shows that 85% of all business processes begin with a form… but what happens next is up to you.

The following post by Arun Anantharaman, Sr. Vice President of Products at Adobe, was published in the LiveCycle blog this week, and provides details about Adobe’s continued commitment to innovate in this space.

Stay tuned; more to come…

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. To date, we’ve released three form and document capabilities:

The feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive. Over the last three quarters, many customers have migrated to Adobe Experience Manager forms and documents while preserving their investments in LiveCycle forms.  By integrating form transactions and document confirmations into their web and mobile engagement strategies, they can extend their reach and maintain brand consistency while managing all assets from a single platform.

We will continue to provide updates to LiveCycle customers, while deepening our integration with Adobe Experience Manager to help government, financial institutions and other regulated industries easily engage with citizens and customers through secure, compliant, yet easy-to-use forms and documents. Stay tuned as we announce new features and releases in 2014.

Creative Cloud for Government: Winter 2014

If you haven’t been following the buzz around the Adobe Creative Cloud, we recently announced our 1.4 million paid subscriber mark, with Enterprise adoption accelerating rapidly. Our customers are overwhelmingly choosing subscriptions instead of perpetual model licenses, and we’ve seen very strong adoption across Government segments.

Defense, Civilian, State and Local IT procurement specialists are looking to Adobe’s ETLA (Enterprise Term License Agreement) model to keep initial costs down, shift licensing costs into the Operations/Management budget, and realize the value of Adobe’s ongoing innovations in multiscreen design and development.

One such innovation involves a new technology called “Perspective Warp” wrapped into Photoshop CC. With this integration, digital imaging professionals can easily change the perspective of images, whether they are manipulating perspective of one image or compositing multiple images together. Here’s a video tutorial on this long-awaited breakthrough feature.

If you’re looking for Government success stories around rapid adoption of new creative technologies, be sure to register for our free Adobe Digital Government Assembly on February 6th, 2014 at The Ritz-Carlton in Pentagon City. Come hear from technology leaders, senior agency officials and industry pioneers as they discuss three core themes that will serve as the foundation for government agencies moving forward: engage, transform and drive results.

One of the technical challenges many agencies face involve the rapidity of CC updates currently shipping, and keeping desktops up-to-date. Also, in many government IT environments, end users of Adobe desktop software are constrained to a thin layer of bandwidth, and users are not administrators. Many clients are completely disconnected from external networks, and if they do have connectivity, their internet access outside the firewall will be closely monitored, constrained or proxied.

For Government IT and procurement personnel seeking a comprehensive overview of Creative Cloud offerings for Government, including technical deployment tips,  we offer this new video and its associated slides. In the video, we discuss the specific policies around deployment that IT Directors will need to address from behind their network constraints. We also address how the rolling updates to our desktop products will help support your mission of keeping your networks secure, stable and uniform, and how to deploy those updates securely and efficiently behind your firewall.
