Adobe announced today significant enhancements to its Adobe LiveCycle server platform. The platform incorporates server applications such as Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions, which allows document providers to enable commenting or form-filling on a per-document basis. The update means that LiveCycle now delivers visual assembly of process automation applications without the need for programming and Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) for visibility into business processes, better integration of document security and control capabilities, and the ability to integrate data from two-dimensional (2D) barcoded forms for paper-to-electronic automation.
Ameriprise Financial, a leading asset management and insurance company, uses the new LiveCycle software to provide its client advisors with desktop access to an easy to use system of business and services forms. "We selected the Adobe LiveCycle platform to streamline the process of opening and servicing new business accounts," says Steven Guida, vice president of service delivery operations for Ameriprise Financial, Inc, formerly American Express Financial Advisors. "We chose the Adobe LiveCycle server platform because of the breadth and depth of its functionality, and Adobe's clear strategic vision in the forms automation and workflow space."
The new release makes use of operational performance and other technology from key partners including Celequest, Avoka, Corticon, ILOG, iGrafx and NetManage.
Updates to Adobe LiveCycle software, including the new Adobe LiveCycle Workflow, are available now and can be purchased as stand-alone offerings, by CPU or by user (see www.adobe.com/enterprise for more details). Pricing for components of the LiveCycle platform starts at US$50k.
