AEM Forms preserves all the capabilities of LiveCycle and adds even more functionality such as:
Adaptive forms – responsive technology for mobile and desktop devices
E-Signatures – integration with Adobe Sign
Intuitive user interface – drag-and-drop functionality to create and manage forms
Simplified form filling – connections to back-end systems to autofill parts of forms
Why upgrade to AEM Forms?
Core support for Liveycle ES4 ends in March 2018. Adobe is investing in enhancing digital experiences,
increasing productivity, and eliminating paper waste through AEM Forms. You will still have access to all LiveCycle
functionality that has been enhanced in AEM Forms.
Enable workforce mobility. Field workers can interact with forms on-the-go and even save data, notes, and
photos, even while offline. Information will automatically synchronize when reconnected to the corporate network.
Simplify and scale forms. Editing your library of forms is much easier with an intuitive drag-and-drop
interface to quickly make changes to the front-end experience, including easy-to-use tools to connect forms to
backend systems to automate parts of the form filling process. You can also convert your existing LiveCycle
templates to work on any device and browser.
Create end-to-end paperless processes. Add legal e-signature components via Adobe Sign onto any form
or document, including complex signature workflows involving multiple and unauthenticated users.
Leverage the power of Adobe Experience Cloud. AEM Forms is natively integrated with AEM Sites to offer
centralized content management across multiple digital properties. It also integrates OOTB with Adobe Analytics and
Target to measure and optimize digital forms and documents.
There are many different modules and components of the AEM Forms product. So, determining how each user may
