Digital and social technologies have raised the bar for everyday business processes such as document creation and distribution to be more collaborative and engaging. However, there are several pressing questions facing IT decision-makers as they explore solutions that will help adapt to this new collaborative behavior: •How can IT secure documents circulated by email outside the organization? •How can they provide the same collaborative features to users who cannot access the corporate document management solution? •How can they enable collaborative document creation and review across different file formats, platforms, browsers and devices? •Most important, how can IT address all of these challenges in a cost-effective manner? To answer these questions, Adobe recently commissioned Crimson Consulting to explore how Acrobat X supports knowledge workers and this new way of working and whether it increased productivity and improved cost-savings.
