Acrobat 7 Takes Center Stage at Spring AGI Show
Annual PDF show features content for technology managers as well as for the IT people who implement their plansand, as always, for end users in publishing and office settings.Not only did Acrobat 7 get a makeover late last year, but so did the 1.6 PDF spec and many of the LiveCycle PDF server products. And, dont forget, many third-party software developers of plug-ins and stand-alone utilities and applications have either announced updates based on the new Adobe software or will soon. So lots will be happening at AGIs Adobe & Acrobat PDF Conference this spring, whose program was announced late last month. Chris Smith, head of AGI Training, says that prepress and multimedia publishing matters always draw strong interest at his shows. But this year, Smith has seen an expansion in interest up the corporate ladder: CIO types are figuring out which business processes can be committed to PDF via servers running software from the Adobe LiveCycle line or other systems driven by other vendors like ActivePDF or Appligent. And the IT people charged with implementing these changes are paying close attention to the PDF world too, as they consider how their businesses can benefit from PDF forms technology and as they wrangle with Section 508 accessibility issues and how to make their PDFs compliant with the regulation.
