SAP and Adobe claim proof of business agility with forms collaboration
Amey, Anglian Water Services, Linklaters, OCS Group and Tasnee are among users of SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe, which are the result of collaboration between SAP, Adobe and Arch FLM.
SAP also points to Transport for London's successful forms evaluation – with business processes extended to a multi-channel user interface – which, says the software giant, "further highlights the value of these complementary offerings".
SAP, Adobe and Arch say the idea was to provide customers with new and innovative ways to increase business agility while keeping total cost of ownership down. They add that more than 3,500 customers currently benefit from the technology, which releases greater value from the software – such as simplified and automated deployment and centralized and scalable management.
Says Christian Hauser, operations and reporting manager, HR services operations at Transport for London: "As a user of both FLM and SAP Interactive Forms by Adobe, we were keen to be involved in the HTML forms proof of concept testing, earlier this year."
And he adds: "The new Arch technology looks like a very powerful way to help us extend the use of intuitive forms capabilities and SAP software to staff using multiple environments and devices, including Blackberry, iPhone and iPad."
Ed Van Siclen, vice president of technology and partner solutions at Adobe Systems, believes that the combination of SAP NetWeaver and SAP Interactive Forms based on Adobe's document technologies enables organisations to automate and extend business processes to a broader range of users.
"We're pleased to continue working with SAP and Arch on enhancing these solutions, to help customers further extend their investments in SAP solutions integrated with industry-standard PDF-based forms," he says.
The integrated solutions are targeted at organisations that need to automate and extend business processes to many end users via forms-based user interfaces, using PDF, Flex and HTML formats, whether on-site or mobile.
