The Adobe Central Output Server family is scheduled to reach end of life on June 30, 2016. AEM forms is the recommended replacement for most Central products. AEM forms is comparable, but not identical, to products in the Central Output Server family. Its robust architecture and extended capability set are designed for organizations that want to make the most of today's best-in-class enterprise architectures and on-demand business processes. AEM forms contains virtually all the capabilities of Central Output Server and a great deal more. Migrating customers will get enhanced output functionality and added features that will allow them to create, manage, and publish digital form and document collections to multiple channels so their clients can access them on any device.
