Collaboration

 

Note: Adobe and its partner Influxis have reached an agreement resulting in a hosted collaboration service offering based on Adobe’s LiveCycle Collaboration Service (LCCS) code. The new service is  known as Influxis Collaboration Service. Influxis has been a trusted Adobe partner for six years, starting as a Flash Media Service hosting company and is now a leading interactive media delivery provider specializing in video solutions. Learn more about Influxis.

Influxis Collaboration Service is built to support the same framework and offer the same feature set currently available via LCCS. Influxis welcomes all Adobe LCCS customers to migrate to Influxis Collaboration Service.If you are interested in talking to Influxis about their service offering please contact Wesley Daggett, Director of Business Development, at 661-775-3936 or via email.

 

The Collaboration service enables developers to add easily real-time collaboration and social capabilities to their applications. The service is implemented as LiveCycle Collaboration Service. Adobe hosts the service so developers don't have to worry about deployment, maintenance, and scalability.
