When we introduced Adobe LiveCycle in 2004, our goal was to make it easy for customers to author and publish PDF forms. Over the past 14 years since Adobe LiveCycle’s inception, there has been an increased adoption of mobile devices and big push towards digital transformation. Customers are looking for a product that is ready for a web and mobile-first world.
To address these needs, in 2014 we introduced the next evolution of LiveCycle called Adobe Experience Manager Forms.
Adobe Experience Manager Forms modernizes the existing features in Adobe LiveCycle. It also adds capabilities to transform digital enrollment, onboarding and ongoing forms-based communications into simple, streamlined experiences, including the ability to:
- Author mobile-ready forms that adapt to any device and screen size
- Design forms that are optimized for both print and web, from a single editor
- Integrate with the rest of Adobe Experience Cloud to track engagement across channels and identify where customers abandon during the enrollment process

We want to help our customers make a smooth transition to Adobe Experience Manager Forms. To this end, it is important for any organization still using Adobe LiveCycle to be aware that core technical support has ended, and to begin planning accordingly.
