The array of enterprise communication formats available today has expanded, ranging from instant messages to blogs and wikis, as well as more traditional means such as email and internal web pages.

But documents, including proposals, requirements, plans, agreements, and reports, remain the primary currency of business, and document collaboration continues to be a core activity of knowledge workers in their day-to- day work. As a result, knowledge workers are demanding and need more efficient and effective tools for document collaboration and exchange.

As IT organizations look to enhance or expand their enterprise collaboration capabilities, they should consider three important trends and their implications:

. Project teams that span multiple third-parties are becoming the norm, and the need to maintain security outside the firewall is increasing.
. The need for dynamic documents that enable more effective and engaging communications is growing.
. Reducing costs via better efficiency remains at the top of the executive agenda.

This Adobe Acrobat white paper looks at:

. Global collaborators are distributed-inside and outside the enterprise
. Demand for dynamic documents is growing
. IT faces continued pressure to reduce costs via better efficiency
