Adobe Acrobat DC

What I liked the most was how nice the PDFs look and all the options Adobe gives you. Capturing parts of the PDF is very useful for making reports. The conception of the image as a vector object is a right choice, since you can zoom without losing quality.Adobe Acrobat products need a simplification, Acrobat comes with Acrobat Reader, but you have to pay monthly. DC comes without Scan, but the MAX comes with the Scan, but without the cloud, and the cloud comes without the MAX but with the Adobe Acrobat DC, it is a tremendous mess to know what tools you need apart from the Adobe Acrobat DC to have everything centralized in the same suite. That and the price you have per month if you only select Acrobat DC

Confluence

Confluence is great at democratizing content creation, managing short projects or activities, and distributing content to a large audience. It falls down due to the lack of a content creation work flow, content findability, and viewing/editing Word/Excel documents within the platform.

Pros

  • I like the fill and sign feature.
  • Synching feature is very nice.
  • Simplicity for basic tasks with a PDF, although then the thing gets a bit complicated. It has quite a lot of options

  • Confluence provides the ability to any employee to create content as they see fit, democratizing the content creation process
  • The parent and child relationships between pages makes organizing your content much easier.
  • If you're also using Jira as your task management software, the native integration allows you to work in both systems and share content and data between the two, seamlessly.

Cons

  • The colour scheme for GUI could do with being darker.
  • For those used to the workflow of Acrobat 11, it is significantly different and takes quite a while to figure out.
  • Whilst creating a pdf from the MS Office or Adobe CC suites is very simple - converting a pdf into those formats has a lot of room for improvement.

  • Atlassian is not intuitive for the user. Several of our staff who have not received training on the platform find that it is not user-friendly.
  • Posting on Atlassian can also take more time than expected due to the plethora of options available.
  • Atlassian Confluence does not always look the same in different internet browsers. In talking with a co-worker, he told me it works best on Chrome. My computer has IE and Chrome, so I have to be sure I am using Chrome when I log into Confluence.

I am confident that Atlassian can come with additional and innovative macros and functions to add value to Confluence. In 6 months, Atlassian transformed a good collaborative tools into a more comprehensive system that can help manage projects and processes, as well as "talk" with other Atlassian products like Jira. We are in fact learning more about Jira to evaluate a possible fit to complement our tool box.

Usability

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC provides an easy user interface. The program can take some time to get used to, just like most programming you use, but once the software is understood it is very easy for users to use. Compared to many programs this is very easy for people to use.

Overall I find Confluence to very pleasing to use. I don't feel like it's getting in the way of the task at hand. It just feels easy. Creating pages, editing pages, finding pages, sharing pages, exporting, printing, organizing all feel natural to me. Occasionally using certain macros can be cumbersome inside the WYSIWYG editor but for the most it's smooth.

Performance

Overall, Adobe Acrobat DC performs at an acceptable rate. The software takes some time to load, but nothing that is unreasonable when launching a document. The program responds at a reasonable speed and performs well when operating tasks. It takes time for it to evaluate a document when you request to edit the document, but that is understandable considering it is identifying words and such in the document.

Pages load quickly. If something closes abruptly (such as the browser), it lets us know when work needs to be reviewed/saved/deleted to avoid any unintentional overrides.

I have not had a lot of support experiences with Atlassian, but of the few I have, I wasn't very satisfied with the results. I found that multiple people would respond to the issue at various stages, requiring re-communication (even though the support system stores everything and shows it to both them and you). Often responses came at odd hours, resulting in 24+ hour turnaround on basic responses, even if you respond right away. Support often asks you to do things which require downtime, and don't seem sympathetic if your organization requires that downtime to be done off-hours. This makes it difficult to resolve issues in a timely manner, if at all.I must note that I have not opened a support incident with them in close to 2 years, and it's my understanding from colleagues that there has been much improvement. My comments and ratings reflect my older experiences.

Alternatives Considered

We have used Acrobat DC as part of our Adobe CC subscription since 2014 and as it has always sat well with our other software purchases and performed all the tasks required of it, we've never had a reason to look elsewhere. It may be that if our current trial of the fill and sign functionality doesn't produce the results we want then we'll look at other options then, but for now we'll definitely be sticking with Acrobat DC.

The only similar tool I have seen around is Trello. Trello is a fine tool, but for large agile teams there's no point of comparison. Trello simply allows us to place some tickets like JIRA and some basic comments, and that's it. Confluence and its family tools like JIRA provide timelines, comments, users, documentation and more.

This tool is very adaptable. So much so we use it for three completely separate projects, in three very different ways.

Return on Investment

  • It allows us to adjust forms to our needs. So we can change the wording from one department to another without having to create entirely new forms.
  • Creating fillable forms allows work to be done quicker because you don't have to mess with formatting due to filling in.
  • We can lock the forms so we can send to people outside the organization and not worry about terms being changed.

  • An intranet is essential for any modern company. This product met our needs and had lots of opportunity for customization, etc., but out of the box is rather basic.
