Adobe LiveCycle ES4

We use PDF forms for our submissions to the USPTO as well as for obtaining signature documents. With LiveCycle, I can update forms, save them, load them into my docketing database, and have them pre-populated with data. This process ensures continuity, less chance for error, and the ability to save the paralegals time when it comes to preparing filings.

Celonis

Perfect for accelerating analytical tools. I can not come up with a better alternative now. That is why I give it 10/10 points. It allows you to:
  • Understand what the processes look like in your company (if it runs SAP HANA)
  • Analyze global processes as well as details
  • Build and maintain process KPIs
  • Focus on specific, non-standardized processes
  • Focus on performance of branches, teams, external partnerts (if they use SAP HANA)

Pros

  • It enables me to quickly update and distribute forms that have been changed.
  • The layout features help ensure that the forms look professional.
  • The ability to preview what the final form will look like and how it will work, while still editing, is extremely helpful.

  • Provide big picture information and drill down to details, such as actors, cases, documents
  • Combine process discovery data with other business, e.g. controlling data
  • Great user interface
  • Unlike other products such as Minit or Disco, this tool is great at being able to directly enrich the findings with cost or revenue data
  • Easy to build and calculate critical process KPIs and demonstrate the findings to management (decision makers)

Cons

  • There are so many bells and whistles it can be intimidating.
  • It is not a product you just pick up and use, there is some training needed.

  • It works with SAP HANA. Unfortunately, we did not succeed with connecting it to the older SAP versions
  • Working with data models is not easy. The data model has to be 100% correct, otherwise the results bring confusion (either visible or not visible) or the model does not provide any data
  • Support for all standard SAP modules

Alternatives Considered

I have only ever used LiveCycle for our PDF form creation. I am not sure what other options there are, but we have never needed to look into anything else as LiveCycle works for us.

I have used the process mining software, Minit. Compared to Celonis, Minit does not allow us to enrich process data with other business data, but Minit is a universal process discovery tool. It can be further coupled with PowerBI or similar software for data enrichment. The reporting options and UX are far more advanced in Celonis, but Celonis is purely SAP HANA oriented.

Return on Investment

  • LiveCycle has ensured that we are able to get a lot done, with little manpower.

  • Using Celonis speeds up the whole company by restructuring projects. It saves time and human work.
  • Celonis provides perfect transparency - as well as other process mining tools - but it goes further. It allows us to combine the process KPIs with, for example, cost or revenue data.
  • Enables us to make decisions based on real-life numbers.
