    What is an e-Signature? Part I.

    June 5, 2017 1:30 PM by Dave Venance

    There are two kinds of signatures today:


    •        Electronic Signatures


    An electronic signature, or e-signature, refers to data in electronic form, which is logically associated with other data in electronic form and which is used by the signatory to sign or confirm their approval of a document or transaction.


    •        Digital Signatures


    These are a subset of electronic signatures because they are also in electronic form. Digital signatures, are a cryptographic mechanism often used to implement electronic signatures.  Digital signatures go much further in terms of providing security and trust services. 



    Let’s consider the differences between electronic signatures and digital signatures in more detail.

You could be a manufacturing company and want to protect you intellectual property where only internal authorized staff can access the material. Or you’re organization is a bank and you have a need to control internal access but you also want to allow your clients to access their own documents in a secure manner.

    That’s a wrap: A cost-effective alternative to replacing your legacy system (Part II)

    November 14, 2016 2:12 PM by 4Point

    To continue discussing the Adobe AEM wrapper let's take a "technology view" on the problem.

    The AEM wrapper approach involves three elements:

    • An AEM Forms or AEM Sites user interface, which supports desktop, tablet and mobile devices
    • An AEM web service-based middleware layer that serves data as well as business rules
    • An application programming interface (API) that allows the legacy system to communicate with the Web using TCP/IP
