Document Cloud @ Summit 2017 We rocked it!

Summit 2017 is officially in the books! The Document Cloud team did a great job of integrating our message thought multiple programs at the event. As a reminder, our goal was to showcase Document Cloud as an integral part of Adobe's strategy to help customers accelerate their digital transformation journey and deliver exceptional experiences.


Leveraging the theme, Accelerate marketing execution with Adobe Document Cloud the team centered our participation in the Document Cloud area that was part of the larger Adobe booth in the Community Pavilion. Drawing customers in with Signature & Handwriting Experts, customers could choose to do a 10 minute analysis of their signature, or to find out what their signature font revealed about them by creating a word-cloud. These provided us a captive audience to drive awareness of Adobe Document Cloud through click-through demos featuring Acrobat DC, Adobe Sign plus our integration with AEM Forms.

The team also staffed the Document Cloud area of the Adobe Experts Table, where the majority of the questions were around AEM Forms and Adobe Sign. This made the Mortgage Demo a successful key asset with resonated across verticals, as many customers know the awful experience using wet signatures, which in turn emphasized Adobe Sign and AEM forms as key value to the business.

In addition to our presence at the Adobe Booth, we also partnered with the regional marketing team to host 67 customers during a breakfast an lunch event.

  • 1,161 Signature Font word-clouds generated
  • 154 Signature analysis sessions
  • 1000+ views of Lisa & Dan interview on Daniel Newman's twitter feed

Driving awareness of Document Cloud is still priority #1 with this audience. Leveraging Acrobat DC as the start of the conversation, and leading customers to learn about Adobe Sign and our Document Cloud partner integrations (including Marketing Cloud) was the right approach. Customers were excited about Acrobat, then were blown away when they learned the full power of Document Cloud and all-digital workflows.

Experience Cloud announcement drove new interest in the integration of Adobe Sign and Marketing Cloud. Many customers assumed the integration was brand new as it was highlighted with the brand change of Experience Cloud. Field teams are continuing this wave of interest during their lead follow up

The breakout session had low attendance; however, only 50% drop off for initial registration. Learning is to get on the agenda earlier and drive registration through more channels: social, sales nurture emails, and enterprise field marketing.
