A result of the PureEdge Solutions acquisition, Workplace Forms has just come out and is now available on Passport Advantage. I got to know some of the folks at PureEdge this past summer and they are an extremely capable company. They've been working in the e-forms market for over 10 years, so the product is mature, full-featured, and performs well. If you have a business problem that includes being able to treat a form and it's instance data together as one document, for security and legal compliance reasons (think, signed contract), or to present a paper form with pixel-level precision (govt or insurance forms), then you should check it out. You can also include attachments in the mix. For simple forms, the tool is easy to use and you don't run out of steam like some other products from our competitors.
Even though this is under the IBM Workplace banner, a Workplace server is not required. Workplace Forms can be integrated with anything out there - I mean anything! This presents an opportunity for enterprising developers to build whole solutions for their customers. IBM will or does provide some out of the box integration kits for Content Manager, WebSphere Portal, Lotus Notes/Domino, and Workplace Collaboration Services, but those are due next year.
