Download Linearized PDFs: An End-to-End Overview with Technical Requirements for Implementation

Dealing with large documents can be a challenge. Enterprise organizations are often confronted with documents comprised of hundreds of pages, and averaging hundreds of megabytes. Document-centric processes are the cornerstone of organizations in a number of different industries – whether it is Life Sciences, GovernmentFinancial Services or something else – and are used for a number of different purposes, such as technical documentation, support cases or corporate briefing books.

Getting quick access to high-value documents is a business-critical requirement. In today’s world of social media, fast internet connections and instant availability of virtually all information, quick access to corporate documents is paramount. This creates a tremendous challenge for IT departments within organizations, as end users may not make a technical distinction between websites like Wikipedia being instantly available, and high-fidelity, high-quality documents provided by their organization.

Improving business process efficiency with linearized PDFs

With large documents spanning hundreds of pages and hundreds of megabytes, ensuring that the PDF is linearized enables fast web viewing and downloading. Take a look at the recently published technical briefing paper, Linearized PDFs: An End-to-End Overview with Technical Requirements for Implementation, to find out how you can ensure your PDFs are linearized in your enterprise content management system to give your users fast access to critical documents.

The benefits of serving PDF documents in a fast and reliable manner can not only drive user acceptance and improve experience, but also drive down costs in several document-centric processes.
