AEM Forms vs AEM out-of-box Form Component

AEM Forms vs AEM out-of-box Form Component 
It depends on your use case, if you have one or two simple forms where you want to capture 5 fields of information then the OOTB forms would suffice.  However if you have this requirement, moderately complex, and/or complex forms then AEM Forms would be a better solution.  Here are some of the details as to why I make this statement:
1)  Form model capabilities - being able to bind a form to a schema or XDP form for ease of back end integration
2) Rule builder as an example of being able to add logic to a form without the requirement of scripting including access to web services
3) Document of record - in many cases upon submission of data there is a desire to create an archive of the submission, AEM Forms can create PDF and PDF/A documents by utilizing OOTB services and either no or little coding
4) If you have a need for adding attachments to the form and using them as part of archive or welcome kit - AEM Forms OOTB can convert other document types to PDF and then combine these documents together along with page numbering, table of contents, bookmarks ect....
5) Batch capabilities - perhaps you have a requirement to merge data onto a template and produce print output that's directed to printer or bulk PDF creation
6) OOTB correspondence management capabilities to manage documents such as contracts
7) A much richer set of components that come OOTB to ensure the best possible user experience
8) One click Marketing Cloud integration - easily add in Analytics, Adobe Sign, Target using the built in Forms Manager
9) Sophisticate form capabilities such as form fragments, form sets, lazy loading - these all ensure ease of form authoring and ensure a high performing user experience
10) Forms Manager to manage all your forms - dictionary translation, initiate review and comment, find relationships between forms and form fragments ect....

  1. If you were thinking about a successful career and you need an application for audit, use my advice, this is the platform software company for someone who downloaded the demo version of electronic forms with the expanded functionality. And like the employee of the company, in which I'm an employee, it really rises up the productivity. And this once again confirms the need to use the newest Software and applications that are also suitable for monitoring using Android. That's why I advise you to try that application for business.
