While engineers, publishers, and printers push the format to its technical limits with rich media and 3-D content, the general office worker comprises the PDF-using majority.

In its most basic form, a runbook is an electronic or physical document that lists detailed procedures for handling every expected situation that an IT system may experience. Based on changes in system condition, incoming requests and other factors, system administrators determine which procedures to run and when to run them. Runbook procedures often include complex decision trees that indicate specific steps to follow depending on answers to pre-established questions.
Administrators are responsible for performing the appropriate steps of the procedure in painstaking detail, often by manually issuing commands to components and sub-systems. Primitive runbooks are notoriously inefficient, inflexible and error prone, sometimes relying on undocumented steps known to just a few staff members. Yet, if a critical step is missed or an incorrect
command is entered, the entire process may be negatively impacted.
Without a doubt, technology has revolutionized the way business is done. The vast majority of internal and external communication is now done through email, instant messaging, VOIP and other types of electronic communication. In addition, most business documents exist in digital form. The digitization of business has had significant implications for litigation. Legal eDiscovery is now an essential part of settling cases between organizations. Previously, many companies believed that eDiscovery was only for organizations that were public or highly regulated, but now most companies recognize that electronically stored information (ESI) regulations are applicable to all organizations and there is an ever-increasing need for cost-effective eDiscovery.

TMCC's Financial Aid Department (FA) stores about 14,000 hardcopy files, and processes approximately 7,000 new applications a year. FA workers were running out of space to house all of the files when they were told their office might be moved, resulting in the loss of their file room altogether. Since they are required by the U.S. Department of Education to keep files for four years (sometimes longer depending on a specific regulation) they knew converting to an electronic file system would save both time and money while serving their students better.
