However, real-world businesses often rely on a variety of documents for their day-to-day needs that are not always cleanly printed.
We are excited to announce the addition of handwritten and mixed-mode (printed and handwritten) support. Starting now, handling handwritten and mixed-mode forms is the new norm.

Reduce disaster recovery time with Azure Site Recovery
Companies and cloud solutions teams by and large understand the need for a disaster recovery solution. One of the first steps while defining and choosing a disaster recovery plan is to perform a business impact analysis.

Once you perform the analysis and identify critical applications, the next step is to chart down your disaster recovery strategy.
