We have been using Flash for the last couple of years to
develop small applications and presentations used for project
reporting. Most of our clients use us because our presentations run
so much better and faster than their own PowerPoint or Acrobat
versions. Plus, there is a substantial benefit in having a
professional take care of design, information architecture and user
We have one client that has several different levels of data
confidentiality. In other words we now handle some of they’re
reporting, but because of corporate policy we are unable to handle
all of it. Leaving them to what they refer to as, “Death by
Powerpoint”. What they are asking us for is some sort of
templated version of what we do. For example, a simple Powerpoint
template... only, not Powerpoint and not so simple. A Flash app,
but something they can drop their own confidential information into
without using Flash to do it.
What we’re looking for is advise from real developers.
What Adobe products would be appropriate for a project like this?
Again, we are not serious programmers but, do have a fair amount of
experience with Flash and actionscript.
