We currently create and manage several apps for a large automaker using their DPS Enterprise license. We have tried to reach out in several avenues on multiple occasions to have someone at Adobe help us understand exactly what moving to the new platform will mean for us. We need someone to:

- Walk us through what it takes on our end to upgrade our systems and software from Classic DPS to DPS 2015.

- With on-demand downloading of content inside our DPS 2015 apps, what happens when the user does not have Wi-Fi?

- Related to above question, is there an option allowing the user to download the entire app for usage when Wi-Fi is not available?

- What happens to our existing app (that is currently available in the iTunes and Google Play stores), standard library views and legacy folios when we upgrade to DPS 2015?

- How long does Adobe plan to offer support and access to classic DPS functionality, complete with Folio Builder and Folio Producer? Is there a date in the future that all publishers will be forced into DPS 2015?

- Walk us through what it takes on our end to upgrade our systems and software from Classic DPS to DPS 2015.

This depends on your systems and software. I'm getting the impression from your questions that you think moving from "Classic" DPS to DPS 2015 is an all or nothing proposition. As a DPS customer, you can continue creating and publishing DPS 2014 apps while also creating DPS 2015 apps.

See Digital Publishing Solution Help | Stratagies for upgrading apps from DPS to DPS 2015

- With on-demand downloading of content inside our DPS 2015 apps, what happens when the user does not have Wi-Fi?

If a user doesn't have Wi-Fi when they launch the app, they'll only be able to view content that they've viewed previously (and has not yet been removed from cache) or collections that they've explicitly downloaded). This is similar to Classic DPS apps, with the exception of single-folio apps, which are self-contained and don't require Wi-Fi.

- Related to above question, is there an option allowing the user to download the entire app for usage when Wi-Fi is not available?

No, not yet. Users need to download content on a collection-by-collection basis.

- What happens to our existing app (that is currently available in the iTunes and Google Play stores), standard library views and legacy folios when we upgrade to DPS 2015?

If you choose to upgrade those apps with DPS 2015 apps, the standard library views and legacy folios will go away and be replaced by the browse pages and collections you create. You can migrate your DPS 2014 content to DPS 2015: Digital Publishing Solution Help | Migrate content from DPS folios

- How long does Adobe plan to offer support and access to classic DPS functionality, complete with Folio Builder and Folio Producer? Is there a date in the future that all publishers will be forced into DPS 2015?

There isn't a set date in which publishers will be forced to use DPS 2015. DPS 2014 will be supported at least through the summer of 2016 and as long as it makes sense for DPS customers. You might ask Nick about this when you contact him.
