We are also introducing the new Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform (ADEP), which embodies multiple functionalities formerly offered by Adobe LiveCycle ES, Day Software, and more. ADEP is a bold platform, which solves a major issue emerging in modern enterprise architecture. The architectural discipline of Customer Experience Management (CEM) is important for modern enterprises to grasp and act upon. CEM is described from an architectural perspective within the blog post and video here.
ADEP offers customers many choices (such as HTML5 or SWF), which I believe is best decided on a per requirements basis. A further explanation from the Adobe website reveals some of the problems ADEP solves:
“Companies that want to differentiate themselves from the competition realize that they must deliver applications that engage customers as they access information and interact with the business and its frontline employees. And customers want access on
any device or across any channel. Central to accomplishing that goal is simple, yet engaging, interfaces that enable customers to access information and processes, even if they are contained in corporate systems. Efforts to merely extend access to such systems have not proven successful due to the complexity of user interfaces that have been designed for specialists, not customers and the frontline employees who serve them.”
The obvious enrichment a platform can deliver is a common pipeline for data and processing, designed from the bottom up with Cloud and Social Media DNA. The data modeling capabilities also offer enterprise developers some really cool new features.
Over the next few weeks we will continue to post articles to expose bits of the platform and explain what it means in terms of existing LiveCycle ES customers.
Hope to see you at Adobe MAX 2011!

Adobe MAX is coming soon and I’m very excited to be co-presenting a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Lab with Christophe Coenraets this year! The official title is Building an Enterprise App for Android Tablets in 90 Minutes, however we will be targeting Tablet devices in general, not just Android. You will walk away from the lab with a full-fledged Tablet application that works great on iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab (10in), Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry PlayBook and more. It will serve as an excellent reference for all things mobile since we cover a ton of different mobile development features and use various APIs for some added coolness.
Here are some highlights of the application we’ll be building:
- Specifically target a tablet with a split panel look (list on the left/detail on the right – think mail clients on tablets)
- Use states to control layout based on things like current device orientation, OS (android, iOS, qnx) and device type (phone/tablet). NOTE: Honestly, this alone is a reason to come to this session. You will see how you can use a states helper class to automatically update states for all of these things (orientation, OS and device type) and simplify the multi-platform development challenge in a big way!
- Use a SQLite local database for persisting data
- ESRI map incorporation
- Geocoding and reverse geocoding with Google Geocoding APIs
- Camera Integration – take a picture and save it to your database
- GPS Integration
- Using Gestures
- Using a BusyIndicator
- Custom styles and skins
- Custom components including a popup list implementation (to replace a drop-down)
- Custom item renderers
And much more!
The spots are going fast so register now! At last check we had only 20 or so left out of 100, so if the above sounds good to you then what are you waiting for?! Our session will be held Wednesday, October 5th from 8:30-10am. Don’t miss out!
See you at MAX !!!

Lab 12: Installing the ADEP SDK and Samples packages
Lab 13: Extract, Set up and Run the sampledb
Lab 14: Enable Remote Data Services via the Felix Console
Lab 15: Retrieving and Installing the ADEP SDK into Flash Builder
Lab 16: Setting up a new Flash Builder ADEP Project
Lab 17: Building the Flex Client Application for ADEP

Lab 18: Adding Nodes and XML Content to ADEP
Lab 19: Building a Flex Mobile Project that consumes ADEP Services
How to build the ADEP_XML View
Getting Details about each wine
Lab 20: Advanced ADEP mobile services
Lab 21: Building a RESTful mobile application with ADEP
Lab 22: Learn how to use cross-platform push messaging
Lab 23: Learning how to use local notifications
Lab 24: Adding two-factor authentication
There is no guarantee this is the final list of labs however it should be relatively close.
– comfortable with XML syntax
– some coding experience would be good
There are still some seats left for this session. You can register at:

New Solutions Empower Marketing and IT to Transform Multi-Channel Customer Experiences June 20, 2011 12:04 AM Eastern Daylight Time SAN JOSE, Calif.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced its new Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform for Customer Experience Management (CEM). The platform enables enterprises to build immersive, multi-channel digital interactions for today’s social and mobile customers. […]

On June 20, 2011, Adobe announced its new “Digital Enterprise Platform” software or ADEP. The platform is designed to address a new problem domain that Adobe and others have identified as “Customer Experience Management” or CEM. Please use the Twitter hashtag #AdobeCEM to follow tweets regarding CEM.
For customers with extant investment in Adobe LiveCycle and are wondering about what all of this means to them, here are some points to consider:
1) The enterprise services, and the orchestration capabilities that LiveCycle provided will all continue to be available as part of the new Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform software. They will henceforth be called “Document Services“.
2) “Document Services” will continue to be J2EE (JEE) applications requiring a J2EE appserver such as JBoss, WebSphere or WebLogic as well as a relational database such as Oracle, SQL Server, DB2 or MySQL.
3) Day CQ5 will become a “Customer Experience Solution” named “Web Experience Management”. There will also be other Customer Experience Solutions.
4) Mosaic will henceforth be called “Composite Application Framework”
5) LiveCycle Data Services will become “Data Services”
5) All “Customer Experience Solutions”, “Composite Application Framework” and “Data Services” will run on the new Apache Felix OSGi framework, not J2EE (no Tomcat, JBoss, WebSphere or WebLogic required). They will be using a JSR-283 compliant Java Content Repository (JCR) – no relational database will be required.
Here’s a simple equation to remember:
ADEP = LiveCycle + (Day) CQ5 + Mosaic + Data Services + “Customer Experience Solutions” (formerly “Solution Accelerators”)
We will be renaming this blog once the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform software is released.

Email, Browser, Login, Approve is just too long. I don’t know about you but it really bugs me when systems send me emails with links to a browser, which then asks me to authenticate, which then shows me a form that I need to approve. If the system is internal then I need to wait […]
