Today, we announced the Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform. This is a very exciting time for Adobe and every organization looking to deliver customer experience solutions that truly meet market requirements. Too many times software companies talk about things to come and how they can make it better. Customer Experience Management is not a future trend, the time is now. The Adobe Digital Enterprise Platform is built to enable developers to deliver the best multi-channel experience possible – whether it’s HTML5, Flash or AIR.
You may be asking yourself, so what’s the big deal about ADEP, I could do the above with Flex and jQuery, etc. The big deal is that with the combination of CRX (from the Day acquisition) and LiveCycle ES which is now ADEP, you now have a modular platform where web scalable capabilities such as data services and composite application framework (previously known as Mosaic) run on the lightweight Experience Server core (CRX) and enterprise scalable capabilities like process management and document services run on the Document Server on JEE(LiveCycle).
Add that to what you can now build in Flex 4.5 for mobile and browser as well as HTML5 within dreamweaver, you now have one killer platform and best of breed tooling to leverage your existing IT investments.
Now that we have reached public announce, you will see a lot of backlogged information hit the bloggosphere pretty fast. Actually, I am hosting two sessions this week: one on Tuesday as part of the Developer Deep Dive sessions and another on Thursday as part of Flex Developer Week. You can also check out the new CEM website for more information on the awesome solutions that we will be releasing on top of ADEP. Rob Tarkoff also posted on the Adobe blogs an excellent overview.
Stay tuned, we’re just getting started!
