We’re honored that Adobe was positioned as a Leader in the report; they evaluated Adobe Experience Manager Apps, which encompasses both PhoneGap Enterprise and Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS). Along with our industry leading Adobe Analytics, Experience Manager Apps enables businesses to create, deliver and measure digital experiences across mobile apps and the web with one set of assets.

App engagement continues to be high and marketplaces add thousands of apps each month. According to our Adobe Digital Index, consumers are spending three-to-four times longer in app sessions than browsing the web on mobile devices. Mobile apps powered by DPS have delivered over 210 million digital content publications to consumers in less than four years. And well over 100,000 PhoneGap developers have created tens-of-thousands of data-driven apps that are available across all major app stores.
