U.S. Department of Defense Signs License Agreement with Adobe
Adobe recently announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has signed a three-year Joint Enterprise Licensing Agreement for the company’s Adobe Creative Cloud products, Adobe Acrobat, and capabilities Adobe Experience Manager. Under the licensing agreement, valued at $40.5 million, the DoD will have expanded access to Adobe solutions across branches and departments.
The agreement provides the U.S. Army, U.S Air Force and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) the opporunity to reducing costs through standardization.
For example, Adobe Experience Manager, a solution that helps organizations organize, create, and manage the delivery of creative assets and other content across their digital marketing channels, will unify forms creation, enhance forms processing with digital data capture, and allow personnel to use mobile devices to submit requests for these three DoD organizations.
Meanwhile, the Creative Cloud products and Acrobat XI Pro will help the DoD create rich marketing collateral, manage review and approval processes, and publish content for recruitment and peacekeeping activities. The department will also be able to collect, edit and produce video content from remote services to provide timely information regarding mission-critical activities.
“Our long-term relationship with the Department of Defense is of great significance and pride to Adobe, and acts as a source of ongoing motivation as our teams push to innovate,” said Barry Leffew, vice president, Public Sector Sales, Adobe. “This expanded commitment to Adobe software is strong validation of our solutions and further strengthens our valued partnership. We’re honored to support the DoD in pursuit of its mission goals and to help increase productivity across three of its key organizations.”
