Adobe Launches New Servers and Solutions

Oct 22, 2002


Adobe Systems Incorporated has unveiled its new line of server-based products and solutions designed to automate document-intensive processes that companies rely on to run their businesses. Aimed at closing the gap between enterprise systems and traditional documents--such as forms, contracts, customized reports, and invoices--the new Adobe network publishing solutions focus on improving document generation, collaboration, and process management throughout the enterprise. The Adobe network publishing solutions address the document-intensive processes found in financial institutions, government agencies, manufacturing, and other regulated industries. The products, professional services, and support that make up these solutions integrate enterprise applications with the flow of documents throughout an organization. The Adobe Document Server is designed to let customers dynamically assemble customized Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files singularly or in volume from a variety of data sources including eXtensible Markup Language (XML) content. The new Adobe Document Server for Reader Extensions uses Acrobat Reader to provide a universal way for businesses and government agencies to interact directly with customers, partners, and citizens. It enables organizations to securely capture information by allowing individuals to fill in, save, and submit electronic forms online using a new release of the free Adobe Acrobat Reader, version 5.1. These new server products are in addition to Adobe's existing family of server solutions, including the Adobe Form Server, Adobe Workflow Server, and Adobe Central Output Server.
