Department of Defense Awards Joint Enterprise License Agreement for Adobe Software
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Adobe (News - Alert) (Nasdaq:ADBE) today announced the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD)
has entered into a three-year Joint Enterprise Licensing Agreement that
will result in expanded access to Adobe software across branches and
departments. The agreement provides the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and
Defense Information Systems Agency (News - Alert) (DISA) the ability to standardize on Adobe
Creative Cloud products, Adobe
Acrobat, and capabilities of Adobe
The contract, valued at $40.5 million, was awarded to CDW (News - Alert)-G, a
government IT solutions provider that works in partnership with Adobe.
Adobe and CDW-G worked in conjunction with Carahsoft on the contract.
As part of the agreement, the thre DoD organizations can now provide
Adobe's industry leading creative software and forms and document
solutions to multiple units, while reducing costs through
standardization. While these commercial applications utilize online
services, they also support offline and private cloud implementations-as
used by government for enterprise deployments.
Using Adobe Experience Manager forms and documents, the DoD plans to
unify forms creation, enhance forms processing with digital data
capture, and allow personnel to use mobile devices to submit requests at
any time and from any location. The Adobe solution enables organizations
to create, manage and make available thousands of forms and document
collections across entire websites, mobile sites and mobile apps.
Digital forms can be integrated with business processes, reducing the
reliance on paper, increasing efficiency and improving response times.
Through its adoption of Creative Cloud products and Acrobat XI Pro, the
DoD can create rich marketing collateral, manage review and approval
processes, and publish content for recruitment and peacekeeping
activities, supporting distribution through PDF and traditional online
channels, including to users on mobile devices. In addition, staff can
collect, edit and produce video content from remote services to provide
timely information for decision makers to support mission-critical
"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."
