Now that Adobe has decided that it will in future develop and market the LiveCycle product suite under the name AEM Forms, the two companies have expanded their existing cooperation to include the new product line. AEM stands for "Adobe Experience Manager" and is a comprehensive content management solution for creating websites, apps and forms that also simplifies the management of marketing content and assets.
Expansion of the cooperation agreement gives PROSTEP access to AEM Forms and the associated functions for generating intelligent PDF documents. As a result, the company can further develop PDF Generator 3D on the basis of the latest Adobe technology. This ensures support for the latest versions of operating systems, databases and application servers. PROSTEP will however continue to offer PDF Generator 3D on the basis of the old platform during a transitional period, thus allowing existing customers in particular to migrate at a time of their choice.
"We are pleased that Adobe has chosen to continue their longstanding cooperation with us and that we will in future be permitted to use the functionality of AEM Forms to enable us to offer our customers an even wider spectrum of solutions for digitizing the product engineering process," says Dr. Bernd Pätzold, CEO of PROSTEP AG, about the cooperation agreement. "Our 3D PDF technology is an important lever for implementing the model-based enterprise."
