Adobe is financially strong, with over $4 billion in annual revenue, and $1 billion in cash reserves. Adobe employs more than 5,000 highly skilled and motivated engineers worldwide. Over 20% of revenue is reinvested in research and development every year. Our partners benefit from the best support infrastructure in the industry, with dedicated account and project management services, custom development, integration support, and ongoing maintenance. Adobe partners benefit from competitive pricing and licensing models to suit their needs.
Adobe is committed to advancing the print industry through the development of new standards, such as the JDF job ticket, and the PDF/X series of digital master formats. Adobe is an active participant in standard bodies and industry associations such as CIP4 (JDF), the International Color Consortium (ICC profiles), the Ghent PDF Workgroup (PDF/X), the PDF Association, the Print on Demand Initiative (PODi) and others. Most recently, Adobe initiated and drove the development of PDF/VT, the new ISO standard for Variable Data Print (VDP). Adobe originated the PDF format itself, the most robust imaging model in the world. In keeping with our commitment to standards, Adobe released stewardship of the PDF language to the ISO in 2008.
The Adobe print imaging platform is the most comprehensive and efficient in the industry. It is also the broadest, serving the Workgroup, Enterprise, Production Print and Graphic Arts markets for all classes of imaging devices. Our foundational technologies – including the Adobe PDF Library, Adobe Graphics Engine and Adobe Color Engine – deliver superior imaging results, and are therefore the most trusted in the industry. Our customers benefit from a stable, scalable technology base serving a broad range of user application requirements – from single page layout and output to high-volume, graphically rich personalized print. Adobe print technologies are the product of decades of development, enhanced and extended by ongoing investment and innovation.
