Providing on-demand business solutions

The Adobe and IBM vision of on-demand business is an enterprise whose business processes — integrated end to end across the company with key partners, suppliers, and customers — respond with flexibility and speed to any customer demand, market opportunity, or threat.

Document Services optimized for WebSphere

The Adobe® Intelligent Document Platform is optimized for IBM WebSphere. This translates to superior performance for organizations running Adobe Intelligent Document Platform solutions on the IBM WebSphere Application Server. In addition, the joint solution includes the tools and resources to help organizations develop, deploy, and integrate forms-based processes into their WebSphere infrastructure. The Adobe Intelligent Document Platform is Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) compliant and offers full compatibility with the WebSphere development environment. The combination of Adobe Intelligent Document solutions and WebSphere's highly robust and scalable platform gives organizations even more opportunities to maximize their return on application infrastructure investments.

Running the Intelligent Document Platform on WebSphere provides many competitive advantages, including:

  • Faster decision-making and better business visibility. By automating Web-based form workflows and accelerating access to business-critical information, organizations can streamline e-business processes and improve integration across business systems.
  • Increased customer responsiveness, customer value, and brand loyalty with new Web-based services and customer self-service options.
  • Reduced overhead costs and accelerated time to value with simplified form design and a reduced need for expensive, time-consuming Java development.
  • Highly secure information exchange inside and outside the firewall with a dual system- and document-level security model.
  • Easier, lower-cost regulatory and process compliance.
  • Enhanced availability of critical forms-based processes by running Adobe Document Services on the highly scalable and reliable IBM WebSphere Application Server.
