Tuesday, April 08, 2003
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 7 -- Agile Software Corporation, a leading provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, today announced that it is teaming with Adobe Systems Incorporated, the leader in network publishing, to deliver enterprise PLM solutions. The alliance improves the usability of the product record and leverages intellectual property across the supply chain. Together the two companies will make it easier to share, review and archive PDF files created from a variety of sources, including specialized software applications from Agile's suite of applications. Now companies that rely heavily on outsourcing can more effectively manage review processes and quickly respond to changing market and customer demands. "By leveraging Adobe Acrobat technology, together we create a compelling solution to effectively manage the product lifecycle across the enterprise," said Chris Wong, executive vice president of products and technology, Agile Software. "The integration of Adobe Acrobat with the Agile PLM platform will allow Agile and Adobe customers to collaborate on, control, and securely manage their intellectual property and product lifecycle processes inside and outside the four walls of the enterprise. Now, our customers can ensure that global assets are leveraged and profits are maximized." "PLM is an important part of our enterprise strategy," said Ivan Koon, senior vice president, ePaper Business Unit at Adobe. "By teaming with Agile, a market leader in PLM, Adobe will be able to deliver solutions that more effectively enable companies to control and manage their product lifecycle processes, and ultimately improve profitability."
