SAP has revealed that it is to bundle Adobe’s Acrobat and PDF software with its mySAP.com eCommerce software. Adobe’s Acrobat and PDF software is used in the creation and distribution of electronic documents. SAP will integrate Adobe’s document applications into its own software so that information stored in SAP applications can be automatically converted into electronic documents. Adobe is also hoping to release server-based versions of its Acrobat software.
The deal signals Adobe’s intention to break into the enterprise software market and extend further into its core business segments. The deal follows the release of Adobe’s AlterCast server software and the acquisition of the Canadian software firm, Accelio.
