"By embracing Amazon Web Services to power this offering, Adobe combines its comprehensive enterprise solution with a cloud environment that knocks down barriers to productivity for enterprise developers worldwide,” said Kumar Vora (pictured), vice president and general manager for LiveCycle at Adobe, as the company recently announced the availability of Adobe LiveCycle ES Developer Express software - a full version of Adobe LiveCycle ES hosted in the Amazon Web Services cloud computing environment.
“Adobe continues to push the boundaries when supporting its enterprise developer community,” said Adam Selipsky, vice president of product management and developer relations for Amazon Web Services. "We are excited to see Adobe extend to its customers the vast potential for unlocking productivity by providing access to enterprise-scale environments in the cloud by offering developer access to its comprehensive LiveCycle ES solution via Amazon Web Services," he added.
Adobe LiveCycle ES is a server solution that, according to Adobe, "combines data capture, information assurance, document output, process management and content services to help organizations in numerous industries create and deliver rich applications that reduce paperwork, accelerate decision-making."
The solutions, says Adobe, also helps ensure regulatory compliance. The company announcement about taking LiveCycle into the cloud continues:
"Using the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) technologies, Adobe’s offering provides a virtual, self-contained development environment where enterprise developers can prototype, develop, and test Adobe LiveCycle ES applications without needing to install and configure Adobe LiveCycle ES themselves. With Adobe LiveCycle ES Developer Express, Adobe LiveCycle ES applications are pre-configured as ready to run server instances on the Amazon EC2 server. This can help reduce the time required to boot new server instances to minutes, allowing enterprise developers to quickly begin testing and modifying applications. Developers can effectively bullet-proof their applications without having to invest in a development environment or test lab. "
LiveCycle ES supports a broad set of platforms, Adobe notes.
