Pop quiz!

Adobe Systems, Inc.:

  1. Makes software for publishing professionals
  2. Has a venture capital arm
  3. Makes forms-processing software with an XML backbone
  4. All of the above

I knew about A and B, but C was news to me. The LiveCycle products (which come from Adobe’s acquisition of Accelio a few years ago) are really very interesting. Take a look here:

End users use a form displayed in Acrobat Reader to enter information. The contents of the form is then submitted as XML, which then goes into some sort of processing flow. Applications include things like online mortgage applications, billing, and much more.
