Introducing the New Adobe Exchange for Adobe Experience Cloud: Enabling Partners to Create Better Experiences

Customer-experience technology is highly fragmented, and companies are looking for ways to bring all their different technologies together in one location. That’s why, just over one year ago, Adobe announced the Adobe Exchange partner program for Adobe Experience Cloud. The Adobe Exchange partner program is designed to cultivate and drive innovation with our ever-expanding ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs) and data partners — giving them the tools to build and market their integrations. Customers can then easily implement these integrations to increase the functionality of their Adobe solutions and create better customer experiences.
Today at Summit EMEA, we’re introducing new capabilities within our Adobe Exchange partner program that will not only help partners maximize their efforts, but also create better experiences for our tech-partner community.
New Adobe Exchange Program Website
We’re unveiling a new and improved Adobe Exchange partner program website for Adobe Experience Cloud — complete with content that caters to the needs of ISVs. This new website gives our partners access to the information and resources they need to build and go to market around integrated solutions. In addition to details on how to join the program, new features include a news section (to keep our community up to date), a program-benefits page, and additional resources that will provide partners with the technical integration details needed to ensure the highest-quality integrations.
New Adobe Exchange Marketplace
An updated version of our Adobe Exchange marketplace — Adobe’s cross-cloud marketplace for third-party integrations, applications, and solutions — will launch in August 2017. The new site will make it easy for Adobe customers to discover integrations that extend the values of their existing Adobe investments. Updates to the Adobe Exchange marketplace include:
- Consolidated listings of integrations — for Adobe Experience Cloud, Adobe Creative Cloud, and Adobe Document Cloud — that were previously spread listed in various locations (Creative Cloud and Document Cloud solutions will be added in subsequent releases);
- Richer content and metadata available for each listing;
- For the first time — simplified self-service management and control of content for partners’ listings;
- Improved search and browsing tools; and a
- Less complicated ability to acquire and launch applications.
Partners will have the opportunity to start creating content for their listings after Summit EMEA.
