Adobe can trace its roots back to 1982, when John Warnock and Charles Geschke founded the company after quitting Xerox (XRX) PARC to develop and sell the PostScript page description language. Among the many major landmarks in the firm’s history are the introduction of PDF and its Adobe Acrobat software in 1993; the acquisition of its main rival Macromedia in a stock swap in 2005, and the release of Adobe Media Player in 2008.
Presently, the company’s activity is split into three segments: Digital Marketing and Print, Digital Media, and Publishing. The Digital Media highlight product is Creative Cloud, a service that allows users to update Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and almost all other creative products developed by the business. The company dominates the market with programs like Photoshop and Illustrator – and with the move to cloud, this dominance is translating into growing revenue.
Adobe’s usage statistics are staggering. Over 200 billion PDFs are opened every year in Acrobat and Acrobat Reader, and Adobe Experience Cloud processes over 155 trillion transactions each year.
