From Gartner Research:
On 31 January 2007, Adobe announced the acquisition of Antepo, an enterprise instant messaging (IM) company with presence capabilities. The Antepo technologies will be integrated into the Adobe Acrobat software family, which includes Acrobat Professional and Acrobat Connect. With Antepo, Adobe gains a presence engine which could potentially be tied to IP telephony infrastructure, federates with multiple IM networks and runs on Windows and Linux.
The problem is that when I think Adobe, I think PDFs with aÂ little lock on them. I think documents where it is near impossible to cut and paste. I don’t think collaboration.Â
