Adobe publishes and contributes to a number of open standards. These standards guarantee the interoperability of our products and solutions.
With the Experience Data Model (XDM), Adobe defines one interoperable language that makes integration, data portability, and innovation easy.
The Portable Document Format, originally published by Adobe, is now the ISO 32000-1 standard.
Adobe’s Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) is a file labeling technology that lets you embed metadata into files themselves during the content creation process.
The Experience Business speaks one Language: XDM
Experience Data Model (XDM) is the common language for the experience business. Applications leverage XDM to make information coming from multiple sources — within the Adobe Experience Platform, Adobe solutions, or your own — immediately understandable and actionable by multiple applications. Enabling you to deliver the right message, offer, experience, and content at the right time. To do this, one requires a common understanding of the journey of people and their assets across multiple touchpoints both online (website, mobile, advertising) and offline (call center, customer support, CRM).
XDM is a data model you can introduce and accept into your own customer data model. Adobe has materialized XDM in the Adobe Experience Platform for a native understanding of data (context, audiences, and metrics) and content (assets and channels).
Adobe’s Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP) is a file labeling technology that lets you embed metadata into files themselves during the content creation process. With an XMP enabled application, your workgroup can capture meaningful information about a project (such as titles and descriptions, searchable keywords, and up-to-date author and copyright information) in a format that is easily understood by your team as well as by software applications, hardware devices, and even file formats. Best of all, as team members modify files and assets, they can edit and update the metadata in real time during the workflow.
With XMP, desktop applications and back-end publishing systems gain a common method for capturing, sharing, and leveraging this valuable metadata. Adobe has taken the “heavy lifting” out of metadata integration, offering content creators an easy way to embed meaningful information about their projects and providing industry partners with standards-based building blocks to develop optimized workflow solutions.
