CDW-G and the Defense Department have signed a three-year, $40.5 million agreement for the company to offer Adobe products to 2.6 million personnel at the Army, Air Force and Defense Information Systems Agency.
The joint enterprise license agreement covers subscriptions to products such as Acrobat Pro, Experience Manager Document Services and Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions, DISA said Friday.
“DISA is in discussions with other vendors to pursue additional JELAs in partnership with the military services, ” said Dave Bennett, DISA chief information officer.
“The JELA is a best practice approach to answering enterprise software requirements for the DoD and joint operations, ” said Lt. Gen. Michael Basla, the Air Force’s CIO and information dominance chief.
Basla added the branch aims to save $16.6 million over the next three years and use online forms for databases.
“The Army will begin converting all its forms to the Portable Document Format, ” said Michael Krieger, the Army’s deputy CIO.
DISA sought to acquire a cloud platform that could be installed and operated as desktop software with file storage on the local device, the agency said.
