"Adobe has a long-standing relationship with Cognifide in delivering exceptional experience-driven projects for Europe's biggest brands," said Peter Ford, Head of EMEA Partners and Alliances at Adobe Systems Europe.

Cognifide's clients include Virgin Media, GSK, RBS, John Lewis, Shell, and Roche as well as the world's leading companies from financial services, life sciences, media & entertainment, and retail.
"In this new digital economy, brands that can leverage digital experiences to generate revenue and win over new customers are going to be the most successful," said Abid Khan, Director, Solution Design, Technology & Transformation, Virgin Media, who is currently implementing a platform using Elastic Path and Adobe Experience Manager. "Having commerce and experience management under one unifying platform will help us deliver a superior experience for our customers," Khan said.
The new partnership is part of Elastic Path's expanding partnership strategy, which seeks to build the industry's most extensive partner network in Europe, APAC, and the Americas.
Elastic Path Edition for Adobe Experience Manager brings sophisticated, enterprise-grade merchandising, monetization, and customer account management features directly into the familiar Adobe Experience Manager authoring environment, complementing its existing capabilities. It's the industry's most powerful solution for delivering experience-driven commerce solutions without the complexity and headaches associated with other commerce systems.
"When we released our new commerce product for Adobe Experience Manager at Adobe Summit, we knew the market would react positively but what we've seen so far has exceeded expectations," said Matt Dion, Vice President Marketing, Elastic Path. "Analysts are fielding more calls than ever from leading companies looking into the Elastic Path solution. It's been tremendous."
