Why did DPS change its name to Adobe Experience Manager Mobile?
On February 22, 2016, Adobe announced a new product called Adobe Experience Manager Mobile. Part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud, this new product combines the functionality of Adobe Digital Publishing Solution (DPS) and Adobe Experience Manager Apps—plus delivers brand new capabilities—into one comprehensive mobile offering for the enterprise.

What does this mean for existing DPS customers?

The main change you’ll notice is that DPS branding and URLs will be changed in the various places:
- Product URLs have changed. For example, https://publish.adobe.com is now https://aemmobile.adobe.com. The previous URLs are redirected automatically.
- The DPS Preflight app is now called the AEM Preflight app.

With Experience Manager Mobile, design and creative teams can create mobile app content using a wide variety of sources—including fixed-layout content from Adobe InDesign or Microsoft PowerPoint, or responsive HTML content from Dreamweaver, Adobe Muse, HTML authoring tools, or content management systems (CMS) such as Adobe Experience Manager, Drupal, or WordPress. Digital Publishing Solution also supports content from editorial workflow solutions like Woodwing or Vjoon, as well as other custom CMS and editorial workflow solutions.

The Content Viewer app will remain available in app marketplaces for as long as Digital Publishing Suite is maintained in order to facilitate folio workflows.
