Adobe on Monday said it won a three-year enterprise licensing agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense to standardize on the company's Creative Cloud and other products.

The deal, which was valued at $40.5 million, means that the Army, Air Force and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) will standardize on Adobe products. The contract was awarded to CDW's government unit, which partners with Adobe.

For the Department of Defense, the crux of the Adobe contract revolves around forms and documents via Adobe's Experience Management. The military will be able to create forms, process them and capture data via mobile devices.

As for the Creative Cloud, the military will use Adobe's software to publish marketing material and distribute them online.
