Yesterday, Adobe announced its public tender offer to acquire Switzerland-based Day Software for $240 Million ($USD), which is expected to close by the end of 2010. Day Software develops and sells content technologies, including CRX, a Java-based enterprise-level content repository, as well as CQ5, which can be utilized for Web Content Management, Digital Asset Management, and social collaboration.
