San Jose-based Adobe broke into the Fortune 400 this year, jumping 54 spots as revenue and profits ballooned 24.7% and 44.9%, respectively. The Photoshop-maker’s recent shift toward cloud-based subscription–versus the sale of package-licensed software–has provided it with a more predictable revenue stream.
