Just a footnote on parsing names:
names can be made of many words,
(OED, name) and as a unit, cannot be parsed.
The United States of America is four words.
Does grammar apply? Not really.
The unity of a name disqualifies
it from grammatical parsing--which applies
to sentences, not names. (OED, parse).
Adobe Systems is two nouns combined
into one name. There's no modifier relationship
on 'Adobe'. Much like a person's name : Hank Jones.

Regards,

Yves [not an adjective] Jeaurond :-)
