Apple Enterprise App Store & DPS

We are a fairly small ad agency with a large corporate client that has an Apple Enterprise App Store they use to distribute iPad apps to their employees. The marketing rep we work with has asked us to create a brochure along with an iPad app using the same content as the brochure. Our first thought was that this would be a great way for us to dive in and learn the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and use the Single Edition version for our client app. But, despite our best efforts, we haven't been able to get a definitive answer as to whether or not the DPS Single Edition product can create an app that can be distributed with an Apple Enterprise App Store. An IT guy from our client said they need an .ipa file along with a plist file and the app has to be signed with a certificate that allows distribution of apps without the App Store. No idea what all that means but I need to find out if we can do all of that with DPS Single Edition. Thoughts anyone?

Look, I'm not trying to get frustrated, but no matter how you ask the question, the answer is the same. There is no such thing as an enterprise "store." What there is, is the enterprise developer's program, which allows you create an distribution .ipa file, that you can host somewhere (behnind a username and password security portal) for users to download outside of the store.
Here is the Adobe help article explaining how it's done, but again, it can't be done with Single Edition. The license doesn't allow for it. The best you can do with Single Edition is distribute it to 100 iPads by side loading it after provisioning the iPads via the Apple Developer portal. http://helpx.adobe.com/digital-publishing-suite/help/creating-enterprise-signed-viewer-app .html
And sorry for getting frustrated, but I answered your question twice and I really do this every day as part of my career. Your question is one that comes up a lot as it would seem like private distribution would be simple, but because of the licensing restrictions, the enterprise license is the only license that will allow the creatation of an enterprise iOS developer signed application.
