Remember when getting a link from Adobe was foremost on your mind? Seeing as the home page is a PR 10, online businesses swarmed Abobe, making “click here” a phenomenon. Now, Adobe is riding the trends again with its very own cloud services.
Adobe Cloud Services
Called the Creative Cloud Subscription Service:
is a subscription service that provides a combination of cloud storage and collaboration services to allow easier content collaboration and sharing on any device, in any place.
Not only do users receive the benefit of accessing projects anywhere and from any device, Adobe has created a new community for cloud users. Each subscriber will get a personal profile page which will allow users to share ideas, content and inspiration. This is one of the huge benefits of cloud computing services.
Users will be able to filter content by topic, font, colors, etc. This is a more personalized cloud service which will enable users to get the most of the service. By offering cloud only apps, Adobe is utilizing the “only we can get this” model to entice new business. Making a service available to only select people has long been a great way to drum up new clients.
The new tablet apps, including a portable version of Adobe’s marquee app, Photoshop, have put an emphasis on bringing together all kinds of creative types. Proto allows customers to mock up websites quickly using gesture controls, which, using Creative Cloud, can then be imported into Dreamweaver to give a head start to the actual coding. All of the elements – divs, buttons, headers and videos – are present in blank forms, allowing website development to skip a few development steps.
The fact that the cloud apps will allow for easy portability and release of projects makes this an exciting venture for Adobe. Imagine working on a document or photo with anyone from around the world. This gives each person the accessability needed to truly encompass global perspective.
Plans and pricing should be released for Adobe’s Creative Cloud in November 2011. Even if you are a rookie Adobe photoshop or business suite user, you should seriously consider jumping on the cloud computing services that are about to be offered. It will only enhance your projects and visibility.
