What do Adobe recent announcements mean for Adobe Connect?
By Guillaume Privat, Director, Adobe Connect
On November 8 2011, Adobe held its annual financial meeting where our executives discussed our 2012 strategy. Two items discussed were i) the focusing of Adobe resources on two key growth opportunities, Digital Media and Digital Marketing and ii) how Adobe will be reducing its investment in Flash Player for mobile.
You may be wondering what both of these announcements mean for the Adobe Connect business.
First, while Adobe is realigning its resources around two key growth opportunities, the Adobe Connect business will continue to further product innovation for customers in key verticals.
Second, Adobe also announced it was reducing its investment in Adobe Flash for mobile (in-browser Flash experience on mobile). This does not have an impact on Adobe’s Connect mobile strategy. Our strategy with Adobe Connect Mobile has been from the start to deliver our mobile meeting experience via native applications rather than via a browser as we believe apps provide the best mobile experience. Last week, we launched our latest version of Adobe Connect Mobile 1.7.5 and are already hard at work on our next release.
Adobe remains committed to delivering the best web conferencing solution to our customers.
