If you haven’t been following the buzz around the Adobe Creative Cloud, we recently announced our 1 million subscriber mark, with Enterprise adoption growing strongly. Our customers are overwhelmingly choosing subscriptions instead of perpetual model licenses, and we’ve seen very strong adoption across Government segments.
Defense, Civilian, State and Local IT procurement specialists are looking to Adobe’s ETLA (Enterprise Term License Agreement) model to keep initial costs down, shift licensing costs into the Operations/Management budget, and realize the value of Adobe’s ongoing innovations in multiscreen design and development.
One such innovation involves a new technology called “Generator” wrapped into Photoshop CC. With this integration, web and mobile UI designers can automatically, dynamically generate pre-compressed image assets directly from their Photoshop compositions without interrupting their workflow to slice, choose compression settings, and export. Here’s a video tutorial on this long-awaited breakthrough feature.
If you’re looking for Government success stories around rapid adoption of new creative technologies, be sure to register for our Adobe Government Customer Success webinar this Wednesday 10/30 at 2PM EST. During that webinar, one of Adobe’s customers at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, RI will discuss his agency’s continued adoption of bleeding-edge technology, the challenges and pitfalls involved, and their vision for cross-domain collaboration to streamline efficiencies and provide high quality of information and service to their constituents.
One of the technical challenges many agencies face involve the rapidity of CC updates currently shipping, and keeping desktops up-to-date. Also, in many government IT environments, end users of Adobe desktop software are constrained to a thin layer of bandwidth, and users are not administrators. Many clients are completely disconnected from external networks, and if they do have connectivity, their internet access outside the firewall will be closely monitored, constrained or proxied.
For Government IT and procurement personnel seeking a comprehensive overview of Creative Cloud offerings for Government, including technical deployment tips, we offer this new video and its associated slides. In the video, we discuss the specific policies around deployment that IT Directors will need to address from behind their network constraints. We also address how the rolling updates to our desktop products will help support your mission of keeping your networks secure, stable and uniform, and how to deploy those updates securely and efficiently behind your firewall.
