As Jerry mentioned in last weeks post, we have some upcoming webinars on the new Creative Cloud (CC) features, security and deployment for public sector customers. On May 21, we will talk about the new policy changes and product features for CC in the public sector. This webinar will give users some valuable insight into the changes in CC and some of the exciting new features they will want to utilize in their agencies.
Day 2 on May 22, is focused primarily for the IT staff, it will cover the policy changes, but will go more in depth into deployment, security and support options for the new CC offerings. We will also be covering the various purchasing options for CC as well.
This is a great opportunity to learn all that’s new for CC and have it focused specifically for those in government. If you were unable to attend Adobe MAX, this will be worth your time. To register or for more information, go here. Each webinar will start at 2 p.m. EST. I hope you will join Jerry and I next week online.

In the past I have written about the virtues of Creative Cloud. Today we made a great step forward in Creative Cloud for Teams. Now you may be wondering what great feature I’m going to talk about. This new software is a tool for IT administrators to use to deploy Creative Cloud Team, we call it Creative Cloud Packager.
This new software for deployment means that the IT department can now configure Creative Cloud Team to suit their organization. More specifically, an administrator for a Creative Cloud Team account, can now download directly from the application all of the Creative Cloud products and updates (regular and feature), define custom installation behavior and at the end have a native MSI or PKG that you will use with your deployment tool to install on all machines you manage.
Up until now the Creative Cloud offering really didn’t have as much relevance in the government space because it required the users to be administrators on their computers and in very few instances was this the case. This now means that Creative Cloud Team could be a viable offering for our some of our state and local agencies, as well as smaller departments in the large government organizations because now it can be deployed through standard IT deployment methodologies. For many smaller government agencies it is really great to have access to all the tools and the updates, as well as some of the services offered in Creative Cloud.
For those IT administrators who are reading this post, the following video will walk you through the Creative Cloud Packager.
