Hello Tech Comm Professionals,
Hope you are well! I am sure many of you would have come across the announcement made by Adobe in May of this year, about the Creative products. Since this announcement was made, there has been plenty of lively discussion in the Tech Comm user community as well about the strategy of Adobe Tech Comm products.
Today, I wanted to address some of the questions that have been raised by our community and clarify our strategy going forward.
- Firstly, next version of Tech communications products will continue to have perpetual licensing. This includes all our products – FrameMaker, RoboHelp, Technical Communication Suite, FrameMaker Publishing Server and RoboHelp Server.
- Secondly, we plan to offer subscription as an additional option for our products, in addition to the perpetual licensing, so that our customers can choose the licensing option that works best for them.
- Lastly, we continue to make significant investments into our products and the team is working hard on delivering a phenomenal release. We all are really excited about the upcoming release of point products as well as Technical Communication Suite and expect it to be out in 2014.
It is our intention to provide world class products, with various purchase options to the Tech Comm user community and we will continue to honor this commitment with the next release of our products as well. Please let me know if you have any questions by typing those in the comment box below.
Have a great week ahead!
Sr. Product Manager – Adobe Technical Communication Products
