Adobe Launches Year in Review App

Today, we released a new 2013 Adobe Year in Review app that provides an interactive recap of Adobe’s highlights last year.  As CFO, most of the documents I oversee aren’t all that exciting – 10-K’s and 10-Q’s are important, but they aren’t bedtime reading. With this app, produced using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS), I’m finally able to tap some of the cool technology we provide to our customers to tell our own business story.

Adobe Year in Review App

The Year in Review app highlights our performance in 2013 and our vision around Creative Cloud and Adobe Marketing Cloud— including the new connections we’re making between our content creation technologies and our digital marketing solutions.

The app includes video and interactivity to bring the numbers and data to life—along with providing information about Adobe’s strategy, exciting customer case studies and our efforts with corporate social responsibility programs.

Because this is a mobile app, we’re also able to engage our stakeholders wherever they are, including customers, employees, partners, investors and analysts. Additionally, because the app is integrated with Adobe Analytics, part of Adobe Marketing Cloud, we’ll be able to see how the content and interactivity is resonating with our stakeholders.

Mark Garrett, Executive Vice President and CFO

Mark believes that bold decision-making and transparency are critical to transforming and growing a company. Under his guidance, Adobe has completed the fastest transition to a cloud-based subscription model among companies in the software industry. A “people’s CFO” with an MBA in organizational behavior, Mark is just as comfortable talking about numbers as he is about leading and developing teams. In 2015, the Silicon Valley Business Journal named him “Public Company CFO of the Year,” and Institutional Investor magazine ranked him No. 1 in the Best Software CFO category by sell-side analysts. While in college, Mark hoped to become a veterinarian, but quickly found out that accounting, not organic chemistry, was the right fit for him. If Mark were not at Adobe, he would be an architect designing buildings.
