There is a very revealing article on the New York Times website about the last events of the last year and the future for Adobe. Whatever else, people will continue to produce content and with PDF, Flash and Photoshop, Adobe provides the key ingredients for many people. The challenge is to see how they respond to this opportunity.
This week also sees a big Adobe conference (Adobe MAX), so there are lots of interesting new developments appeearing. Hot on the heels of Acrobat X, we also have an online cloud service to create and publish content (project Rome) and projects to bring more sophisticated advertising to Flash, keeping it competitive with other solutions.
Adobe has a strong entrenched position and lots of ideas so I think it has a potentially promising future – what do you think?
