Adobe has been moving its software to the cloud for years, but the company announced it is finally brining one of its last holdouts to the cloud: Adobe Experience Manager.
Adobe Experience Manager is a content management system that helps companies design, build and manage websites. Unlike much of Adobe’s software, however, Experience Manager was still based on legacy software that required large monolithic updates and slow patch times, rather than the benefits of cloud-based software and its continuous delivery approach.
“Adobe Experience Manager as a Cloud Service supercharges organizations’ abilities to create, manage and deliver more campaigns, digital assets and experiences faster than ever before,” said Loni Stark, senior director of strategy and product marketing. “It creates a compelling offer for mid-size companies and enterprises that are increasingly transforming to adopt advanced digital tools but need more simplicity and flexibility to support their changing business models.”
The move to the cloud is already paying off for Adobe’s early adopters.
“Early results from mid-market to large enterprise companies using the application show a 50% faster ingestion time, a 40% increase in administrative efficiency, zero downtime resulting from regularly scheduled updates and an over 20% surge in author productivity.”
