Adobe archived record sales.

Last week I wrote about Adobe Cloud Subscription license. In this week, according article posted on TechCrunch, Adobe had record sales in this year since changed business model from package to subscription.

Adobe’s Record Revenue Proves Successful Business Transformation Is Possible

Accidentally the article is explaining business impact of subscription with actual figure, so I was surprised to read such kind of article after i posted. At the same time, as user point of view, current Adobe Cloud monthly fee is higher than we expect or package license. I believe there is room to price down as their effort..Also profit is very important as company for the future advance. The profit will make some investment to develop new productive and beneficial function and products as basic economics. So I don’t prefer to blame the record sales itself.

Let’s keep eyes on these situation.


Subscription License for Adobe Cloud and MS Office

Major software company is shifting software license from package to subscription. As you may know, it makes those company be able to get stable revenue and prevent illegal software usage. As for Adobe Could, there is no option to select package license at this time. Personally I prefer to buy it since i can select whether upgrade or not when they released new version, and skipped some version to save money. As result, under this situation, my payment for adobe is totally increased.  I am helplessly paying monthly fee for that. 

But i noticed sometime Amazon or some online software site offers discounted annual license for Adobe. And today I found 30% off in as Cyber Monday Sale. I quickly bought it and apply issued code to my account. Then my subscription was extended to one year. I guess someone doesn’t know this approach to save annual cost. So  I summarized this finding to recommend Adobe Could user who pays monthly fee without any discount.

Actually I choose subscription license for MS Office to upgrade from 2011 to 2016 last month, just and I could do some approach. Basically MS subscription Fee is reasonable than adobe Cloud and they offers package license so far. 


Amazon Web Service

From this month, I started to use Amazon Web Service to build development environment. I feel it is quite professional service and easy to scale out server environment. If you have some experience to manage server in data center, I trust you have same feeling and will be amazed by their services.

And it makes good opportunity for all startups to prepare server without big investment and enough engineer.
So I would like to learn how to utilize AWS continually.


Google IME

The other day , Google distributed IME. It is very smooth and Comfort.

But If you ask me, Which Do you prefer ,ATOK or Google IME? and I say, I like ATOK because Google will not be able to understand Japanese culture!
