Last week, Adobe continued their arc toward a team social layer for designers sharing Adobe’s tools in the cloud. Creative Cloud for teams brings together centralized account provisioning along with team-based sharing and collaboration. As Adobe’s Yashodan said on the Creative Cloud Team blog:
Creative Cloud for teams also lets you share files and collaborate closely with colleagues inside or outside of your organization. Get feedback on your latest project, add and view comments, and sync files seamlessly between devices, all while leveraging 100GB of storage per user. Lastly, for those of you looking to solve in-depth product or workflow questions, each member gets two one-on-one, deep-dive support sessions with Adobe product experts. This is above and beyond the free getting-started support offered with an individual membership.
Creative Cloud for teams starts at $69.95 per seat per month.
Note that Adobe recently release Creative Cloud Connection, a Dropbox-like file sync tool that runs on Windows or Mac.
Creative Cloud for teams is a great example of a vertical social solution: extremely integrated with a set of tools for a particular domain of work — in this case design, using Adobe’s tool set — and leveraging the increasingly common design metaphors the social workforce have come to expect because of more horizontal solutions, like Yammer, Jive, and IBM Connections.
