Adobe Integrates Creative and Marketing Clouds
New Digital Asset Management Offering in Adobe Experience Manager Bridges Content Creation and Delivery
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Adobe Summit, The Digital Marketing Conference — Adobe Systems Incorporated (NAS: ADBE) today announced the availability of a new Digital Asset Management (DAM) offering within its industry leading Adobe® Experience Manager, part of Adobe Marketing Cloud. Adobe has reimagined digital asset management with both marketers and creatives in mind, giving organizations truly unprecedented capabilities to bridge workflows and more easily deliver consistent, high-quality experiences anywhere and on any device.
Adobe Experience Manager DAM is deeply integrated with Adobe Creative Cloud™, which makes collaboration between marketers and creatives easier and stronger, and results in more efficient planning, production, search and global distribution of images, videos and other content. In addition, out-of-the box integration with Creative Cloud applications and comprehensive metadata support improves content quality, increases production speed, and ensures brand consistency and the ability to reuse assets.
The new offering also combines digital asset management capabilities with Adobe Scene7® for optimized video, dynamic media and personalized media delivery to the Web, tablets and smartphones, as well as in-store kiosks and displays and customized print products. This helps marketers get the most value from their digital assets by adapting and re-using them for rich mobile experiences, social sites and more.
By uniting the creation, management and delivery of all assets, marketers and content publishers can now support responsive design, which tailors the experience across devices, as well as manage the ever-increasing number of assets required to deliver the most personalized experience.
Adobe Experience Manager DAM includes:
Enterprise-grade Asset Management for creating flexible workflows, keeping multiple versions of assets, designing taxonomies, and managing metadata efficiently across organizations and external agencies.
New, touch-enabled user interface supports and streamlines creative and marketing workflows for tablet users.
Dynamic Media to serve rich experiences on demand across Web, mobile and social properties using a single set of master assets.
Video for improving engagement and conversion via marketing-centric video workflow, optimization and publishing capabilities.
Flexible Architecture that is built on open standards provides extension points to backend systems and is easy to customize.
