Is HTML5 Bringing About The Demise Of Adobe’s Creative Suite?
Web developers are beginning to utilize HTML5 more and more now a days, which is reducing the popularity of Adobe’s Flash. Many analysts believe that unless Adobe makes some very strong and start moves in the near future, this revelation could significantly hurt their number one revenue producer, which is Adobe Creative Suite (CS).
CS is a collection of some of the finest software products ever created that enable web developers to design and build web pages. These include the iconic Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Flash, and Acrobat to mention but a few.
David Hilal, of FBR Capital Markets recently went on record saying, “We believe the company’s flagship offering, Creative Suite, is losing its ability to drive Adobe’s business and we don’t see much to materially offset this.”
The fact of the matter is that the internet is constantly changing, improving, and upgrading whenever a more beneficial technology is introduced. For a company to maintain the lofty position Adobe has for so long, they must always be on the cutting edge of these technological advancements.
Adobe’s software engineers are considered second to none in the industry. This is but one of the many challenges they have confronted over the years that has threatened the dominate position they hold in this field.
Betting against them, is like betting that the NY Yankees will not have a good baseball team this season. Only time will tell the final outcome of this highly intriguing story, but if you cannot have confidence in Adobe, what technology company can you have confidence in?
