Today’s topics include a new version of Adobe Experience Cloud streamlining content delivery, and Lenovo entering the consumption-based data center space.
The latest version of Adobe Experience Manager, released Feb. 13, now helps brands automatically deliver the right content to the right individual. It leverages Sensei, the company’s artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, to better manage and automate the delivery of personalized web content.
Adobe also announced the general availability of Adobe Asset Link, the long-promised connection to Creative Cloud and Adobe tools like Photoshop, Illustrator and inDesign, making it easier to pull content in from different sources.
Kevin Lindsay, director of product marketing at Adobe, said the system gives organizations the ability to easily search and access massive amounts of fully approved assets.
Lenovo officials last week unveiled TruScale Infrastructure Services, an offering enabling customers to use hardware and services either on-premises or at another site without having to buy the equipment.
Laura Laltrello, vice president and general manager of services at Lenovo’s Data Center Group, said that the company’s “offering can be applied to any configuration that meets the customer’s needs—whether storage-rich, server-heavy, hyperconverged or high-performance compute—and can be scaled as business dictates.”
Company officials point to multiple benefits of the program, from reducing upfront costs and the ability to scale the capacity up or down based on need to Lenovo shouldering the responsibility for both the equipment and the services. Enterprises can choose the equipment they want to run and add more capacity or hardware if demand grows.
The program, which comes with a monthly fee, also includes a real-time dashboard that shows everything from usage to billing. Training and workload migration services are also available.
