Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams
Saw the announcements and waiting to hear what this will really cost us. We paid Adobe $4,700 for software assurance plan in January, I guess that was money wasted. Adobe list prices for Creative Cloud will increase that cost to $20,000/year. But I am not going to panic until I hear from MEI what CC will actually cost us. I am concerned that it will be a major increase and include features we don't want, such as cloud storage.
I think Creative Cloud will be a major win for some people. But I keep thinking of Verizon. I went for years on an old Verizon cell phone plan that was no longer offered. When I needed to replace a phone they told me that I would have to move to a more expensive plan, but look they said, you get more minutes. I don't use even half the minutes in my old plan, I told them I was moving to AT&T. They then offered me a special legacy plan that was the same price as my old plan.
So two lessons
- Prices go up and they justify it by giving you stuff that you might not want.
- If you complain you may be able to avoid the price hike.
