Two years ago, Adobe announced that Creative Cloud was their singular platform for all innovation for creative professionals, and that Creative Suite 6 was our last planned perpetual software release. Since then, nearly 3.5 million paid members have joined Creative Cloud and are experiencing the benefits of continuous feature updates and real time innovation as it becomes available.
We are pleased to announce that Adobe is furthering their commitment to deliver software innovation to creative professionals and our education community exclusively through Adobe Creative Cloud.
As of February 28, 2015, Adobe will no longer offer Creative Suite 6 through the Cumulative Licensing Program (CLP) or the Transactional licensing Program (TLP) for our education customers. This change was already made for the commercial and government segments in May of 2014. CS6 products will remain available for purchase as electronic download on Adobe.com. However, these will be individual credit card purchases requiring individual serial numbers, and the expectation is that customers will instead move to Creative Cloud. Acrobat and other Adobe products will continue to be available through the CLP and TLP licensing programs.
This is a great opportunity to migrate to Creative Cloud. Education customers can obtain Creative Cloud memberships and subscriptions via the Value Incentive Plan (VIP), Education Enterprise Agreement (EEA), and Enterprise Term License Agreement (ETLA) purchasing programs.
Rest assured, JourneyEd.com will work closely with you to make sure the move to Creative Cloud is smooth and without disruption to your institution. If you prefer, you may still buy individual copies of CS6 on adobe.com; however, there will be no education pricing discount, and the apps have not been updated since CS6 was released almost three years ago.
As with any change, you’re likely to have questions. For answers, contact us at 877-693-7763 or visit our Adobe brand page, which includes an overview of Creative Cloud for enterprise, and other useful information.
