Over the last couple of years the digital landscape has grown dramatically. With the introduction of tools like the iPad, Kindle, and a whole host of e-readers and tablets, it is estimated that 57% of consumers expect to purchase one of these types of devices during the course of the next three years. Add to the basic capabilities of these readers, the ability to print, watch video, as well as integrated feature interactivity, if you want to sell to this market you need the tools that will provide the most bang in one complete package. That is the one of the goals of the new Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.
Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is targeted at the professional and enterprise level entity that is looking to create first class publications such as rich digital magazines and newspapers that are similar to WIRED Reader and The New Yorker. It contains five enterprise level services that are used in combination with InDesign CS5 to provide a complete end-to-end workflow.
Another goal of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite is to provide extended market reach through the use of an array of mobile devices to engage readers by providing feature rich layouts and interactive features, provide flexible commerce models to sell both single issues as well as subscriptions, give you the tools to create multi-platform authoring, multi-channel monetization, the ability to attract advertisers, and provide immediate business insights through analysis.
There are two parts to the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite. The first part is through the use of Adobe Creative Suite CS5.5 which added a whole host of features aimed to digital publishing – especially with regard to Adobe InDesign CS5.5.
