Like a lot of other things in and around the internet have gained popularity, so have cloud-based storage as well as applications — which makes things easier and faster for the users — and Adobe’s focus in the region has translated into a success story for them in India.

With over 5,200 employees working in two of its centres in the country in Noida and Bangalore, the research and development labs produce a significant portion of global innovations in the cloud-ecosystem

“Adobe’s business in India has transformed tremendously in the last one year and we are seeing the growth trajectory go up across verticals including education, government, the Banking, Financial services and Insurance sector, and retail,” Kulmeet Bawa, Managing Director for India and South Asia, Adobe, told IANS in an interview.

“We have secured sixth rank in ‘Great Places to Work Surveys 2017’ which is testimony to the rich employee experience we provide to our workforce. Going ahead, I am confident that our success story will only become stronger in India,” Bawa added.

Adobe achieved an unprecedented record quarter earning in Q2 of 2017 with a revenue of $1.77 billion with products such as Experience Cloud, Creative Cloud and Document Cloud contributing to the earnings.

Adobe has also started investing in other new technologies like machine learning, artificial intelligence and virtual reality.

“There are several players in the market that are going after artificial intelligence but as far as Adobe is concerned, we would rather play at the other extreme, wherein we would have a deeply domain specialised AI rather than a generalist AI tool,” Bawa said.

Adobe and Microsoft are also collaborating together to offer customers with more automated and intelligent software.
