Adobe adds data-science muscle to its cloud services

New algorithms aim to help brands make better use of their data

Finding insights in an ocean of data has become one of today's most pressing business challenges, and software vendors are rushing to help. The latest is Adobe, which has added a host of algorithms in its cloud services to help brands uncover patterns and put them to work.

Adobe's Creative, Document and Marketing Cloud services already use data science to help brands hone their message to customers, and the algorithms announced Wednesday add more capabilities.

In the Marketing Cloud, for instance, a new auto-allocate capability billed as a "content traffic cop" helps marketers identify the best offers, messaging and creative materials for engaging with customers. An online retailer could use it to determine that a particular promotional video is driving the most purchases, and automatically push that video to more online visitors even as it tests other content.

Users of Adobe's Campaign tool, meanwhile, can now test predictive subject lines through a new beta program. The technology suggests which email subject line will yield the best results from a marketing campaign.

In the Creative Cloud, a new DeepFont capability is like the Shazam music-identification app but for typefaces, Adobe says --users can take a picture of a typeface and learn what it is.

In the Document cloud, new semantic-analysis capabilities allow Acrobat DC users to capture scans or images of documents, for example, and convert them to searchable and shareable PDFs.

Also on Wednesday Adobe, unveiled new advertising capabilities in its Adobe Media Optimizer product, including support for video ads and new analytics tools.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
