Adobe aims to tear down walls
Adobe has released a new offering giving marketers more control over basic design elements including advertising copy and other assets used in display ads. Its new Advertising Cloud Creative is aimed at banishing pain points that many marketers have. In announcing the move at the Adobe Summit, the firm says marketers continue to be challenged by siloed creative and media processes as well as disparate systems and platforms. By giving marketers more control, they can optimise/target their display advertising across ad sizes and make changes to their ads themselves without needing to go back to their agency or re-trafficking. Other additions are aimed at making advertising a "more connected" experience, including attribution measurement to inform media buying decisions. Keith Eadie, vice president and general manager of Adobe Advertising Cloud, says it's about "tearing down the walls between creative, data and media". See more here.
