NERCOMP and SHI Annual Conference Session Slides

With the eventual migration of all Adobe software deployment being limited to the Admin Console, we wanted to share what we hope are some compelling reasons to move your end users to the Admin Console as soon as possible:

AVOID SERIAL KEY DISRUPTION – In order to avoid future disruption with serial license key expirations, we encourage you to move your non-lab machine deployment for FTE to the Admin Console as soon as possible.  In the future, Adobe is looking to provide an Admin Console solution for lab machines as well.

MISSING OUT ON SERVICES AND SOFTWARE – There are software and services included in your enterprise agreement with Adobe with benefits only fully realized with deployment in the Admin Console.  Several institutions in your area have made the move and have been able to share the extra software and services with their end users.

USER SYNCH TOOL – We also have a Premium Onboarding team ready to assist in helping implement our User Sync Tool which simplifies user software access management by IT departments.  This service is currently included in your agreement.

SUPPORT – Lastly, in the Support tab of your Admin Console, you may schedule Expert Sessions anytime for assisting in software deployment or access issues.  These are also included in your agreement and are currently unlimited.

How may Adobe assist in helping your FTE get moved to the Admin Console?  Let us know when we may have a call to discuss?

December 1, 2017 old Adobe Serial License Keys Will Expire

On Friday, December 1st there are some older Creative Cloud serial numbers that will be expiring.  To avoid software access disruption, please do the following as soon as possible:

  1. Move all faculty/staff users to the Admin Console.
  2. Update all lab/library machines to the latest serial license key.

The most current serial license key may be found at the Licensing Website (https://licensing.adobe.com) searching by the ID 53512264.  The most recent key is labeled SN213 VIDEO and has the ending of -7660.  This serial license key will last through 2019 (through the end of the current ETLA agreement).  If you don’t see the anything pull up from searching by the ID above, notify Steven Watson (contact information below) and he can work with Adobe to have you added.
