Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise now available under VIP

Great news for enterprise customers wanting to move to Adobe Creative Cloud. Adobe’s enterprise-specific version, Creative Cloud for enterprise, is now available under the Value Incentive Plan (VIP), offering business customers advanced content protection, deployment and access control – all through a flexible licensing programme.

Here’s everything you need to know about what you get in Adobe Creative Cloud for enterprise, how it stacks up against Creative Cloud for teams, the different licensing options, and that all-important information – how much it’s going to cost you…

What is Creative Cloud for enterprise?

Just as Creative Cloud for teams is tailored towards creative teams, and Creative Cloud for education is the option for educational institutions, Creative Cloud for enterprise has been specifically designed for enterprise organisations. You of course get access to all the top creative apps you’d expect, including Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and the rest, but also some nifty enterprise-only features.

It includes all the necessary licence management, deployment and content protection capabilities required to safeguard your organisation’s valuable creative assets, and it’s now available under the VIP programme, so you can access all these features without being tied into a multi-term contract.

Is Creative Cloud for enterprise for me?

If you have a dedicated IT resource and are looking to streamline management and have more control over your environment – including identifying and authenticating users, and protecting assets and documents – then Creative Cloud for enterprise is going to be ideal for you. Already a Creative Cloud for teams customer? If you want to upgrade to the enterprise version and receive all those extra features, you’ll just need to wait until your renewal window (30 days before and after the anniversary date).

What do I get?

As mentioned, with Creative Cloud for enterprise you get everything available in Creative Cloud for teams (essential creative apps, automatically updated at no extra cost, along with connected mobile apps, cloud storage, and online collaborative tools and services), plus:

Advanced licence management

– Integrate with existing corporate identity system single sign-on (SSO).

– Remove users or reassign licences individually or by group.

– Automatically remove users who leave the company when federated ID (SSO) is enabled.

Advanced security

– User authentication via federated ID (SSO) or Enterprise ID.

– Dedicated encryption key for at-rest assets (with domain claiming).

– Ownership of assets stored in the cloud.

Ability to turn on/off cloud services

– Limit non-core services for certain users or groups.

Enterprise-grade support

– Dedicated onboarding call.

– 24/7 support for IT and end users.

– Ability to open and track support cases.

– Unlimited expert services sessions.

How does buying under VIP compare to ETLA?

Creative Cloud for enterprise is available through either a VIP (Value Incentive Plan) or ETLA (Enterprise Term Licence Agreement).

Upgrading your Vectorworks Evaluation Licence to a Professional Licence

Upgrading your Vectorworks Evaluation Licence to a Professional Licence

Vectorworks KnowledgeBase has released this guide to upgrading your Evaluation Licence to a Professional one. Simply follow the instructions:

If you have purchased the full Designer with Renderworks version of Vectorworks and your trial has not expired, go to Part A. If your trial has expired or you purchased a different set of modules (such as Architect, Landmark, Spotlight and/or Renderworks) go to Part B.

A) If your trial has not yet expired…

During the 30-day Evaluation period, you may at any time decide to purchase Vectorworks. Upon doing this, you will be sent a new serial number, which will look similar to this:

E6XUSS-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-G01ABC

To enter this new serial number in your already installed copy of Vectorworks, go to Tools > Options > Vectorworks Preferences (see below).

Under the Session tab, choose Serial Numbers. Click the EVAL serial number and choose Remove, afterwards choose Add and enter your new serial number. Press Add again when complete. You should see your new serial number and activated products listed to the right:

Restart Vectorworks and you’ll find that your copy will now be a professional and will no longer expire.

B) If you purchased a different set of modules than you used during the evaluation…

You will have to uninstall Vectorworks completely and then reinstall with your new serial number:
