Enterprise customers across EMEA are required to move to Named User Deployment and to adopt the Services aspect of the Adobe DCE and CCE products as serialized based software is reaching a point where it will no longer be supported by Adobe.
The initial part of the process starts internally where customers are assessed either by yourself, by management and / or by Adobe Customer Success Managers which are expected to nominate customers based on their type of contract, their motivation and their readiness.
Customer Success Managers are always very busy managing lots of different subjects across many customers. Also, some customers may be going through contract renewals, going through changes or have concerns around data privacy and security.
Of course, whilst these aspects need to be appreciated, Named User Deployment is one of the major drives of Adobe.
