Recent Adobe research revealed that 88% of marketing and CX leaders say content demand has at least doubled over the last two years, while nearly two-thirds expect content demand will grow by five times over the next two years.

Firefly and Adobe Express for Enterprise will bring Firefly to all employees across an organization, empowering anyone to generate, edit and share standout, on-brand content quickly and easily. As part of this new offering, Adobe plans to enable businesses to be able to custom train Firefly with their own branded assets, generating content in the brand’s unique style and brand language. Additionally, powerful new Adobe Sensei GenAI services for enterprises have debuted in Customer Journey Analytics, Adobe Experience Manager and Marketo Engage, enabling businesses to dramatically accelerate productivity and deliver personalized customer experiences at scale.
