These organizations understand that AI is going to be a game-changer, even if they might not have a full understanding of how that’s going to work just yet.
In March at the Adobe Summit, I sat down with Adobe executive vice president and CTO Abhay Parasnis, and talked about a range of subjects with him including the company’s goal to build a cloud platform for the next decade — and how AI is a big part of that.
Parasnis told me that he has a broad set of responsibilities starting with the typical CTO role of setting the tone for the company’s technology strategy, but it doesn’t stop there by any means.
He also is in charge of operational execution for the core cloud platform and all the engineering building out the platform — including AI and Sensei.
Ten years down the road
The company’s transition from selling boxed software to a subscription-based cloud company began in 2013, long before Parasnis came on board.
