Adobe unveiled its new Flash Platform Services at the Adobe MAX conference last week, featuring the Gigya-powered services in the keynotes on both Monday and Tuesday. Adobe Flash Platform Services are online, hosted services that allow developers to add innovative capabilities to Web applications with a predictable, cost efficient deployment model. Developers, advertisers and publishers are now using Adobe Flash Platform Services to make Web applications sharable, social, and collaborative.
It was amazing to see the enthusiastic response from the thousands of developers that filled every nook of the show, and our hats are off to the fantastic team at Adobe that worked so hard to bring this important product to market. In addition to the distribution services powered by Gigya, coming soon to Flash Platform Services are social services powered by Gigya, which enable simplified implementation and management of Facebook Connect, MySpaceID, Sign in with Twitter, Y!OS, though a single API.
