Along with the Flash Platform news, we’ve released CoCoMo, one of the coolest products at Adobe. CoCoMo is basically a framework that lets you add collaboration to any Flex application out there. It comes with a few basic components like video chat, text chat, and whiteboards, but it also includes hooks so that you can build your own real-time collaborative application.
Real-time collaboration on the web is something that I think has just barely hit it’s stride. CoCoMo uses the Flash Platform, AMF, and our various server products to enable any developer with the power to create a collaborative application. You can host it all on Adobe’s servers and we’ll take care of the hardware infrastructure for you. So basically you can now take any Flex application and add video chat, whiteboards, or your own personal collaboration requirements to it and start differentiating yourselves from customers.
This is a big, big deal. I can’t wait to see what people do with it. You can check out my interview with the CoCoMo folks on AdobeTV for more info.Tweet
