Susquehana analyst Derrick Wood is optimistic about the future of Adobe and points to the company's transition to a cloud based delivery model as a "springboard" for Adobe to become "one of the fastest growing large cap companies in software."

With the completion of this transition, Wood sees Adobe as being able to generate 1)faster innovation 2) higher utilization 3) a more efficient sales model and 4) an expanding total addressable market. By 2016, Wood models that Adobe will be larger in the cloud than Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM) is today and have "substantially healthier" operating margins.
