I’m not sure if this old news but I’ve only just come across it. Adobe has released a demonstration small scale SDP-like prototype both in Flash and AIR that they call a real time trader desktop. It has many faces and rotates like a cube which is quite a nice effect and makes a nice change from flat panes and tabs which are the default paradigm. Perhaps, as a result of the flurry of SDPs having been worked upon and released of late in the financial industry using Flash and AIR, Adobe feel they no longer need a middleman to invest in this area of consulting work and have done their own albeit as a demonstration. Although I think there’s more to consulting in this area particularly on the server side – I quite like the way they’ve published and marketed their prototype as an open product on the web with great attention to visual detail. Food for thought. Via.
