KUALA LUMPUR: Adobe and Microsoft Corp are expanding their strategic alliance to increase workforce productivity and drive more efficient business processes.
The companies recently delivered their first set of joint solutions to help enterprises transform their customer experience with Adobe Experience Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics.
Adobe Sign, the e-signature service in Adobe Document Cloud, is now Microsoft’s preferred e-signature solution across the company’s portfolio, including the 100 million monthly commercial active users of Microsoft Office 365.
Meanwhile, Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Microsoft Office 365, has become the preferred collaboration service for Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud. Adobe will also make Microsoft Azure its preferred cloud platform for Adobe Sign.
Together, Adobe and Microsoft will ensure individuals and teams can efficiently collaborate, communicate and drive decision-making across multiple devices.
Beyond the partnership, the companies are set to explore opportunities for collaboration on artificial intelligence, analytics and intelligent document automation, taking productivity in the cloud to the next level.
“Adobe and Microsoft are working together to redefine what the modern enterprise experience looks like with collaboration, identity, data and intelligence at the core.
“Together, we will develop integrated cloud services with best-in-class solutions like Adobe Sign and Office 365 that help businesses digitally transform, while delivering great experiences to their customers,” said Adobe chief technology officer Abhay Parasnis.
The first integrations resulting from this partnership are expected to be available to customers in the coming weeks.
