Adobe and Microsoft have recently presented their first set of collaborative solutions , enabling companies to transform their customer experience into Adobe Experience Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics.
The companies are now expanding their strategic cooperation to improve employee productivity and the efficiency of business processes. From today, Adobe Sign, digital signature player in Adobe Document Cloud, is the main cloud-based digital signature solution within the Microsoft product portfolio. This includes Microsoft 365 that has 100 million active business users per month.
In addition, Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workplace in Microsoft Office 365, is now the preferred collaboration solution within Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud. Adobe, in addition to product integrations, also makes Microsoft Azure the most important cloud platform for Adobe Sign. Together, Adobe and Microsoft ensure that individual users and teams can collaborate effectively, communicate, and decide on different devices.
Adobe and Microsoft, the leaders in document and productivity software, deliver solutions like integrated desktop tools, innovative mobile apps and cloud-based services. In addition to expanding the partnership, the two companies continue to explore the possibilities of artificial intelligence, analytics and intelligent document automation, with the aim of further improving productivity in the cloud.
The first integrations that result from this collaboration are expected to be available to customers in the coming weeks. These are the following integrations:
