Adobe and Microsoft expand partnership to include e-signatures and collaboration
Adobe and Microsoft have announced they are expanding their collaboration with the two companies becoming each other’s preferred providers on a variety of use cases.
Adobe Sign will become the preferred e-signature solution across the Microsoft portfolio, while Microsoft Teams while be the preferred collaboration services for Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud, and Adobe will make Azure its preferred cloud platform for Adobe Sign. The overall portfolio includes the 100 million monthly commercial active users of Microsoft Office 365.
The two companies announced the ‘first set of joint solutions designed to help enterprises transform their customer experiences’ at the Adobe Summit event in Las Vegas in March. At the time, these included campaign orchestration using Adobe Experience Cloud and Microsoft Azure, Dynamics 365 and Power BI. The companies also said they will be “collaborating on an industry standard to define and unify the language for marketing, sales and services data needed to deliver digital experiences consistently at scale.”
“Adobe and Microsoft are working together to redefine what the modern enterprise experience looks like with collaboration, identity, data and intelligence at the core,” said Abhay Parasnis, Adobe chief technology officer. “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.”
“The most successful companies today are relentlessly focused on helping employees be more effective. Productivity suffers when work requires multiple applications that don’t interact,” said Alan Lepofsky, VP and principal analyst at Constellation Research. “The integration of team collaboration, electronic signatures and creative content provides customers with huge efficiency gains, and paves the way for how people will get work done in the future.”
