Adobe and Microsoft expand productivity partnership

Adobe and Microsoft expand productivity partnership

Microsoft will also integrate Adobe Sign into services like its workflow automation service Flow, and the Microsoft bot framework will be able to talk to Sign, too, to check on the status of an approval process, for example.

"We're thrilled that our partnership with Adobe has now grown to span our three Clouds - Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365, providing customers with the powerful integrations they need to navigate digital transformation", added Peggy Johnson, Executive Vice President, Business Development, Microsoft.

Nearly exactly a year ago, Microsoft and Adobe announced a strategic partnership around Microsoft's Azure cloud and Adobe's Marketing Cloud.

Adobe Sign for Microsoft Dynamics and SharePoint has already been rolled out, while the Adobe Sign integrations with other selected Microsoft products and the integration of Microsoft Teams with Adobe Creative Cloud will be available soon after. Microsoft Teams, on the other hand, is now the preferred solution for Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud. Microsoft Teams integration will expand to Adobe Experience Cloud in the future. Second is the Adobe Sign and Microsoft Teams, where the signature tool is to used to sign documents sent via a signature tab in the chat-based work platform. Notably, Adobe Document Cloud, along with Marketing Cloud and Creative Cloud, already run on Microsoft Azure as part of deal the companies struck almost a year ago, on September 26, 2016.


"Integration between Microsoft Office 365 and Adobe Sign will deliver fast, secure electronic signing across Office 365, including Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Outlook, so that signing documents electronically, on any device, can become an everyday experience".

In a recent announcement, Microsoft announced that it will extend this partnership even further, noting that from that point on, the company would make Adobe Sign the preferred electronic signature solution across its entire portfolio.

Paranis also teased potential opportunities in the artificial intelligence (AI) space. The two companies also expect to do a lot of joint enterprise customer engagements and campaigns.

In November 2016, Adobe took the wraps off a set of intelligent services and framework for creating and delivering digital experiences called Sensei. In August, the company unveiled Project Brainwave, a system that uses field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) from chipmaker Intel to process AI workloads in real-time.
