As strategic partners, Adobe always looks forward to Microsoft Ignite to hear the latest announcements, connect with customers, and share some of what we’ve been working on together with Microsoft.

This year we are especially proud to attend as 2020 Microsoft Alliance Global ISV Partner of the Year.

We also have a full slate of new and improved integrations with Microsoft applications - enabling richer collaboration and streamlined productivity, new secure e-signature scenarios, and automated complex document workflows. We are excited to share these innovations at Ignite.

This is a snapshot of some of the many new Adobe + Microsoft experiences that we are looking forward to launching in the coming weeks:

I. Extending collaboration through Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams is a powerful collaboration tool used by over 75 million users every day. But the potential of Teams goes far beyond videoconferencing and chat. Adobe recognizes the vision Microsoft has for Teams as a central hub for productivity and is pleased to announce innovations that extend these capabilities with e-signature, powerful document workflows, and creative collaboration.

II. Transforming document workflows with Microsoft Power Platform, Dynamics 365, and SharePoint.

Microsoft Power Automate enables efficient automation of repetitive processes. With Adobe Document Cloud and Adobe Sign integrations, organizations can automate complex enterprise document workflows with secure e-signature transactions.

Adobe Sign already powers Dynamics 365 Sales with integrated e-signature workflows - dramatically reducing cycle times, improving productivity, and cutting costs. Updated and extended functionality supports additional scenarios for Dynamics users.

When the process of editing content is performed in a separate program from where files are stored, such as Microsoft SharePoint or OneDrive, it creates one more time-consuming step for employees. Adobe is eliminating that extra step.

Finally, increasing end user productivity by searching for documents from one place.

We are excited to be sharing all of this new innovation at Ignite and look forward to making these new integrations generally available in the coming weeks.
