Microsoft and Adobe are taking steps to strengthen their relationship with new commitments around systems including Microsoft Azure, Teams, and the Adobe Sign e-signature service.

Today's announcement focuses on workforce productivity alliances. Microsoft outlined the key components in a statement:

Beginning today, Adobe Sign, the market-leading 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. In addition, Microsoft Teams, the new chat-based workspace in Microsoft Office 365, is now the preferred collaboration service for Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud. In addition to product integrations, Adobe will make Microsoft Azure its preferred cloud platform for Adobe Sign. 

Adobe Sign integration with Office 365 will extend to Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, and Outlook. Sign will also integrate with Teams (see top image) to add a tab to send documents for signature and a bot that allows team members to manage and track documents .

The integration between Microsoft Teams and Adobe Creative Cloud and Stock aims to boost Adobe customers' collaboration options. Teams will expand to Adobe Experience Cloud in the future, according to Microsoft.
