Adobe has released its new document cloud at the just concluded Microsoft Business Applications Summit in California. Adobe said that the new document cloud would make it easier for users to work faster and smarter with security at the core.

The company said that the new cloud solution and the partnership with Microsoft would provide newer benefits to its customers.

Adobe will integrate its solution, the Abode Sign, into the Microsoft Power Platform. This could help users create custom Power Apps for their business.

The Adobe document cloud can also help in streamlining complicated and slow workflow processes such as managing the execution of contracts.

Adobe’s Sign and Acrobat are already capable of integrating with SharePoint and OneDrive. The company said the additional features would make it even easier to create, view, edit and collaborate on PDFs.

“With this integration, Adobe is committed to deliver the best productivity solutions to its customers, by continuing to deepen their connection with Microsoft tools in the future,” Adobe said in a statement.

Keeping in mind the problems in digitization for business and the limitations during implementing solutions in remote locations, Adobe has added an integration feature with Microsoft Dynamics that provides access to Sales Hub for the end customer.

For government, financial services and biopharmaceuticals industries that require high level of safety, Microsoft’s Information Protection takes care of the security protocols in places where the admins are required to place access restrictions to documents.

While Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC desktop apps on Windows were previously able to open files protected with MIP, the company is now extending the feature to desktop apps on Mac as well.

This integration would allow customers to do tasks such as such as combining and commenting directly within the Office 365 toolbar, viewing and adding annotations on PDFs using drawing tools, sticky notes, highlights and markups and combining multiple file types into a single PDF.
