Avanade, a joint venture between Microsoft and Accenture, has started a partnership with Adobe. As part of the collaboration, an ‘Adobe practice’ will be set up, which will connect the Adobe Experience Cloud with Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Azure.

Adobe states that the Accenture Microsoft Business Group – an Accenture dedicated department dedicated to Azure migration services – will assist with the Adobe Experience Cloud/Dynamics 365 and Azure integrations. That’s what ZDNet reports.


Microsoft entered into a partnership with Accenture and Avanade last year. The companies work together on vertical AI services under the name Dynamics 365 AI Solutions. It uses a lot of Microsoft technology, such as Knowledge Graph, Bing Data and the Microsoft Machine-reading technology.

Avanade is now one of Microsoft’s largest systems integration partners, and Accenture is one of Microsoft’s largest partners. The Accenture Microsoft Business Group was launched earlier this year. Accenture also immediately added 10,000 additional Microsoft-focused consultants to its organisation, in addition to the 35,000 consultants it already had.

In recent years, Accenture has also become the world’s largest Windows 10 store. That store is even bigger than Microsoft itself. However, the company does not only focus on selling Microsoft solutions, but also has a Google Cloud Platform Business Group and an AWS Business Group.


Microsoft and Adobe have also come closer together in recent years. In 2016, for example, Adobe chose Microsoft’s Azure as its cloud provider, although this is not an exclusive partnership. In 2017, further integrations between the services of the two parties were announced, including between Microsoft Teams and Adobe’s Sign e-signature service.

In addition, together with SAP, Adobe was one of the co-founders of the Open Data Initiative that Microsoft announced last autumn. This should make it easier for joint customers of the companies to move data between the different services that are offered.
