Announcing the Skype Professional Account Preview—doing business online made easy

People use Skype for lots of different things: chatting with friends and family, of course, but also giving music lessons, tutoring, consulting, and a whole lot more. We’re thrilled to announce that very soon these business owners and instructors are going to see some big changes with the way they use Skype.

The Skype Professional Account desktop client, soon to be released in preview in the U.S., adds powerful new features to Skype to make doing your online business a whole lot easier. In addition to meeting with your clients as you have been on Skype, you can also book those meetings, accept payments, and keep notes—all in one place.

If you’re a language or music teacher who works online—or a personal trainer, or a chess instructor, or any one of hundreds of other remote service providers—you’re probably using a combination of different platforms to organize and give sessions across Skype. You might use email to arrange a Skype call, calendar software to manage your Skype meeting schedule, and a third-party provider to coordinate and accept online payments. And you might be paying a pretty penny for some of these services.

Skype Professional Account gives you the power to do all that from one app for free during the preview. From French tutors to yoga instructors, you’ll be able to book lessons, accept payments, and give lessons all from one place, seamlessly. Plus, we’ve added an enhanced profile page to help improve your online presence and a dedicated website for your small business right in Skype. Your contacts will be able to see pertinent info like your hours and business offerings.

A laptop displays an instructor using Skype Professional Account. The image is accompanied by a screenshot.

All the features work together. For example, a payment request can be sent along with a booking. You’ll also be able to see all your notes without leaving the app. In addition, you’ll be able to easily port your contacts over to the Skype Professional Account Preview desktop client while your customers and clients continue to use their familiar Skype app to work with you.

As for your customers, in addition to searching for friends and groups they want on Skype, they’ll be able to find businesses as well. That means they can now look for the kind of professional they want to work with—maybe a financial planner in their time zone with over ten years of experience, or a career coach who’s worked in the healthcare industry.

Skype Professional Account will make it easier for thousands of service providers to connect with their customers and conduct their business—all in one place. We have limited spots available for the preview. Fill out a survey by visiting the Skype Professional Account homepage to have the opportunity to join. By the way, we’re busy working hard on several other exciting features we want to add to this app, so stay tuned for updates.

Check out what violin teacher Laurel Thomsen has to say about Skype Professional Account. Laurel was one of our early adopters who participated in the alpha program for Skype Professional Account.

We look forward to hearing your feedback in the Skype Community.

Docker’s routing mesh available with Windows Server version 1709

The Windows Core Networking team, along with our friends at Docker, are thrilled to announce that support for Docker’s ingress routing mesh will be supported with Windows Server version 1709.

Ingress routing mesh is part of swarm mode–Docker’s built-in orchestration solution for containers. Swarm mode first became available on Windows early this year, along with support for the Windows overlay network driver. With swarm mode, users have the ability to create container services and deploy them to a cluster of container hosts. With this, of course, also comes the ability to define published ports for services, so that the apps that those services are running can be accessed by endpoints outside of the swarm cluster (for example, a user might want to access a containerized web service via web browser from their laptop or phone).

To place routing mesh in context, it’s useful to understand that Docker currently provides it, along with another option for publishing services with swarm mode–host mode service publishing:*

  • Host mode is an approach to service publishing that’s optimal for production environments, where system administrators value maximum performance and full control over their container network configuration. With host mode, each container of a service is published directly to the host where it is running.
  • Routing mesh is an approach to service publishing that’s optimized for the developer experience, or for production cases where a simple configuration experience is valued above performance, or control over how incoming requests are routed to the specific replicas/containers for a service. With ingress routing mesh, the containers for a published service, can all be accessed through a single “swarm port”–one port, published on every swarm host (even the hosts where no container for the service is currently running!).

While our support for routing mesh is new with Windows Server version 1709, host mode service publishing has been supported since swarm mode was originally made available on Windows. 

*For more information, on how host mode and routing mesh work, visit Docker’s documentation on routing mesh and publishing services with swarm mode.

So, what does it take to use routing mesh on Windows? Routing mesh is Docker’s default service publishing option. It has always been the default behavior on Linux, and now it’s also supported as the default on Windows! This means that all you need to do to use routing mesh, is create your services using the --publish flag to the docker service create option, as described in Docker’s documentation.

For example, assume you have a basic web service, defined by a container image called, web-frontend. If you wanted to publish this service to port 80 of each container and port 8080 of all of your swarm nodes, you’d create the service with a command like this:

C:> docker service create --name web --replicas 3 --publish 8080:80 web-frontend

In this case, the web app, running on a pre-configured swarm cluster along with a db backend service, might look like the app depicted below. As shown, because of routing mesh clients outside of the swarm cluster (in this example, web browsers) are able to access the web service via its published port–8080. And in fact, each client can access the web service via its published port on any swarm host; no matter which host receives an original incoming request, that host will use routing mesh to route the request to a web container instance that can ultimately service that request.

Once again, we at Microsoft and our partners at Docker are proud to make ingress mode available to you on Windows. Try it out on Windows Server version 1709, and using Docker EE Preview*, and let us know what you think! We appreciate your engagement and support in making features like routing mesh possible, and we encourage you to continue reaching out with feedback. Please provide your questions/comments/feature requests by posting issues to the Docker for Windows GitHub repo or by emailing the Windows Core Networking team directly, at sdn_feedback@microsoft.com.

*Note: Ingress mode on Windows currently has the following system requirements:

Adobe Sign, Microsoft Teams integrations expand partnership

In the early 2000s, Microsoft and Adobe weren’t always the best of friends. During the last few years, however, the two cloud titans teamed up to integrate their respective CRM and marketing automation tools. Together, they position themselves to better take on Oracle and Salesforce, which previously had acquired marketing automation vendors and hardwired them into their respective clouds.

Thursday, several new hooks between Adobe and Microsoft services became available, enabling numerous cross-platform capabilities. Available now is Adobe Sign integration with Microsoft Dynamics and SharePoint. The integration that will likely be most widely used, however, comes later in September: signing and approving electronic documents with Adobe Sign in Office 365 Word, PowerPoint, Flow and Outlook.

Also on deck is Adobe Stock and Adobe Sign integration with Microsoft Teams. In turn, Microsoft Teams will expand integration across Adobe’s Creative Cloud, as well, ostensibly streamlining workflows and fostering adoption of Teams among Adobe customers.

Azure gets a boost

Since Teams will be embedded in Creative Cloud, it will be simpler to use than competitors’ collaboration tools, said Michael Fauscette, chief research officer at Chicago-based G2 Crowd Inc. Another big win for Microsoft among the raft of planned integrations between the two companies, he continued, is the announcement that Adobe named Azure the preferred platform partner for its e-signature business.

“They’re looking for quick wins, great ways to tie things together,” Fauscette said, imagining how many more contracts and sales agreements, for example, will be signed with Adobe e-signatures as Dynamics and Office open their doors to the technology.

For Adobe, new access to more than 100 million monthly users of Office 365 could quickly expand Adobe Sign usage from its present annual volume of 6 billion signatures processed through banks and credit card companies.

“It’s a huge win for Microsoft for Adobe to say, ‘We’re going to move our e-signature product to Azure,'” Fauscette said. “For Adobe, the e-signature market is very competitive; to get Adobe Sign into Microsoft Office and Microsoft Flow, that’s pretty big.”

Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Stock integration with Microsoft Teams
The first Adobe cloud integrations with Microsoft Teams help content creators and designers collaborate with clients on Microsoft platforms. The companies say more will come.

In time for Ignite

The new details build on last year’s announcement of an initial partnership unveiled at Ignite, Microsoft’s annual user meeting, and embed Teams in all three Adobe cloud service suites — Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud.

While this year’s Ignite is just weeks away, representatives of both Microsoft and Adobe claimed the timing of this announcement was “coincidental,” with months of work just happening to culminate in the run-up to the show.

AI is coming

In their joint announcement, Microsoft and Adobe hinted at future blending of their respective companies’ technologies for cloud customers. That could mean adding functionality to Adobe’s Sensei artificial intelligence (AI), which already can be piped through the Microsoft Graph API to reach end users of Microsoft’s office and enterprise cloud applications.

While specifics of how AI will be deployed remain under wraps, Sensei could potentially be applied to guide both the creation of new content, as well as lend insights via back-end analytics of extant documents.

“There’s more to come there,” said Lisa Croft, Adobe’s group product marketing manager. “We’re focusing on what we can do with artificial intelligence and what we can do with documents across our platform.”
