Adobe-Microsoft partnership adds key integrations

The Adobe-Microsoft partnership is becoming immediately visible to customers, as the tech giants start to more deeply integrate their products for cloud users.

The companies said they will soon start coselling applications and comarketing products.

Also, Adobe has unveiled new integrations with Document Cloud and Microsoft products, embedding the ability to create a PDF directly in applications like Office 365, Dynamics 365, SharePoint and OneDrive. The San Jose, Calif., company also released upgrades to its Adobe Scan and Adobe Sign products.

The integrations strengthen the partnership revealed almost two years ago at Microsoft Ignite, when Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella championed the promise of a significant alliance with Adobe.

By committing to deep integrations and signaling they will cosell and comarket  products, the companies are making more Adobe-Microsoft  integrations immediately visible to and usable for customers — particularly now that the Adobe logo is an integral feature on the Microsoft 365 UI ribbon.

Analysts said the tighter Adobe-Microsoft connection indicates the tech partners have succeeded in bridging their technologies and making product integrations tangible to users.

“Adobe and Microsoft is the tightest, most profound alliance I’ve seen with two companies,” said Paul Greenberg, founder and managing principal of The 56 Group and author of CRM at the Speed of Light. “I call it the ‘get-a-room’ partnership, because it’s that intimate — down to the bits and bytes of architecture.”

Document Cloud integration for Microsoft products has been available for on-premises versions of Office and SharePoint, but the latest integration opens the option to export PDFs into Acrobat directly from Microsoft’s cloud-based products.

Office 365 and Dynamics 365 users will also be able to use the Document Cloud integration on mobile devices. To take advantage of the integration, users must have licenses for both Document Cloud and any of the Microsoft cloud products included in the integration.

The depth of integration is going to drive sales in a significant way, regardless of if they are comarketing.
Tim Frazierresearch director at IDC

“Enterprises can roll this out for all of their users; it’s consistent across 365 tools, including Outlook,” said Lisa Croft, group marketing manager at Adobe Document Cloud. “We made the decision to do this partnership not only from a technology perspective, but also marketing and coselling together.”

Whether the Adobe-Microsoft partnership means the companies will actually go to market together does not directly reflect how close the companies have become, according to Terry Frazier, research director at IDC.

“The depth of integration is going to drive sales in a significant way, regardless of if they are comarketing,” Frazier said. “They’re expanding the ease of use and integration, and all of that is critically important.”

Neither IDC nor Adobe had statistics available on how many Adobe Document Cloud customers also license Microsoft 365 products. However, anecdotally, both said there is a significant overlap.

Adobe upgrades Scan, integrates Sign

Beyond tightening integrations between core Microsoft and Adobe products, Adobe also upgraded Adobe Scan and Adobe Sign with consumer- and enterprise-friendly features.

Adobe Scan consumers can now use a free application to scan a business card and have the information on the card turn into a contact on their mobile device. Adobe also added its AI platform, Sensei, into Scan to help the app deal with common problems, such as shadows and dimly lit pictures.

“Paper business cards are something with information that can be reused and repurposed in a better way,” Croft said, adding that since releasing Scan last year, Adobe has seen more than 10.5 million downloads.

Last year, Adobe integrated Sign into Office 365 and Dynamics 365 and furthered that integration this year to include multistep workflows within Dynamics 365 and improved automation features to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation.

“The whole e-signature space is somewhere we see a lot of activity, and it needs to continue to get easier and fast and smarter,” Frazier said.

All these integrations and product upgrades are being done with a specific goal in mind, Greenberg said. That is recognizing the importance for customers of having an intelligent, easy-to-use platform and ecosystem of products.

“Looking at it all, these companies recognize that they need to meet the end-to-end demand of customers,” Greenberg said. “Between acquisitions and partnerships, there’s a lot of completion happening.”

handiwork, such as their Active Directory group configuration.

You might inherit an Active Directory group strategy from an admin who didn’t think the process through, leaving you with a setup that doesn’t reflect the usage patterns of your users. Administrators who take the time to organize Active Directory organizational units and groups in a more coherent fashion will simplify their workload by making it easier to audit Active Directory identities and minimize the Active Directory attack surface.

Here are some practical tips and tricks to streamline your Active Directory (AD) administrator work and support your security compliance officers.

The traditional Active Directory design pattern

To start, always organize individual user accounts into groups. Avoid giving access permissions to individual user accounts because that approach does not scale.

Figure 1 shows Microsoft’s recommendation to organize Active Directory user accounts for resource access.

AGDLP model
Figure 1. Microsoft recommends the account, global, domain local, permission security model to organize Active Directory user accounts.

The account, global, domain local, permission (AGDLP) model uses the following workflow:

  • Organize users into global groups based on business criteria, such as department and location.
  • Place the appropriate global groups into domain local groups on resource servers based on similar resource access requirements.
  • Grant resource permissions to domain local groups only.

Note how this model uses two different scopes. Global groups organize AD users at the domain level, and domain local groups organize global groups at the access server level, such as a file server or a print server.

Employ role-based access control principles

Role-based access control (RBAC) grants access to groups based on job role. For example, consider network printer access:

  • Most users need only the ability to submit and manage their own print jobs.
  • Some users have delegated privileges to manage the entire print queue.
  • Select users have full administrative access to the printer’s hardware and software.

Microsoft helps with some of the planning work by prepopulating RBAC roles in Active Directory. For instance, installing the Domain Name Service role creates several sub-administrative groups in Active Directory.

How to set up users and groups in Active Directory

Instead of relying on prebuilt groups, think about the user population and how to design global and domain local groups. Try to organize Active Directory global groups according to business rules and domain local groups based on access roles.

You might have global groups defined for each business unit at your organization, including IT, accounting, legal, manufacturing and human resources. You might also have domain local groups based on specific job tasks: print queue managers, print users, file access managers, file readers, database reporters and database developers.

When you organize Active Directory, the goals are to describe both the user population and their resource access requirements completely and accurately while you keep the number of global and domain local groups as small as possible to reduce the management workload.

Keep group nesting to a minimum if possible

You should keep group nesting to a minimum because it increases your administrative overhead and makes it more difficult to troubleshoot effective access. You should only populate global groups with individual Active Directory user accounts and only populate domain local groups with global groups.

effective access tab
Figure 2. The effective access tab displays the effective permissions for groups, users and device accounts.

The Windows Server and client operating systems have a feature called effective access, found in the advanced security settings dialog box in a file or folder’s properties sheet. You model effective access for a particular user, group or computer account from this location. But analyzing multiple folders with this feature doesn’t scale. You have to run it multiple times to analyze permissions.

In a multi-domain environment, nesting is unavoidable. Stick to single domain topologies when possible.

cross-domain resource access
Figure 3. A cross-domain resource access configuration in Active Directory offers more flexibility to the administrator.

I recommend the topology in Figure 3 because while global groups can contain Active Directory user accounts from their own domain only, you can add global groups to discretionary access control lists in any forest domain.

Here’s what’s happening in the topology in Figure 3:

  • A: Global groups represent marketing department employees in the contoso.com and corp.contoso.com domains.
  • B: We create a domain local group on our app server named Mktg App Access and populate it with both global groups.
  • C: We assign permissions on our line-of-business marketing app to the Mktg App Access domain local group.

When you need to organize Active Directory groups, develop a naming convention that makes sense to everyone on your team and stick to it.

You might wonder why there is no mention of universal groups. I avoid them because they slow down user logon times due to global catalog universal group membership lookups. Universal groups also make it easy to be sloppy during group creation and with resource access strategy.

How to design for the hybrid cloud

Microsoft offers Azure Active Directory for cloud identity services that you can synchronize with on-premises Active Directory user and group accounts, but Azure AD does not support organizational units. Azure AD uses a flat list of user and group accounts that works well for identity purposes.

With this structure in mind, proper user and group naming is paramount. You should also sufficiently populate Active Directory properties to make it easier to manage these accounts in the Azure cloud.

When you need to organize Active Directory groups, develop a naming convention that makes sense to everyone on your team and stick to it.

One common group naming pattern involves prefixes. For example, you might start all your global group names with GL_ and your domain local group names with DL_. If you use Exchange Server, then you will have distribution groups in addition to the AD security groups. In that instance, you could use the DI_ prefix.

Wanted – Ultrawide or 4k Monitor

If any interest then I can start my own thread . But looking for £550 for ultrawide X34a and £450 for the 4K screen .

Proof of purchase for both .

P.s any potential buyers need to arrange the own collection for monitors . I have sold a few on here already with no problems when buyers arranged there own collections.

They are not being used and they are both in there boxes . If I have to say which one is the best I would have to say the 4K as it’s spotless , no bleed , no dead pixels and just perfect .

The ultra wide is the newer of the 2 and still has the protecting wrapper on the feet still .

But it does have slight ips glow in right and left top corners ( just like them all as I’ve had 4 ultra wides all the same glow) . Can only be seen when switching it on and having no input . Soon as desktop comes on can’t be seen or can be seen slightly black none input backgrounds .(priced reasonable due to this)

It was only the other day I thought about building a new rig now the 1180 is imminent.

But if I can get money for both then why not .
