Microsoft, Salesforce extend strategic partnership

Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) said they are going to extend their strategic partnership to connect the Salesforce Customer Success Platform to Microsoft Office productivity apps and services.

The two leaders said they plan to deliver new solutions that integrate Salesforce with Skype for Business, OneNote, Delve and Windows 10 to empower companies to connect with their customers and collaborate more effectively.

Microsoft and Salesforce continue to deliver on their strategic partnership with the general availability of two new integrations announced in October 2014: Salesforce App for Outlook, which works with Outlook 2013 and Office 365, and Salesforce1 Mobile App for Microsoft Office.

Salesforce empowers companies to connect with their customers.
