ATLANTA—Microsoft kicked off its Ignite 2016 conference here by touting its emphasis on enabling businesses to make a digital transformation. One way the company is aiming to accomplish this goal is with the latest release of its cloud-friendly server system software—Windows Server 2016—which Microsoft officially launched Sept. 26 and that will be generally available next month. "It's cloud-ready and incorporates a lot of the deep learning that we've had running our own cloud with Azure, including the core capabilities that you need to run a software-defined data center," said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of the Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group. Microsoft also announced a partnership with Adobe, which will make Microsoft Azure its "preferred cloud platform" for the Adobe Marketing Cloud, Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe Document Cloud, said Shantanu Narayen, Adobe president and CEO. Adobe officials said Azure provides Adobe with a trusted, global cloud and a data platform designed for intelligent services, including the machine learning and cognitive capabilities in Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite and SQL Server. Here are key highlights of the event.
