IT giants Microsoft and Salesforce have announced a new strategic partnership which aims to connect their technology in way that allows customers to “be more productive”.

The companies said that they are planning to release ‘Salesforce1 for Windows and Windows 8.1′. This solution, which is scheduled to be generally available in 2015, will allow customers to access Salesforce’s platform and customer relationship management (CRM) tools and “run their business from their Windows devices”.

In addition, the companies intend to build greater interoperability between Salesforce’s technology and Microsoft’s ‘Office 365′ cloud computing platform.

“New interoperability between Salesforce and Office 365 will give customers access to the content they need to collaborate, sell, service and market from virtually anywhere,” the companies said.

Among the advantages foreseen by the closer tie-up is the ability of businesses to connect CRM data gathered through Salesforce’s tools with Microsoft’s spreadsheet software package ‘Excel’ and its analytics tool ‘Power BI’ so as customers can “visualise information and find new insights”.
