According to CNBC, Microsoft, SAP and Adobe announced on Monday that they are jointly launching an "open data initiative" to help customers make more use of their data.
Microsoft CEO Nadela invited other companies and customers to join the initiative, calling the partnership an "open framework" for others to build. It's not clear whether Microsoft's competitors in cloud computing, including Amazon and Salesforce, will be involved. But a Microsoft spokesman told CNBC that the original idea was to use a common data model in Microsoft's Azure cloud for multiple commercial applications. Microsoft's Dynamics 365, SAP's C/4HANA and Adobe experience cloud will be the first compatible services. Coca-Cola, Unilever and WAL-MART all support this move.
