The partnership between iManage and Microsoft is aimed at benefitting customers in four key areas of digital transformation, collaborative work, data security, and product innovation.

IManage will leverage Microsoft Azure services to offer new functionality for enabling new ways to completely manage global projects and coordinate knowledge work among distributed teams.
