JP Mangalindan says, “Microsoft has revealed a series of extensions for Office 2016 called “add-ins,” which let third-party developers offer services that work in tandem with the company’s software suite.

The add-ins will work across different platforms. Among the first companies to take advantage are DocuSign, which now integrates its electronic signatures with Word, and SAP, which runs in Excel. Plug-ins for Outlook, from LinkedIn and Salesforce, will offer more information and context about people who have emailed you pulled from their own data.

Microsoft also announced a unified API, which makes it easier for developers to access data from its Office data graph“.
