Update Windchill Desktop Integration Add-ins to support Office 365

Update Windchill Desktop Integration Add-ins to support Office 365

O365 is not going away.  PTC should get with the program and update the add-ins to allow DTI to work with the full cloud O365

I agree, O365 is definitely scheduled for deployment in our environment this calendar year affecting our DTI users.  PTC should update the add-ins to allow DTI to work with the full cloud O365

If only PTC was a little more in front of the curve and understood why a company like Microsoft would want to go to Cloud implementations of their software, and move to subscription licensing.  If PTC really understood why a company would do such a thing, they would probably be quicker to develop a suite of tools that was compatible with cloud delivered industry standard tools...

O365 is right around the corner for us!

Come on PTC!!

It depends on WHERE you use O365. If you have a local installation, there should be no issues with integrating it into Windchill.

The issue comes when your company uses the Microsoft cloud version of O365. Microsft does NOT allow 3rd parties to modify the implemnation and PTC has to modify it for the Windchill DTI plug-in.

 

This was been discussed in other threads. Here is one I found.

@BenLoosli That is just not true.  Microsoft O365 Cloud allows add-ins, just not the COM addin that PTC uses for DTI now.

My Windchill and Creo licenses are grabbed from a server. No local installations here.

Just can't wait for O365 to get here and lose access to Windchill.
