3rd party plugin integration

There is a myriad of software which has plugins to Outlook (e.g Salesforce, GoToMeeting, etc) which makes it easy to interact with the counterpart.

In my point of view this is something which is desperately needed in order to keep current customers to stay with the Notes/Domino world for email.

There should be an easy way for the potential plugin creator to offer this for the Notes client too.

    How in specific do you think this should work?
    What is being offered today is API's, extension points, Widgets, etc. 
    so what is missing?

    For example the scheduling of an meeting with GoToMeeting (https://www.gotomeeting.com/meeting/resources/gotomeeting-outlook-calendar-plugin) or the integration of Salesforce (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=000113374&type=3&sfdcIFrameOrigin=null)

    Look to MS Outlook how the handle it and adopt it.

    An other example: a customer complains of the absence of plugin for Autodesk Vault. For MS Outlook there's a plugin. The impression of this customer is that for MS Outlook there are more often plugins than for IBM Notes.

    Like how? Reverse engineering the plugin capabilities of our vendor? Trying to cheat or hack installation process of the plugin because it is intended to work with Outlook only. Or extract contents of the 3rd party plugin it to embed them 'somehow' into our product? No that will not work, and I guess this would be illegal to.
