ownCloud enables millions of users to open synced documents in office suites installed on their devices. To enable working in browsers, ownCloud also integrates seamlessly with the browser-based office suites from Collabora, OnlyOffice and Microsoft.

Browser-based editing has some neat advantages: With both ownCloud and the browser-based Office suite running on-premises, sensitive files don’t ever have to leave an organization’s servers. Users also have more choice of devices since all they need to work is a compatible browser.

As an alternative to the on-prem solutions Collabora, OnlyOffice or Office Online Server, you can also integrate with the latest Office 365 Apps to enable users to view and edit PowerPoint, Word, and Excel documents in the browser. Note that an active Office 365 subscription is needed in this case.

The integrations for Collabora, OnlyOffice, and Microsoft (Office Online Server) is made possible by the WOPI protocol.
