Microsoft Office Delve – Mining Office 365 Data In Useful and Clever Ways

Posted by on in Cloud Computing, IT Outsourcing

Office delveYes – we are All In The Cloud – Microsoft Office 365, that is.

 

We use it, we evangelize it, we sell and implement it; we embrace it in all it’s magnificent feature-laden availability and completeness. (If you are interested in understanding the Microsoft licensing options… Beringer can help!)

 

“Delving” further into the solution –  I found this: Microsoft Office Delve – a way to intelligently and easily mine the data found throughout Office 365 and present it in very useful and clever ways. Delve shows you information based on what you’re working on and what’s trending around you.

 

You’ll see both your own documents, and documents your colleagues are working on. These might be documents that are stored in OneDrive for Business or on Sites in Office 365. They may have been shared with you as attachments in emails. Webpages posted to Yammer can also show up in Delve. This is not a simple historical timeline of events but is content rooted out by connection and frequency and then sorted by relevance.

 

So how can Delve know what you care about? The brains behind Delve is the Office Graph. Office Graph looks at bits and bytes from what you and your colleagues are working on all over Office 365. For example, when you and a colleague modify or view the same document, it’s a signal that you’re likely working together. Other signals are who you communicate with through e-mail, and who you’ve shared documents with, who your manager is, and who has the same manager as you. It just makes sense.

 

Delve just makes the connections before you even have to. And that’s impressive.
