Office 365, Microsoft’s popular cloud-based productivity suite, is constantly growing in popularity, especially with small to medium businesses. However, as with many other software suites, the amount of data associated with Office 365 is also constantly growing and it can be tricky to keep track of all your data and connections. To help, Microsoft has introduced the Office Delve feature.
The idea behind Office Delve is that it’s a tool that helps business users get the most out of their data and information related to Office 365. According to Microsoft, Delve will allow you to:
In order to provide the information and data that users will likely find useful, Delve is powered by a tool Microsoft calls Office Graph. Graph maps the relationships between the various Office 365 users in your company, and the content/information related to them.
This ‘map’ is then used by Delve to provide users with what they need, when they need it. Content and information is displayed on a card-based screen, which can be found under the Delve tab in the main Office 365 launch screen.
Aside from content such as profile information, links to documents, or information, users can also see: Likes, views, comments, and tags, which brings a deeper social integration into Office 365.
Delve also orders content a number of different ways, including:
While this idea works great on the desktop, many Office 365 users access their systems from their mobile devices. Delve will also be available to mobile users. On your device you can browse the cards with files, swipe left or right on each card to view files, and even search for colleagues and view files they have shared with you and their recent activity.
Microsoft has noted that Delve is currently rolling out for businesses who have subscribed to the Office 365 Enterprise level plans (E1-E4) and have joined the first release program. Over the following months, it will roll out to all E1-E4 customers. In 2015, Microsoft has noted that they will introduce Delve to Business Essentials, Business Premium, Small Business, Small Business Premium and Mid Sized Business customers.
