Delve to Roll Out for Office 365 in Mid-May

Delve, the first application built for Office 365’s Office Graph machine learning engine, is expected to finish rolling out to Office 365 customers by mid-May. Delve is designed to analyze how people work on Office 365. The application then automatically makes relevant data on colleagues and content easily accessible by linking to content via card icons in a dashboard interface. Delve is also set to gain the ability to analyze content within Exchange Online email attachments, and will also soon work across Yammer. Another feature of Delve is its use as a conventional search engine, into which users can enter keywords and run queries. However, Delve also offers users preconfigured search filters to see, for example, what’s been “shared with me,” “liked by me,” “modified by me,” “viewed by me,” “presented to me” and what’s “trending around me,” which flags recent actions in Office 365 taken by relevant colleagues.
