Microsoft rolling out Office Delve

Microsoft on Monday began rolling out Office Delve, an application that unearths information and connections, to Office 365 business customers.

Office Delve “displays information that is most relevant for each person based on the work they are doing and the people with whom they are engaging,” Julia White, a Microsoft Office general manager, wrote in a blog post. “With Delve, information finds you versus you having to find information.”

Delve is powered by Office Graph, the name for Office’s machine-learning capabilities that take in signals from how a person uses email, Yammer and other Office services, maps the relationships between the user’s relationships and content, and adapts accordingly. For instance, it might show the email messages deemed most important, rather than just showing them in the order they arrive in the user’s inbox. Delve then displays that content in a card-based format.

Microsoft announced it was working on Delve, formerly codenamed “Oslo,” at its SharePoint conference earlier this year.
