article imageMicrosoft finally launches Delve search tool for Office 365

By James Walker     Sep 9, 2014 in Technology
Yesterday, Microsoft finally released a new component for the company's Office 365 system. Called Delve, it has been in the pipe-line for years and aims to make it much easier for Office 365 users to manage their work effectively.
The program is based around an algorithm that utilises intelligent machine-learning to filter and show you only the content in your Office 365 that you need to be seeing. The feature is called Office Graph and Microsoft are going to expand its usage into other products in the future. The content that it presents can include emails, contacts, documents, files in your OneDrive or even links to social networks.

Microsoft general manager Julia White wrote in a blog post though that Delve will be expanded to cover more content in future updates including files originating from email attachments, Microsoft's business chat client, Lync, and notes made in OneNote.
No mention is made of support for third-party platforms such as Dropbox though. In its current state, Delve only really makes sense for people who use the Microsoft ecosystem for all of their services. It is optimised primarily for businesses reliant on Microsoft's SharePoint platform, saving files in OneDrive for Business storage.
Delve is now being rolled-out to all existing Office 365 for Business users at no additional cost. As highlighted by the Business Insider, it represents another significant step to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's vision of the company becoming a "productivity platform" with deep-rooted links between all of their products including both hardware and software.
