Microsoft rolls out Office Delve

Earlier this year Microsoft shared a cool new project–codename Oslo. Oslo is built on Office Graph, and connects users to information in new, and more proactive ways. Essentially, the information you use and need most should be surfaced and ready, and relevant information you might not otherwise be aware of should be shared with you. Now, Microsoft is starting to roll the service out to Office 365 business customers under its official name: Office Delve.

I wrote a blog post about Office Delve:

The advent of PCs and the Internet have transformed the way we seek and find information. A new service from Microsoft — Office Delve — promises to shake things up again by having the information find you instead.

Microsoft unveiled a service codenamed “Oslo” at its BUILD conference earlier this year but didn’t share any specific timeline for when users would get to actually use it. Julia White, general manager of Office 365 Technical Product Management for Microsoft, revealed in a blog post that it is beginning to roll out the service — officially named Office Delve — to Office 365 business customers.

Office Delve is the next logical step in the evolution of information. We’ve gone from printed files crammed into cabinets to digital files stuffed onto hard drives, and we’ve matured from printed information on shelves in encyclopedias to “Googling” becoming a verb for finding virtually any information you can think of out there on the internet. Delve goes a bit farther by proactively determining the information that will be valuable for you, and putting it in front of you before you ask.

White describes it in her blog post. “Office Delve is a new way to discover relevant information and connections from across your work life. 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. With Delve, information finds you vs. you having to find information.”
