zzzdelve2Earlier this year, Microsoft revealed new advanced organizational analytics in Office Delve.

What is Office Delve? Delve helps you discover the information that's likely to be most interesting to you right now - across Office 365. You don't have to remember the title of a document or where it's stored. Delve shows you documents no matter where they're stored in OneDrive for Business or in Sites in Office 365.

Office Delve surfaces personalized content to you from across Office 365. Powered by the Office Graph, Delve shows you information based on what you're working on and what's trending around you.

Delve also lets you view your colleagues' profiles, or edit your own. Your profile is like an electronic business card you share inside your organization. Delve never changes any permissions, so you'll only see documents that you already have access to. Other people will not see your private documents.

When you and your colleagues view, edit, and share each other's documents, Delve learns from how you work and tailors the information on your personalized home page. So, what you see in Delve is different from what your colleagues see.

Only when businesses create a culture that empowers everyone to have access to data and insight that drive action will they be positioned to truly transform.
