Delve and Office Graph at SharePoint Connect

 Following the release of Delve for Office 365, this year’s SharePoint Connect conference has added a session on building solutions with Office Graph. You can also earn CPD certification for attending the conference or one of its workshops.



Office Delve, previously codenamed Oslo, gives users personalized content from across Office 365, based on what you're working on and what's trending around you. It uses Office Graph as the basis of a new way to search and discover content across Office 365. It is being offered as a Windows 8 app, on mobile devices, and as part of Office 365. The underlying technology analyzes signals and applies machine learning. Personalized insights are built up for each user, based on their behavior, their relationships to content, topics and one another. Content and signals are captured from Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Yammer.

While Delve is the ‘public face’ of the new technology, under the covers the real power derives from Office Graph, the engine that drives Delve, and that’s what the new session at SharePoint Connect looks at. In this session, Waldek Mastykarz shows how Delve works but equally importantly, how you can make use of Office Graph for building solutions for your organization and customers.

Office Graph has been based on Yammer's Enterprise Graph which links people with their posts, likes, uploads and more on the social network, with the aim of making smarter connections between people and content.

SharePoint Connect has been voted best European SharePoint conference, is also rated as the third best worldwide, and will be held at the Meervaart Theatre in Amsterdam on November 18th & 19th.
