Learn how Microsoft leverages the concept of the social graph to connect you with everyone in your network using the Office Graph.
- [Instructor] In social media, there's a concept of the social graph, a set of algorithms which connects you with everyone in your social network. Tools like Facebook and Twitter use the social graph to present you with the information you're most likely to want to see. Those friends, family, and causes with whom you share, post, and like the most. It bases what is important to you on who and what you interact with. The social graph connects you to your social world. With Microsoft Office 365 there's a similar concept known as the Office Graph. The Office Graph connects you with your colleagues, their work, and expertise across your organization.
It listens to the signals sent from you network specifically through Office 365. When you use tools in the cloud-based suite, like Exchange, Skype for Business, SharePoint and OneDrive, and Yammer, it uses cloud learning to represent to you those files and people who you work with the most. Anytime you interact with something or someone, for example, Share and OneDrive, View and Skype for Business, or post to Yammer, the Office Graph is able to help you organize and connect your experiences so you're better able to access it later.
By working out loud, that is sharing widely and whenever possible, you and your colleagues make work and ideas easier to access and build upon. Transparency builds velocity which allows everyone to work faster and smarter with less redundancy. Concepts like collaboration, intelligence, and trust are at the core of a new way of working. Microsoft Delve is your window into the Office Graph. Let's review the concepts underpinning Microsoft Delve, Office 365's discovery tool that takes of social networking and machine learning to enhance search capability.
With Microsoft Delve, files and colleagues are presented and searchable as they relate to you. Instead of being tied to file structure or time or an org chart, information is now presented in a way the Office Graph thinks you might want to see it. The relevance, timing, and relationship of files and your colleagues all help deliver the right content at the right time. We'll learn how Delve works, what it shows, and introduce beginning concepts of how to work with the results you'll find in Delve. Let's get started!
