Microsoft beefs up Office 365's Delve, aims to complete its rollout by May

Juan Carlos Perez | March 17, 2015
Even a classic productivity suite needs refreshing. Adding the Delve research tool to Office 365 subscriptions is just one of many new features Microsoft introduced this week around its Convergence conference for business customers.

Microsoft has said it plans to continue extending the sources of Office 365 actions and content that Delve can analyze. There are even plans to give Delve access to documents stored in SharePoint on-site servers, Cem Aykan, an Office 365 senior product manager, said Monday. "There's a lot of demand for Delve to support hybrid architectures," he said, referring to customers that have Office 365 with SharePoint Online in the cloud, as well as SharePoint installed locally.

Microsoft, which made the announcement at its Convergence 2015 conference in Atlanta, also said that the technical preview of Skype for Business -- the next version of Lync Online -- is now available for evaluation, and that the new Skype for Business client, server and service within Office 365 will be available starting in April.
