“Delve” into SharePoint Search in the Cloud

Search experiences haven’t changed much in 30 years. The user issues the search and results – relevant or not – are displayed. However, with digital natives becoming a greater influence in the market, are the traditional ways of searching even relevant? We’ll look at how traditional search is changing to support a hybrid experience with search being delivered for content on premises and in the cloud. We’ll also talk about a different view of improving information access through Delve and the power of the Office Graph to learn about what is interesting to a user through signals from the organization, from the user, and from the others the user is connected to.
