“Oslo” gets a new name and a rollout

Microsoft’s program previously codenamed Oslo now has an official name: Office Delve.

In a recent blog post, the company said it will roll out Delve to its Office 365 business customers beginning this week, said Julia White, the general manager of Office 365 Technical Product Management.

The program will know what content is relevant for individuals based on the information Office Graph delivers, White said. Office Graph, which received a lot of attention at this year’s Microsoft Exchange Conference, gathers this information by using “content and signals” from Yammer, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for business, she said.

Office 365 business customers can also expect to see changes in Delve as it begins to incorporate other content from Lync, OneNote and email attachments, White added. No timeline for this integration was given.

    I get the spirit behind the name, but for some reason 'Microsoft Delve' just doesn't feel like a winner to me. Awkward to say.

    I have to agree with you on the name. Not only is it awkward, but it doesn't make the feature sound that interesting (even though it is, in fact, interesting).

    A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet, but "Miracle-Gro Fresh" is so much harder to work into poetry.
