OneDrive for Business is the crucial place where individuals can store, share and sync their work related files in the cloud.

Delve helps you to curate and discover all business documents across the Office 365 suite, from OneDrive for Business to SharePoint, in one place. As well as typical search functions, the intelligent ‘discover’ feature, powered by machine learning, brings relevant content to the attention of the user based on their past content activity and who they work with. Users have their own personalised profile page which includes their recently accessed documents, co-worker profiles and feed-based suggested content which can be grouped together.
