The modern enterprise face many challenges as companies attempt to improve communication and collaboration, whether internally between individuals and across teams, or externally with customers and partners. Those challenges tend to be the usual suspects: complex systems and disparate tools that create information silos, multiple layers of management with varying degrees of governance and compliance capability, and poor communication across these silos and layers. The answer for these enterprises is not to limit the amount of knowledge created and shared, nor to limit communications. Instead, they need to invest in technology and processes that can surface meaningful content by the right people, and in a timely manner.
That’s where Beezy can help. With our integrations with the Microsoft Graph, organizations that utilize SharePoint Online and the Office 365 platform are able to better understand the underlying intelligence within their environments, and more quickly surface contextual, meaningful content.
In a press release this morning, we announced that Microsoft has published a blog and case study on their BetterWith.Office.com website that showcases the Beezy integrations with the Microsoft Graph.
As explained in the BetterWith.Office article, the Microsoft Graph uses machine-learning to identify connections between user profiles, social network activity, content, and other data sources and hen provides relevant, timely, and contextual data for the end user based on those connections. The case study highlights the innovative ways that Beezy leverages the Microsoft Graph to better surface content, conversations, and connections within SharePoint, turning the collective intelligence captured by the platform into timely and relevant organizational knowledge. The end result is a more contextual and intuitive platform, with productive and engaged end users.
We see a huge market need to understand the underlying intelligence of the network, to resurface existing knowledge, and to identify domain expertise.

Organizations that utilize SharePoint can create a tremendous amount of content. However, that environment is only useful if people are able to locate and interact with the right data, at the right time. Not surprisingly, many of the most innovative features within SharePoint in recent years, whether online or on-premises, have been built to improve search and to leverage the Microsoft Graph as a way to insert machine-learning into these features. This focus becomes increasingly business-critical as companies begin talking about building the “digital workplace” or “intelligent enterprise.” The industry focus is turning to how companies can better extract intelligence from their information assets.
That’s why the team of developers, architects, designers, and sociologists at Beezy built a modern collaboration solution based on Microsoft Office 365, using the Microsoft Graph to turn collective intelligence into actionable insights.
We foresee a next-generation workplace where employees can, for example, ask specific questions in their natural language and get very accurate automated answers based on the existing corporate knowledge.
With Beezy, users get a collaboration and communication tool that breaks down barriers while being completely familiar and engaging. Businesses get a solution that’s up and running in a matter of hours—and is easily and widely customizable—so managers don’t need to waste precious time on implementation and launch. And it supports on-premises, cloud, or hybrid models depending on the customer’s security needs.
