In Yina’s jam-packed session “Microsoft Graph: Build better apps with the API to your organization” she demonstrated how to leverage the Microsoft Graph API to pull data from Office 365 and other Microsoft cloud services to power your business and productivity applications.
In Jeremy’s feature he explains how Hyperfish uses the Graph heavily in delivering complete and up-to-date People Profiles. Specifically we make use of the Graph in our analysis of Active Directory (AD) and Azure Active Directory (AAD), as well as delta queries to streamline the analysis of changes in AD/AAD. Jeremy also demonstrates how Hyperfish uses the Microsoft Bot framework to allow users to update their profile through email and Skype for Business exchanges. The demonstration also features our use of Microsoft’s Cognitive Services API to ensure profile photos meets company standard before saving to AD/AAD.

Across the session Yina explains how the Graph drives productivity through providing access to data across Microsoft SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook, Exchange, Azure Active Directory, OneNote, Excel, Planner, Intune and more. See also spells out how multifaceted the Graph is, allowing data to be pulled about People (Reports, Manager, Organization, Groups), Content (Documents, Email, Events, Calendar, Tasks, Meetings, Sites, Contacts) and deliver Insights into the activity and trends across all of aforementioned data. You can read about all the announcements in this Dev Center blog.
