A Metered Microsoft Graph Service
Microsoft revealed new capabilities for its Graph tool used to integrate Microsoft 365, Windows 10 and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) products and services.
Graph connectors, used to onboard, index and surface metadata across Microsoft 365, will soon allow administrators to map properties to Microsoft 365 people cards in an organization. Graph connector data will soon become available in Teams and Windows, and connectors to Jira and Confluence are coming.
Graph Data Connect is now in preview on Azure, allowing users to copy select Microsoft 365 productivity datasets into an Azure tenant. Graph Data Connect is metered as opposed to the per-user per-month model of Microsoft 365 products, meaning developers are only charged for data consumed, according to the company.
This summer, Microsoft will release a preview for connector support with eDiscovery to improve users’ search for third-party systems.
