Microsoft today announced a new service called Office 365 Usage Analytics that will be generally available in early 2018. Organizations can deploy number of apps and services for their employees, but they really won’t have information on how their employees are actually using those apps and services. Office 365 Usage Analytics is the solution to this problem, it will help organizations to analyze and visualize service-wide usage data of Office 365 apps and services in Power BI. It will include new metrics on teamwork and collaboration, usage data for Microsoft Teams, Yammer Groups and Office 365 Groups, and more.
There’s a new “Social Collaboration” area inside Usage Analytics that will offer insights about how people work in teams, and especially how they use Microsoft Teams to do so. Also SharePoint reports will be improved with activity information from all site types and additional site activity information like page views. There’s also Advanced Usage Analytics that allows IT Admins to access more granular usage data to perform advanced analytics on organization’s Office 365 usage data.
