Leading Digital Workplace Tool Uses Latest Graph Technology to
Identify Content within an Organization's Office 365 Environment and
Present it by Topic to Knowledge Workers to Promote Deep Work

SharePoint NA Conference 2018 – harmon.ie,
provider of the first user experience tools for the digital workplace
built to deliver information by topics, the way people think, today
announced that its flagship
solution
is one of the first enterprise applications that uses the
power of the Microsoft
Graph
to identify topics from Office 365 apps, thereby creating
natural workflows that promote deep work and increase productivity. By
focusing on topics, harmon.ie is able to deliver the most important
information directly to a worker's top digital workspace, Microsoft
Outlook.

"We are excited to see innovative companies like harmon.ie use the
Microsoft Graph," said Microsoft Director of Office & SharePoint
Ecosystem Marketing Mike Ammerlaan. "harmon.ie's solution is an
excellent example of how partners can solve major enterprise problems by
providing rich context and deep insights around information maintained
by the Microsoft Graph. The company's powerful analysis and extension of
the Graph enables knowledge workers to focus on the most important
tasks."

Microsoft has seen a significant increase in Office 365 and SharePoint
users in the past few years due to the company's focus on the cloud and
its robust app ecosystem including Teams, OneDrive, Calendar, SharePoint
and many others. The Graph creates a unified infrastructure for these
apps' data that allows harmon.ie to enable Topic Computing, the ability
to present critical information to workers with context and by subject.
The Graph's intelligence rates content based on a person's role and the
data they regularly create and share with colleagues. This enables
harmon.ie to deliver highly relevant information in an intuitive
interface within Microsoft Outlook, allowing people to carry out deep
work.

"Employees are overloaded with too much information coming from too many
channels. This leads to inefficiencies, inconsistences, mistakes and
frustration," said Constellation
Research
Vice President and Principal Analyst Alan Lepofsky. "One of
the ways to overcome these issues is to aggregate content from multiple
sources into a single user experience, then prioritize and personalize
that information. harmon.ie 10 is a great example of this, and I'm
impressed by the way they are leveraging the Microsoft Graph to create a
visualization of the top items people should be paying attention to
spanning across Office 365's email, calendar, documents and more."

The
False Promise of the App Economy
research study found that knowledge
workers are increasingly frustrated by app overload at work. The study
found that an average person uses nearly 10 apps a day to perform their
daily tasks, which makes it difficult to focus due to context switches
and distracting alerts. harmon.ie creates a more human-focused workflow
that incorporates the Graph's ability to provide rich context and deep
insights.

"We immediately recognized that the Graph's potential overlapped with
our own mission for creating human-based workflows," said harmon.ie CEO
Yaacov Cohen. "We've felt that Topic Computing was the future and the
Graph is proof that Microsoft shares that vision because it lets us take
the user experience to a whole new level. Enterprises can now truly
realize the promise of the intelligent cloud when they use the Graph to
identify topics from Office 365 apps, thus facilitating deep work and
greater productivity for knowledge workers."
