Microsoft positions O365 as a cloud-based subscription service that brings together the best tools for the way people work today. By combining best-in-class apps with powerful cloud services, Office 365 lets anyone create and collaborate anywhere on any device. The platform includes OneDrive, Exchange Online, Microsoft Teams, and Yammer. SharePoint Online Collaboration Software is an application that is part of the O365 Platform for which BA Insight has an ingestion connector for Elasticsearch available.
The SharePoint Online Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise provides the following:
- Incremental and full ingestion of content into Elastic
- Security trimming
- Supports all document types within SharePoint Online
