By now I am sure you have probably heard about Microsoft’s latest addition – Copilot. This AI-powered productivity tool is set to revolutionize the way businesses work, and it’s generating quite the buzz in the tech world. With its natural language processing and deep learning algorithms, Copilot can analyze user data and provide personalized recommendations, making it a game-changer for companies looking to enhance their productivity and efficiency. But what sets Copilot apart from other AI tools is that it’s built on a platform that’s already known for its robust security and governance features – Microsoft 365.  

In this blog, we’ll dive into the benefits Copilot can bring to enterprise companies, explore how it leverages the power of Microsoft 365, and how you can prepare your organization for this big change. 

Leverage the Security and Compliance of Microsoft 365

In the current technology era, security and governance are hot topics for all AI products – especially when referring to privacy. One of the significant benefits of using Copilot is that it is built on Microsoft 365, which is an already secure and feature-rich platform. In addition to keeping your data inside your Microsoft 365 environment, Copilot inherits all your company’s valuable security, compliance, and privacy policies such as two-factor authentication, compliance boundaries, privacy protections, and more.  

To take it a step further, Copilot is designed to safeguard tenants, groups, and individual data, ensuring data privacy. Copilot’s language models are not trained on customer data or prompts, and the permissions model prevents data leakage across user groups. This means Copilot only displays data that a user can access, creating an AI you can trust.

This saves time and ensures all documents are created in a standardized and compliant way. 
  • PowerPoint Presentations: By analyzing the data within your organization, Copilot can create customized slides and incorporate relevant data and insights to help convey your message more effectively. This helps you create remarkable presentations that are engaging and compliant with your organization’s security standards. 
  • Data analysis: With Copilot, you can quickly and efficiently receive insights and recommendations that help you make informed decisions. This ensures all decisions are made on accurate and up to date information, reducing the risk of compliance violations.  
  • Knowledge management: By leveraging Copilot’s capabilities, businesses can improve their knowledge management processes and ensure that critical information is easily accessible while maintaining privacy policies. 
  • Customer support: You can quickly and efficiently get answers, provide step-by-step guidance, and even generate personalized responses based on the data within your organization. This can help provide efficient and effective support to customers, leading to improved satisfaction and reduced risks. 

It’s important to know that Copilot also integrates with other Microsoft 365 applications, including SharePoint and OneDrive, to provide a seamless experience across all your productivity tools. It can constantly generate from your data, so the more information you give it, the better it becomes.
