How to Prepare for Microsoft Copilot

Where are we going and how do we prepare? With rapid advancements in AI taking place, we are likely about to witness a business transformation like we have never seen. When we started Synergy Technical 12 years ago, cloud computing was just taking off and organizations were trying to figure out what it meant and what to do with this new ecosystem. As organizations tried to understand the impact of cloud to their business, a rapid growth in Shadow IT became a concern. Users weren’t waiting for companies to understand cloud, they were busy gaining efficiency with cloud-based services outside the control of their IT, while risking exposing sensitive company data. As Mark Twain once said, “History never repeats itself, but it often rhymes.” To ensure your data, IP, and PII are protected, the time to prepare for AI is now.

What is generative AI?

Generative AI is a type of AI that enables content creation such as text, images, and music. This intelligent real-time assistance tool uses neural network to learn from datasets and autonomously generate outputs.

What can AI do for my business?

Once again Microsoft is leading the way with their AI-powered tool, Microsoft Copilot. Customers on the Microsoft 365 platform are going to be able to take advantage of using Copilot, the AI generation tool, within their favorite applications such as Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, and Microsoft Teams. Use Copilot to summarize email threads, generate responses, create meeting presentations from notes or documents, and much more. All these capabilities will be delivered using natural language. This means your users don’t have to learn complex code or formulas to generate amazing content, all while still being in complete control. Organizations that embrace AI tools like Copilot, are sure to gain an edge over their competitors through more efficient time management, lightening loads by focusing more on the work that matters.

How do I prepare?

Security and privacy are among the top concerns for organizations when it comes to AI and tools like Microsoft Copilot.  To know where we are going, we first must understand where we are today.  To begin, we must ask questions such as:

  • What settings and policies do we have in place today to protect our data?
  • Do our users have the appropriate roles and access for their position?
  • Have we classified our data and deployed solutions like Data Loss Prevention?

How do I get help so I can be prepared?

When organizations were making their move from on-premises solutions to cloud-based services, they had to start with an assessment of their current situation. With the transition to an AI based world, the starting point remains the same. We must understand where we are today with our data quality, privacy, security, and compliance. Otherwise, we risk exposing sensitive information.

Synergy Technical has the experts to help you review, configure, and deploy the services and tools you need to protect your data and be prepared for the world of generative AI with Microsoft Copilot.  Just as we helped millions of customers navigate their journey to the cloud, we will help millions more protect their data, streamline their operations, gain efficiency to allow AI to help them become the leader in their industry.  Get ahead and let us help you start preparing today!
