What does your organization need to think about before we start giving out licenses like they are candy?

  1. Here is our first Public Service Announcement: Verify your security permissions for documents. Why? As we explained before, Copilot works in your environment, and Copilot will search your files, and if a person has permission to see the information it will be used to help. So, the first place to start is to verify data permissions and data saving practices are correct for your users.  For example, ardepict saving files in the cloude the important documents such as your accounting files access permissions set to only the accounting department employees?
  2. Second PSA: Verify where you think your VIP documents are being saved. Data governance, labeling, and general data saving practices will become more important from now on. Copilot is designed (out of the box) to work in the Microsoft 365 cloud environment. So, if you are still saving files in shared folders or on your desktop, it is a good time to start migrating your files to SharePoint and Teams!
  3. Third PSA: AI is being released within every application at rapid rates. Your employees will start using these programs and we all know about shadow IT! (If you don’t know, shadow IT is when employees deploy their own IT solutions without their IT department’s knowledge or approval.) Shadow IT exploded when cloud applications became so accessible, which is why it is important to have a clear AI strategy and governance security framework that aligns with your business goals and values.

Why Copilot?

Copilot is an AI application that can help you achieve your goals, while also ensuring that your data is secure and compliant. Copilot is integrated with Microsoft 365, which means that it inherits the same security and privacy features that you already trust and use. Copilot also respects your data permissions and roles, so it only accesses the information that you allow it to. Copilot helps you manage your data better, by providing you with insights and recommendations that can improve your productivity and collaboration. Copilot is not just another AI tool, it is a smart assistant that works with you, with your data, and for you.
