Starting Your AI Journey with Copilot

Home » Resources » Starting Your AI Journey with Copilot

In a world where creativity fuels productivity, the relentless management of emails, meetings, data, and notifications threatens innovation, as work hours expand and precious minutes dwindle. That’s why generative AI represents an enormous opportunity for business leaders interested in establishing a more productive way of working. Microsoft’s AI-powered Copilot is designed to integrate seamlessly with the Microsoft 365 apps your employees use every day, ensuring a smooth transition with minimal disruption to existing workflows.

While leveraging Copilot is both minimally disruptive and very affordable, it would be a mistake to jump in with both feet before evaluating your organization’s readiness across a few key areas:

  • Technology, Security & Governance – Do your data privacy and governance policies align with Microsoft’s latest guidelines? Is your M365 environment operating in alignment with best practices? Missing checkboxes here could quickly put your organization in a world of hurt.
  • Data – Is your data ready for AI to take advantage of it? If not, you could have a “garbage in, garbage out” scenario. Check out our recent blog for more on this topic.
  • Business Strategy – Does your company know how it plans to leverage AI specifically? Are your users educated on how to adopt AI? How can you ensure that your investment will yield the maximum return?
