Driving Positive disruptive change

Business benefits of AI and Microsoft Copilot

AI has reached a level where it can be leveraged for multiple real-world use-cases and is rapidly developing; disrupting every industry in some way.

If it hasn’t already, AI promises to disrupt your business in some way in the near future. When used thoughtfully and ethically, AI has the potential to bring about significant benefits to businesses and the people that work within them. There are several ways this might happen, including:

Schedule a consultation down
  • Automating menial tasks

    Nobody likes doing mundane, repetitive tasks. Using AI powered technoogy, users will be able to tell a Copilot what they want to do and the copilot will complete the task.

    For example, imagine having an Excel master working alongside you at all times – Microsoft 365 Copilot will provide that directly in the App!

     

  • More efficient meetings

    Teams meetings have become a central component of modern organisations. Microsoft Teams Copilot can help record notes, generate summaries and actions, and analyse sentiment in Teams to ensure meetings are help efficiently, and nobody misses out of any information.

    Users can ask Microsoft 365 Copilot questions about what has gone previously if they join late, see a summary for a full meeting if they can’t make it, and have actions added to their task list if they’ve been assigned. Essentially, Copilot for Teams will be a huge timesaver for any Teams centric business.

  • Generating content

    Generative AI enables users who create content to automatically generate contextual content from natural language prompts. This gives them a first draft to augment, or simply ideas to use to create complex content in a shorter amount of time.

    Most product descriptions, sales pitches, and other documents are likely to be created in this way soon as content creators agument their roles.

  • Providing enhanced data insights

    Businesses can leverage AI models to drive enhanced insights from vast data sources with reduced manual intervention. Specially trained models can process data much faster than a human can, driving unique insights quickly.

    Business users will be able to leverage Large Language Models (LLMs) to ask plain language questions to interrogate large data sets without needing data science skills. 

  • Recognising patterns and making predictions

    AI is adept at recognising patterns in data. This means it can help predict and forecast what is going to happen in the future based on what has already gone beforehappened.

    Imagine being able to process the data being generated by a machine and predict that a failure is about to happen – it would enable you to act preemptively, avoiding any issues and saving your business money. 

  • Detecting anomalies

    As with pattern recognition, AI can spot anomalies and outliers in data that can be highlighted for futher investigation. If patterns have been defined in data that is generated, anything that AI identifies as looking significantly different can be flagged up for human investigation.

    Security vendors use this technology to identify strange logins from users or unusual activity, allowing them to act swiftly without human intervention to reduce risk.

SECURITY, PRIVACY, AND DATA RESIDENCY

How can BCN help you prepare for harnessing AI?  

Microsoft Copilot leverages Large Language Models that interact with your organisations data. By design M365 Copilot respects user-specific permissions to any content it receives and what you, the user, explicitly have permissions to access. It is therefore key that your information and data is ready for search. For many businesses, content oversharing, incorrect permissions, and data governance can be a challenge. BCN are here to help.
