Copilot Mobile App

This Session

Microsoft took center stage to unveil its ambitious vision for the next 5 years into the future of the digital workspace. The overarching theme revolves around optimizing employee productivity and seamlessly migrating towards modernized cloud services, supercharged with enhanced GPUs and limitless storage capacities.



Key Takeaways

Microsoft’s Vision

The future digital workspace aims to simplify day-to-day tasks through the integration of AI and Copilot. Microsoft announced two key features: Copilot Studio and Copilot for Outlook. Copilot’s ability to generate detailed meeting summaries and provide accurate AI-generated transcripts in Teams stands out. SharePoint Premium, formerly known as Syntex, is expected to revolutionize the information worker’s daily routine by automating tasks like auto-classification, tagging, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) , and more.

AI in Action

Artificial intelligence (AI) is everywhere, and it brings benefits to everyone in the organization. Copilot assists developers as the ultimate coding sidekick, helping with app building, process automation, and complex Power BI reports. In customer service, Copilot summarizes case information, which makes issue resolution more efficient. The constructive collaboration between AI and humans through Copilot is driving innovation and boosting productivity across industries.

Navigating Microsoft Copilot for Power Platform  | AI Readiness & the Art of What's Possible

Power Platform + Copilot

Microsoft has made significant improvements to its Power Platform tools by integrating Copilot, a low and no-code environment that simplifies UI design and formula creation. This integration has resulted in a more robust and efficient development experience, delivering more power from the power platform than ever before.

Transformation in Practice – Syntex and Content Intelligence

As a member of the Microsoft Content Intelligence Community, we could geek out on this topic all day! We shared our experience with Syntex (soon to be SharePoint Premium), which proved to be instrumental in building a robust AI document processing solution for a financial firm. The custom machine learning models within Syntex were specifically tailored to cater to the unique needs of the financial industry, enabling the solution to automate complex document processing tasks. This innovative solution paved the way for streamlined workflows and improved decision-making capabilities for the client. This project’s success is a testament to the power of innovation and how it can solve complex problems in the most efficient manner possible.

Copilot is set to revolutionize the digital workspace, enhancing collaboration, and productivity. Microsoft’s commitment to innovation and continuous improvement is evident in the upcoming features and developments discussed during the webinar.
