Are You Ready for Microsoft Copilot? Copilot Brings Generative AI to the 365 Environment

February 22, 2024

Microsoft (MS) 365 Copilot is emerging as a groundbreaking tool, specifically tailored to meet the unique needs of the government sector. Microsoft’s 365 Copilot, an Azure Open AI model, is positioned for release later this year, which can transform the way government agencies operate, including security and productivity.

How Does Copilot Work?

Copilot includes a
chatbot sidebar in M365 that can perform work tasks, such as writing emails, creating document text/slides, taking actions in Excel, as well as any custom actions created in Copilot Studio, which can also use custom connectors. Copilot offers a blend of sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities with the trusted productivity suite of Microsoft 365. 

Copilot also interacts with Microsoft Office apps and Power Automate.


Benefits Delivered by Copilot

  • Streamlines Document Creation and Data Analysis – Speeding up document creation, while ensuring consistency and accuracy across governmental communications – from policy documents and reports to briefs and presentations
  • Enhances Communication and Collaboration – Facilitating more efficient meetings, project management, and inter-agency collaboration. With AI-powered summarization and action item extraction in Teams, government employees can focus on decision-making rather than note-taking.
  • Ensures Security and Compliance – Integrating seamlessly with Microsoft 365’s advanced security features, ensuring sensitive information remains protected, while optimizing AI capabilities. Copilot, also, complies with standards, requirements, and regulations, offering government agencies the confidence to innovate without compromising compliance with security or regulatory obligations.


AI Gets to Know You


Sure, this can seem kind of creepy, but Copilot embedded in Microsoft 365 helps capitalize on all the MS apps, learning individual preferences and tailoring suggestions for the user, based on inputs. It can also guide users on a learning journey, elevating skill and knowledge.


Is Microsoft Copilot a Fortress, Protecting Your Proprietary Information?


All reports to date indicate it is providing a high level of security within your enterprise. We all know, there are bad actors continuously threatening the safety and security of information and some environments are more secure than others.

As a government partner, Microsoft is embedded in the governmental agency infrastructure and must continually meet stringent security requirements across all levels of secure information management. Does Copilot have vulnerabilities? Looks like Microsoft has employed significant encryption, access controls, and data classifications to protect your data from threats.
