Microsoft has become a leader in the fast-paced world of today by announcing an amazing 50 new products, many of which are ground-breaking. The idea of Copilots, intelligent tools that are already a reality, is at the core of these innovations. Not only has Microsoft regained its footing, but it is also operating with astonishing speed and accuracy.
Several launches stand out as being especially notable among the many others. Over a billion PC users now have access to the realm of artificial intelligence thanks to the release of a Copilot for Microsoft Windows. Data analysis becomes a simple out-of-the-box task with a Copilot for PowerBI. The enormous data lake in Microsoft Fabric offers fresh opportunities, and a number of tools enable programmers to build custom Copilots and integrate plug-ins from other systems.

These developments place Microsoft in the indisputable lead when it comes to using OpenAI GPT’s Large Language Models for a variety of corporate applications. Microsoft is transforming how we work, from handling simple activities like meetings, communications, papers, and spreadsheets to more complicated situations. SuccessFactors, the biggest HR platform in the world by user base, has just included Copilots into their suite, strengthening their connection with Azure AI, which serves as more evidence of this trend.
What does this imply for people and corporations, about Microsofts AI Assistance?
Copilots are very sophisticated “Prompt Engineering” tools that provide safe access to personal information stored in the Microsoft Graph, as discussed in the companion podcast. They provide users the ability to find, research, examine, and produce material that is crucial to their jobs.
Imagine a Copilot specifically designed for sales, giving salespeople easy access to prices, discount guidelines, and product details. Your sales force and enablement team will be delighted by integrating your product documentation into the system and turning on Sales Copilot. Customer service, human resources, and numerous other applications all use the same idea.
These tools not only improve our comprehension and use of Microsoft’s current suite, but also provide us the ability to create new apps for recruitment, onboarding, training, leadership development, and many other purposes. The real Large Language Model (GPT4) acts as a platform service, while the Copilot development stack offers an out-of-the-box solution. Behind the scenes, Microsoft manages security and performance, resulting in a smooth experience.
You may preview our organization’s version of the Josh Bersin Copilot at Irresistible 2023. We were able to get complete conversational access to more than 20 years of research, more than 600 blogs and articles, more than 100 podcasts, and, last but not least, the Josh Bersin Academy in just a few short weeks. 90% of the time, this Copilot provides excellent, clear responses, providing unmatched knowledge retrieval. It really does seem magical.
This invention, made possible by Microsoft, has the potential to completely alter the IT industry and the products that different vendors provide. These technologies, as mentioned in the episode, allow software developers to significantly optimize their user experience while simultaneously improving productivity. Let’s consider the history for a moment: Google and Yahoo in 1998.
Yahoo’s website made an effort to create a user interface that included everything, but the outcome was a crowded one. Google, on the other hand, chose simplicity while constantly enhancing its core search skills. This capability is provided by the OpenAI-powered Copilot.
Imagine right now that you are developing your own apps. In place of navigating the complicated user interfaces of systems like Workday, SAP, or your company’s website, you can just ask for assistance from Copilot, and it will promptly give you the information you want. For example, the command-line interface of our Copilot is really basic.
