Until mid-2023 Modern Work was about Mobility, Security and Productivity. Enabling your employees to work hard, efficient and any time at any place was the ambition of CIO and CEO. Most organization took this opportunity to redesign their office environments, to rewrite the labor agreements and in some cases to train their workforce for this new reality. But there are limits to human mobility and employee productivity. In order to further optimize the output of the current worker AI will be your companion.

AI and more specifically Microsoft's new Copilot line up is a very powerful tool to leverage the capabilities and talents that are available in your organization. The single and seamless AI experience through the familiar Office 365 apps, the Image Creator from Designer and the ability to build your own Copilot GPT. All superchargers to boost your creativity and innovation, but important to remember that this magic only happens when you combine the power of large language models (LLMs) with your data. Microsoft offers you this powerful reasoning engine, but is your data governance ready?
