The enhancements include a new AI-driven insights feature that gives users real-time visibility into their business operations, a predictive analytics feature that helps users anticipate future trends, and proactive alerts feature that notifies users of potential issues before they become problems.

Microsoft has introduced several AI integrations that aim to enhance productivity and creativity for users across different domains and applications. These integrations leverage the power of large language models (LLMs) such as from and Microsoft Graph to generate natural language responses based on user data and prompts.

Microsoft 365 Copilot, for example, is a copilot for work that works alongside users in apps such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more. It can help users with tasks such as drafting documents, summarizing texts, rewriting sections, changing tones, and improving writing skills. It can also provide cross-app intelligence through a new experience called Business Chat, which can generate natural language outputs based on user data and commands.

AI Copilot Integrations Everywhere

Since its debut, Microsoft has continued to expand its Copilot offerings across its suite of applications. In May 2023, the company brought AI Copilot to PowerBI, Power Pages, and Microsoft Fabric. That same month, Microsoft announced AI Copilot for SharePoint and OneDrive, further expanding the reach of its AI capabilities.

In March 2023, Microsoft 365 Copilot was brought to Viva Engage, Teams, and the core Office apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook and in April 2023, Microsoft 365 Copilot was introduced to OneNote. The company also introduced PowerPoint Copilot, a -like AI that auto-generates presentations.

The expansion of Copilot capabilities across Microsoft's suite of applications is part of the company's broader strategy to leverage AI to improve productivity and efficiency. This strategy began with the introduction of GitHub Copilot in June 2022, which marked a significant step forward in Microsoft's AI journey. As Microsoft continues to expand its Copilot offerings, users can expect to see even more AI-driven features and capabilities in the future.
