Date: Thursday, April 4th at 10am PT / 1pm ET

In just a few short years, artificial intelligence (AI) has found its way into a remarkable range of tools and solutions, effectively reshaping the way we engage with technology in the workplace. Microsoft's AI-powered Copilot family of chatbots is a leading example of this trend. Initially a tool aimed at software developers via GitHub, Copilot has been integrated with Microsoft's category-leading productivity applications in Microsoft 365, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and Teams. This, if nothing else, makes it critically important to understand fully the impact of this technology on your organization.

In this information-packed Tech Talk, enterprise software support experts Mike Jones and Josh Arras talk with veteran technology journalist John K. Waters about the critical aspects of Microsoft Copilot, offering a comprehensive examination of its pricing structures, versions, and the unseen costs businesses might incur.

Key topics to be explored:

  • The three tiers of Copilot services: the free version, Copilot Pro, and Copilot 365.
  • The pricing of Copilot Pro and Copilot 365, including the impact on enterprise agreements and the disproportionate effect on small businesses and family subscriptions.
  • The privacy concerns associated with Copilot Pro and the enhanced data protection offered by Copilot 365.
  • The broader financial implications of adopting Copilot, from its impact on Unified spend and Microsoft support tax to the nuances of "buying in bulk" strategies.
  • Guidance on navigating the complexities of Copilot integration, with a focus on negotiating price breaks, exploring alternatives, and understanding the roles of Unified deals, third-party support, and managed service providers.
  • The significance of adequate training on Copilot for maximizing its benefits, and the available support options for Copilot users.
  • The impact of AI on business operations, support structures, and the overarching implications for the future of digital workspaces.
