I’m very luckly to be able to talk to so many customers in both the education, public sector and corporate space around Microsoft technologies but as you can imagine, the one everyone is excited about and want more than anything else is Microsoft 365 Copilot.
With Microsoft announcing a vast range of Copilots, it is important that we look to understand the difference between each of them. I’m not seeing very much out there which explains and gives a clear guide to the different Copilots.
Copilot or Copilot or Copilot? Which one do you want?
Microsoft first announced Microsoft 365 Copilot and as people have said they want “Copilot” they have always been referring to Microsoft 365 Copilot however, there is now a Microsoft Copilot. This has started to cause confusion in the marketplace and people thinking that Microsoft 365 Copilot is being made free; Microsoft Copilot is part of Windows 11 so is kind of free so you can see where the confusion is.
Microsoft 365 Copilot is attached (as of writing this article) to your Microsoft 365 tenancy and is charged at $30 per user per month and only available through Enterprise Agreements as of the 1st November. Microsoft Copilot is available today (in certain regions only) in Windows 11 2023 H2 build.
I first got to publically show what I am calling the “Copilot Cheesewheel” at a conference last week and it has become a great aid to talk about Copilot starting with the main centralised AI companion in the middle and then peeling away the different layers of Copilot through different products. “Maybe I should have called it the Copilot Onion <– cheesewheel definetly sounds better”
Over the coming months you are going to see content from me around the Copilot system and its important for me to show you the true opportunities but a few of the headaches if you decide to implement any of the Copilots.
