All About Microsoft’s AI-Powered SharePoint Revolution

Recently, Microsoft made an exciting announcement at their conference in Las Vegas that has captured the attention of organisations worldwide. The big news is that Microsoft is infusing Artificial Intelligence (AI) throughout the entire Office 365 platform. Named “Copilot,” this AI implementation promises to bring remarkable advancements and benefits to users. Intelligent Decisioning had the privilege of being present at the conference when this groundbreaking announcement was made to an audience of 2,500 people. Now, let’s delve into the top highlights of Microsoft’s AI integration and explore how it can transform your organisation.

Simpler Authoring:

SharePoint users will soon witness the arrival of Copilot, an invaluable assistant that streamlines content creation. With natural language capabilities, Copilot will enable users to author SharePoint sites and pages effortlessly. This feature promises a significant boost in speed and ease for content authors. Moreover, a new SharePoint home page and co-authoring pages experiences will allow content authors to collaborate in real time, eliminating the frustrations of locked editing.

Benefits:

  1. Increased effectiveness and efficiency for content authors.
  2. Rapid onboarding of new content authors.

Compelling Content:

Microsoft is revamping the SharePoint user interface (UI), enabling users to create visually stunning sites and pages that captivate their audience. Embracing images and videos in innovative ways, you can now express your brand with unprecedented creativity. Additionally, you will have the flexibility to specify your corporate font, empowering your SharePoint sites to reflect your organisation’s unique identity. These UI updates can also be applied retroactively to existing SharePoint sites.

Benefits:

  1. Engage users with visually stunning sites, fostering greater communication and collaboration.
  2. Leverage the power of video through new templates and capabilities.

Deeper Engagement:

Seamless integrations between SharePoint, email, Teams, and Microsoft Viva offer unparalleled engagement opportunities. Now, SharePoint can meet your readers where they work, allowing you to measure the impact of your content effectively. Furthermore, the integration of SharePoint pages into emails enables you to preview and send full news posts directly to your readers’ inboxes.

Benefits:

  1. Reach and engage your audience more effectively, increasing communication and collaboration.
  2. Gain insights into content performance and make data-driven decisions.

Flexible Platform:

Microsoft’s commitment to SharePoint shines through their investment in new site and page templates, SharePoint Framework, and Microsoft Graph. Your existing sites, solutions, and content will seamlessly transition to the updated user experience, enabling you to tailor your SharePoint sites to specific workflows and integrate them with custom applications.

Benefits:

  1. Continuity of support for your organisation’s unique needs.
  2. Future-proofing your SharePoint platform for continued growth and innovation.
