Frequently asked questions

What are the business barriers to AI?

In a study on barriers to AI adoption, understanding the benefits and finding use cases were cited as leading reasons why businesses were not using AI.

There also continues to be fear and resistance surrounding AI, which may cause employees to avoid it. 2 in 5 people allegedly think AI could have a negative impact on their job potential.

However, it’s impossible to ignore the rise of AI, and those who do may find themselves locked out of future opportunities.

By finding sensible, value-adding ways to get started, you can make your business AI-ready and keep up with the evolving technological landscape.

Why does mastering AI matter?

Although many organisations are experimenting with AI, you need to use it in a way that secures ROI. There is a financial cost associated with tools like Copilot, but the rewards can make it more than worthwhile if you embed it in your processes effectively.

By mastering AI, you will add significant value to your operations, maintain a competitive edge and drive productivity without needing to expand resource.

What is Copilot?

Copilot is Microsoft’s AI-powered assistant, designed to automate activities and drive productivity.

Unlike public-learning models like ChatGPT, Copilot protects your organisational data. You can feed it information about your company without fear it will be shared with external users. You’re protected against data breaches or information leaks.

It also integrates with existing Microsoft tools you already use, like Teams, Word, Excel and Outlook, helping you to complete tasks faster.
