Get IT Buy-In

Copilot can significantly improve IT productivity. But first, IT needs to understand Copilot’s long-term potential and support implementation. With IT’s knowledge of your systems, the rollout can align with business objectives. An IT ally will also help answer questions during adoption.

Move to the Cloud

Microsoft 365 Copilot requires Microsoft Azure. If you don’t already use Azure, migration planning is crucial. Moving to Azure enables Copilot access, boosts reliability and security, and may even reduce costs. It unlocks new agility and innovation.

Understand Licensing Needs

Microsoft currently requires a 300 license minimum purchase at $30/user/month. Each user also needs an M365 E3/E5 license. Review agreements to optimize and align licenses to roles that will benefit most. If renewal is soon, limit licenses to retain negotiation leverage.

Prioritize Data Governance

Copilot thrives on well-organized data. Controls and compliance are critical to maximize Copilot’s capabilities and prevent unauthorized access. Data privacy and security are crucial.

Drive User Adoption

User adoption and change management are key to realizing Copilot’s productivity gains. Guide users on workflows and processes to embrace its capabilities. Partnering with a change expert can accelerate results.
