Harnessing AI for Enhanced Productivity

Insights from the Microsoft 365 Community Conference

Harnessing AI for Enhanced Productivity

Attending the Microsoft 365 Community Conference is an essential part of staying ahead in the rapidly evolving landscape of digital productivity and security. "We attend all of Microsoft's strategic conferences so you don't have to," says Michael Hutchinson, Nitec’s Operations Director. "I don't pick the venues, so if they insist on me traveling all the way to Orlando, Florida, I guess I'll have to take one for the team." 

All joking aside, Microsoft’s 365 Community Conference provides a vital, annual benchmark for Nitec’s baseline productivity services alongside our relentless focus on security. This conference is a cornerstone event, allowing us to bring back key insights to enhance our service offerings. 

But to keep the recap short and sweet, here are they three key takeaways from the event: 

1. AI-Powered Productivity with Microsoft Copilot 

Microsoft Copilot was of course the hot topic of the event, emphasizing its role in enhancing productivity through AI integration. The focus was on how Copilot can streamline operations and improve efficiency across various M365 applications like Outlook and Teams. 

2. Introduction of SharePoint Premium 

SharePoint Premium was introduced as a new AI-powered content management tool. This service aims to revolutionize how organisations manage, share, and collaborate on documents. By utilising AI, SharePoint Premium offers enhanced search capabilities, automated content organization, and intelligent insights, making it a powerful addition to the M365 suite. 

3. Enhanced Security and Compliance 

As a security and compliance focused company, it was amazing to hear all about Microsoft's advanced security features and compliance tools designed to protect data amidst the world of ever-increasing AI integration, and how we can utilise these to keep our own and our clients' data safe. 

At Nitec, security is of the highest importance. Our security-driven menu is one of our core services, and if you participate in our regular monthly review calls, you’re likely already familiar with these features. However, if you find terms like multi-factor authentication compliant devices, risky user alerting, client access management, vulnerability management, and end-user security awareness unfamiliar, you might need a refresher, or perhaps we need to communicate more effectively! 

In today's fast-paced business environment, productivity is more critical than ever. Beyond security, we offer a transformative suite of services designed to enhance productivity, including: 

  • Microsoft Copilot: Our favourite AI-powered assistant that helps streamline your workflow. 
  • Teams Rooms with IntelliFrame: Advanced meeting solutions for seamless collaboration. 
  • Teams Telephony: Integrate calling capabilities directly within Microsoft Teams. 
  • Teams File Share: Simplify file sharing and collaboration. 
  • Teams Video Conferencing with Intelligent Recap: Enhance virtual meetings with automated summaries and highlights. 
  • Nitec HR Portal: A centralized platform for managing leave and hybrid working schedules. 
  • Microsoft Viva: Enhance employee experience and engagement. 
  • SharePoint Document Management: Efficiently manage and share documents. 
  • Teams Intranet: Create a unified communication hub.
