Bing Enterprise Chat enabled by default for all

There are a lot of great things happening in the generative AI space these days. Microsoft is determined to be a part of this revolution, and they have announced a lot of coming services. One of the new features that was released a few weeks ago was the Bing Chat Enterprise (BCE) which is a new feature that enables your organization to use AI-powered chat for work while keeping your user and business data protected.  BCE is available in preview to Microsoft 365 customers with E3, E5, A3, A5 (faculty only), Business Standard and Business Premium licenses, but not to customers in government clouds.  At first BCE was an opt-in feature, but it is now turned on by default for eligible customers who have not previously opted out of it. Should your organization want to opt-out of BCE, it is possible to do so through the BCEAdmin panel   BCE and Bing Chat might seem similar, but Bing Chat does not offer commercial data protection and should only be used for personal use.

Get-userandpolicy V_1 released

I have been working on a deployment lately, where I was tasked with identifying policies and if any of these could be removed after a huge migration.

This could all be done through CSCP, but the task was slow and "painful". I decided to find a quicker way to complete the job. And sure enough. A couple of hours creating some code, made the task so much easier.

This was not the first deployment I had to do policy management and cleanup, and I do not think it's going to be the last. So I decided to make a script of the code and publish it. Get-userandpolicy is the end result of my work.

I have made it available on the Technet Gallery, so if you need a quick way to get an overview over your policies and users assigned to them you are welcome to download and try it: Get-userandpolicy

As always, feedback and suggestions appreciated ;)
