Copilot for PowerBI

Copilot for PowerBI is now coming out in preview, and the feature will be enabled for all tenants. The feature can enhance data interaction and report creation using generative AI. If the organization is not ready for this roll-out, there are ways to restrict this feature based on security groups. There are controls to include or exclude groups.  One concern organizations have is the possibility of data being processed in a datacenter in a different region than their tenant. This can also be controlled by not allowing the usage of datacenters outside your region. Sign into the admin portal for PowerBI and check the settings associated with Copilot

Configure Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition with your SBC

Microsoft Ignite 2016 in Atlanta is now over. It has been a very busy week for all involved. It was a great opportunity to meet fellow MVP's, new and old partners and customers, and to get a glimpse of the future of Skype for Business (and whatevere else I got to go to).

I was given the opportunity to deliver a session on CCE as an appliance in a SBC, and had a great time doing so. The session is now live, and can be watched at Youtube:

I got great feedback, and might be following up with a couple of deep-dive sessions on the topic in near future.
