Contemplating Copilot? Make sure you stay in the driver’s seat
We know it’s all exciting stuff.
Which is why many organisations will want to move fast on this.
But at Kocho, we’re advising our clients to take a measured approach and plan carefully before you jump in.
The last thing you want to do is surface meaningless, or worse, dangerous data to the wrong people. Imagine giving employees the power to uncover your CEO’s salary. Or inadvertently reveal an employee’s personal details.
It could happen.
Do you fully understand the potential ROI? Do you have the necessary layers of security and compliance in place?
This is why we’re advocating clients develop a clear business case and user adoption plan. To consider data hygiene, security, and compliance issues ahead of deploying this powerful new tech into their environment.
We believe there are some critical pre-requisites to consider before you turn anything on:
Engaging business change consultants early.
Ensuring proper data access, security, and compliance.
Effective communication, user training, and adoption.
Strengthening identity governance procedures.
To help our clients, Kocho has developed a Copilot Strategy Advisory Process that will help you steer a safe path to AI success.
