Nasuni Empowers Customers to Unlock Critical Data Insights with Microsoft Copilot AI

Nasuni, a leading hybrid cloud storage solution, today released new guides to help customers accelerate integrating Microsoft’s cutting-edge Copilot AI for use with their Nasuni managed data repositories and operational workflows.

Microsoft Copilot is a powerful artificial intelligence assistant integrated across Microsoft’s application portfolio that can understand natural language, analyse data, and provide intelligent responses. Nasuni is educating customers to enable them to create customised Copilot experiences that use a customer’s unstructured data set to unlock further business insights and revenue streams.

Charles Douglass, IT Director at McKim and Creed said, “Nasuni educated us about how we could create custom AI Copilots using our Nasuni data. We have now created an initial Copilot and look forward to continuing to understand how we can refine it to provide natural language interaction to the documents within our business.”

“While Microsoft Copilot is an incredible general-purpose AI assistant, its true enterprise value is realised when it is infused with an organisation’s domain-specific data,” said Jim Liddle, Chief Innovation Officer of Nasuni. “File data is typically locked up in siloed environments, making AI impossible. With Nasuni, customers can consolidate their data in the cloud and then leverage AI. We created our own Copilot chatbot that leverages our Nasuni data, called ‘Ask Nasuni’, that is deployed within the Microsoft Teams environment for our employees to interact with. It only makes sense that our customers would want to do something similar to leverage their own corporate information.”

The Nasuni File Data Platform enables companies to consolidate data silos spread across multiple locations to a central cloud. Then, with Nasuni’s guidance, customers can:
• Use Copilot AI with Nasuni managed unstructured data sets.
• Build a custom Copilot by teaching it to use Nasuni data for key workflows such as sales and/or support chatbots.
• Increase employee productivity by leveraging ‘locked-in’ institutional knowledge.
• Deploy secure, private Copilot instances tailored to a company’s needs.

Marco Accardo, Director of Information Technology at RWDI, said: “Using Copilot AI for institutional knowledge is something that we are working towards in RWDI. Nasuni has been helping us as we explore this use case and look to leverage the knowledge within our Nasuni managed data.”
