Supported data sources for Microsoft 365 Copilot

Brass Contributor

As many are eagerly awaiting Copilot features in Microsoft 365 I have some questions that I hope that you can shed some light on. 

* As my understanding, you are now rolling out semantic search capabilities in Microsoft 365 using Graph Search API. Does this mean that data that relates to Graph such as Data Connectors in Graph from 3. party data sources will also be indexed and therefore available in CoPilot?

* For organizations that are running O365 tenants in locations such as Norway where Open AI services are not available and are not even on the roadmap, will they be able to access the service? or would they need to reallocate the tenant?

There's little information on how the semantic index will search external data connectors. It's only references M365 data. Given that search index is available today it might be available in the future as part of the LLM. Semantic Index for Copilot will be available to Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 customers and will provide visibility of your user and company data. This should help you see the connections that Copilot will make across your people, documents and other data in Microsoft 365, and improve them as needed.

As for data residancy the officially documentation is here, and explains other regions might be used:
Microsoft 365 Copilot will be available for enterprise customers on Nov. 1, 2023, along with Microsoft 365 Chat, a new AI assistant that will completely transform the way you work.
