Show Notes

The ninth episode of the podcast we now know and love as “We Love Ugly Data!” is out; available everywhere you get your podcasts from and, of course, in video form via YouTube (which we’ve embedded below). As always, it’s three topics in 30 minutes. Matt is chatting with Alan this time; skip to the topics you’re most interested in, or maybe sit back and enjoy the whole thing. Show notes are, as usual, included below the embedded video.

In this episode,

Topic 1: SharePoint Premium?

In a pod that is quite Redmond-heavy, Alan’s been out and about at a few Microsoft events and gives us the details about SharePoint Premium, what it is, where it came from, and what it means for customers and partners going forward. We’ve been following this particular story for a few years….

Topic 2: Copilots! Everywhere!

Doing their best to sidestep the ongoing shenanigans at OpenAI, Matt and Alan discuss the army of Copilots – and related tools – that Microsoft announced at their recent Ignite conference and what that means in the real work contexts that will define their ultimate success (basically, are they useful).

Topic 3: Citizen Developers?

As promised a few episodes ago, Matt and Alan are back with some of the results from the “Citizen Developers” survey they asked for help on a few months back. Here they discuss a couple of interesting findings, focusing on governance. Oh, and despite what they suggest here, you’re allowed to listen even if you didn’t contribute to the survey; we’re not that mean.
