  • What are the benefits of using Azure Connect for Copilot Extensibility?

It leverages the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework and the Azure Well-Architected Framework to ensure robust and efficient data integration processes.
  • What is a fully managed service?
    A fully managed service means that Azure Connect takes care of all aspects of data integration, including setup, maintenance, and ongoing support. It utilizes managed APIs to seamlessly integrate critical data sources, providing organizations with a hassle-free data integration solution.
  • What is Copilot, and how does it relate to Azure Connect?
    Copilot is an AI-driven work assistant within the Microsoft 365 and Dynamics suite. Azure Connect expands Copilot's capabilities by providing access to data from external systems through managed APIs. This integration enables Copilot to perform a wider array of actions and provide richer, more informed responses by leveraging external data sources.
  • What is a Copilot Plugin API?
    A Copilot Plugin API is a mechanism that allows external systems, such as Salesforce, Workday, or SAP, to integrate seamlessly with Microsoft Copilot. Each Copilot Plugin API connects a specific external system with Copilot, enabling the exchange of data between the two platforms. By leveraging Copilot Plugin APIs, users can access and utilize data from various sources directly within Copilot, enhancing its capabilities and facilitating data-driven decision-making.
  • What is included in one Copilot Plugin API?
    Each Copilot Plugin API represents a connection point between an external system, such as Salesforce, and Microsoft Copilot. For example, if integrating Salesforce with Copilot, one Copilot Plugin API may include an endpoint for accessing opportunities data, while another API may provide access to accounts information. These APIs serve as gateways for retrieving specific datasets from the external system and making them available within Copilot, enabling users to access and analyze relevant data seamlessly. In this scenario, accessing opportunities and accounts data would require two Copilot Plugin APIs
  • Do Azure Connect plugins run on the customer's Azure tenant?

We adhere to the Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) and Landing Zone (LZ) guidance, ensuring that these plugins are not only optimized for performance within your specific Azure environment but also align with Microsoft's best practices for security, compliance, and scalability. This approach allows for a seamless integration and operation of Azure Connect plugins, directly within your own Azure infrastructure.
