Microsoft has revealed a broad range of plans to bring generative AI to businesses. The Copilot brand now spans productivity tools, collaboration, and business applications, and their Azure OpenAI Service  will offer any developer new ways to incorporate the technology into their own offerings.

Our guest, Microsoft MVP and Forceworks CEO Steve Mordue, has been thinking about the impact AI will have on investments in developers and the development of custom applications. He wrote about Microsoft's enthusiasm for no-code/low-code citizen developers and why that view could be as unrealistic as the myth of the so-called full-stack developer. Microsoft's Copilot investments could expose the weak points in how customers use Power Platform or how they customize their business applications more broadly, Steve says. He even offers a few guesses at what could come next as Microsoft and others in the generative AI market accelerate their efforts.
