3/5 1. Intelligent operations: The Work Trend Index reports that 62% of frontline workers are willing to delegate tasks to AI. Harnessing AI to reduce administrative clutter, allowing frontline warriors to concentrate on driving business growth. With the help of AI, frontline managers can quickly identify open items, such as open shifts, that need to be covered with a new Shifts plugin for Microsoft 365 Copilot.  (Microsoft )

Trusted experiences: To deal with privacy and compliance issues, organizations will soon be able to enrol Android and iOS devices into Microsoft Entra ID shared device mode to enable a single sign-in and out experience for various Microsoft apps.
