OpenAI Launches ChatGPT Enterprise to Cater to Large Businesses’ AI Needs

Leading artificial intelligence (AI) innovator OpenAI has announced the release of a tailored version of its ChatGPT platform, specifically aimed at addressing the requirements of large enterprises. The move serves to enhance the alignment between OpenAI and its major supporter, Microsoft, by providing customers with a broader range of AI capabilities.

Named ChatGPT Enterprise, this new offering boasts enhanced features such as heightened security, improved privacy measures, and faster access to OpenAI’s cutting-edge technology. The platform has already gained traction among notable early adopters, including prominent companies like Block, Carlyle, and Estee Lauder Companies.

OpenAI initially gained significant attention with the launch of ChatGPT targeted towards general consumers back in November. This consumer-focused variant quickly gained popularity, revolutionizing the use of generative AI in daily tasks encompassing writing, coding, and more. It reached a remarkable milestone of 100 million monthly active users by January.

Surprisingly, despite employer discouragement, many individuals in the United States have utilized ChatGPT to assist with work-related assignments, as revealed by a Reuters/Ipsos poll. With the advent of ChatGPT Enterprise, OpenAI aims to encourage employers to embrace the utilization of ChatGPT within professional settings.

Microsoft, as a major player in the tech industry, already provides businesses access to ChatGPT via its Azure OpenAI Service. However, the previous requirement for businesses to be Azure customers in order to use this service has been circumvented with the introduction of ChatGPT Enterprise. Subscribers to ChatGPT Enterprise no longer need to be Azure subscribers, expanding the accessibility of the service.
