At Ignite, Microsoft has today announced the Cortana Skill Kit for Enterprise, bringing customizable Cortana experiences and skills to those in the business and enterprise markets. This is the same Cortana Skills experience you know and love on PCs today, now tailored for enterprise.

Cortana Skills for Enterprise provides an end-to-end solution that allows enterprises to build custom skills and agents, and deploy them directly to their organization. Built using the Microsoft Bot Framework and "Azure Cognitive Services Language Understanding Service" (what a mouthful,) Microsoft says the use of Cortana and its skill capabilities should improve workforce productivity.

Right now, Cortana Skills for Enterprise is available by invite only, and will slowly be opened up to more companies and developers in the coming weeks and months. Microsoft has lots planned for Cortana, specially around its usefulness in the "productivity" market. Perhaps we'll hear more about Cortana over the next few weeks.
