Cloud App Discovery Preview

Introducing customers to all available Apps in Azure Active Directory Applications, which is simple Apps to distribute among users within a Portal for gathering Cloud Solutions used in Your Company.

All these vendors have joined Microsoft in building a great database of Apps we can serve Our customers With, and they all have som sort of Single Sign-On.

Single Sign-On With Federation is when the Cloud Vendor has Federated their Online Service With the Microsoft Federation Gateway.
Single Sign-On With Password is when we use the credentials hosted in Azure Active Directory.
Single Sign-On With ADFS is when we have Federated Our AD With Microsoft Federation Gateway and Our Cloud Vendors.

As administrators we can also input credentials for Our users when assigning the Apps, because we need to assign the Apps we want the users to have available.

And this is where the Cloud App Discovery Online Service comes in handy.

Cloud App Discovery is a Online Service we can hand over a big data collected With an agent on all computers to the rather large computer power in Microsofts Datacenters.

All analytics will be done in the Cloud and out we get a good list of vendors that have developed an SaaS App for the Azure AD Apps Portal.

Sign Up for a free Preview or Sign-In if you have an Azure AD tenant, then distribute the agent the same way you distribute Applications. Maybe With Intune Company Portal, which be a New blogpost later.

Keep in mind: Windows 7 and newer machines supported, but you can try on Windows XP if you want.
