Azure AD: new application usage reports

As we mentioned in a recent blog entry there are many new Azure activity reports that we now have available in our 4ward365 solution. This blog will cover one of the most exciting new reports that includes Azure application usage.
Understanding how end-users interact with different applications is an important step in driving more usage and addressing issues that may impact the acceptance of certain applications. That is why we are excited to announce the rollout of usage reporting for applications that are integrated with Azure Active Directory (AD).
Now, let’s dive a bit deeper to explain the details around these new reporting features.

The new usage report makes it easy for IT administrators to monitor application activity and identify any trends or adoption issues. It also provides key metrics to provide IT management about Azure application investments.

All of these new reports provide information that includes:

    • Number of unique users in the last 30 days
    • Total access amount in the last 30 days
    • User access in different timeframes: 7 days, 14 days, 30 days, 60 days and 90 days;

Azure AD reporting
The reports provide a full list of application usage based on date and time for user activity. Each application service, such as Dynamics CRM and Nintex, has its own title that surfaces key activity data. This enables IT administrators to create reports which outline the usage and the activity within that specific application. To view detailed information by application or by individual user, simply click the specific title or use the provided filters at the top of the reporting dashboard.

From within the 4ward365 interface you can get more information on selected applications:

    • List of users
    • Number of distinct (unique) users running a specific application for a given time range
    • Last activity date tracked by Microsoft

For organizations that are curious about the adoption of Azure applications, these new activity reports provide extremely useful information on common applications such as:

    • Microsoft Visual Studio
    • Salesforce
    • Dynamics CRM
    • Nintex
    • … and other custom applications integrated with Azure AD
