WELCOME TO SICILY RELEASE NOTES (PART 2)

This blog entry is a continuation of our series on new features deployed with “Sicily release”. Previously we announced some new Application Reports for Azure, plus some enhanced Auditing reports which provide additional insights into how end users are utilizing and adopting Microsoft Azure applications.

In preparation for Inspire 2017 we have been working hard to develop some exciting new features. To kick off our Inspire 2017 new feature release, we are delighted to announce some powerful new audit reporting capabilities.

WHAT’S NEW IN 4WARD365?

Knowing who is active in your cloud environment can be critical in helping your organization fulfill its compliance requirements. As usage of cloud services grow, it’s very important for IT support to strike the right balance between visibility and monitoring.

 

Let’s dive into the details.

MICROSOFT TEAM AUDIT

Microsoft Teams Audit provides additional audit events around Microsoft Teams, plus many more in other workloads. We are now tracking nearly 600 different activities. These report combines your organization’s application usage data with your user information to provide richer insights into how your users are utilizing different applications.

SHAREPOINT INACTIVE USERS

SharePoint Inactive Users shows a list of Inactive SharePoint users in the selected period of time. This report helps you see inactivity across sites and optimize licensing management and administration tasks.

SUBSCRIPTION LIST AND HISTORY REPORTS

Subscription List and History reports allow you to efficiently monitor your service, identify issues, plan support and report on the investment to your management team. They can be used to see subscriptions status and orders history. These reports can also be scheduled to run and broadcast out via e-mail on a predetermined basis.

DOCUMENT DB USAGE

 

Document DB usage is now available in production to move some collections on Document DB in order to centralize them. We have also tested Audit Activities which means that you could now have your log file Audit Data stored on your Azure subscription instead of our environment.

ENABLED AND DISABLED SERVICE PLAN IN CUSTOM REPORTS

Enabled and Disabled Service Plans in Custom Reports. This capability enables you to verify that specific services in a plan are disabled across your tenant. They can also be used to create reports to ensure that correct licenses are used for each user (i.e. if users with E5 haven’t enabled all services they could use a lower priced SKU).

FIXED ISSUES AND OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

    • Central Authentication: authentication is now managed by a central microservice. This enables new scenario like:
          • Any portal can be used like https://portal.4ward365.com or https://usportal.4ward365.com and they will receive data from the DC hosting the selected organization.
          • In the long run we’ll be able to let customers, or partners, host data in their own Azure environment instead of our central DC, ensuring better security and data protection.
          • During signup customers can now choose which datacenter to store their tenant’s data
    • Administrative roles now include UPN
    • New Management Action for Multi Factor Authentication settings
    • User Card changes
          • Administrative roles added
          • Application Usage Details per user
