To shame people for using work accounts for things like Instacart and 1800-Flowers.

But to answer the question, there are security use cases. Chrome recently had a security issue. Discover can let you know how many people are using Chrome and directly message them to inform them that they'll need to update their instance of Chrome. Similar, if you know of other sites or SaaS apps that have breaches, you can get out ahead of the issue. Instead of being reactive after you find out people were using a compromised app, you can be proactive about tackling issues.

First step for us at least will be to start getting that much needed overview of what apps we have and start categorising them - mapping them to the information we have currently in a spreadsheet.

As the product grows the ambition of course is to hopefully connect it to ERP for cost control and also hopefully be able to trigger workflows around useage.

With the custom triggers announced recently I see a future where we can deprovision anyone not using their license, asking them to renew via Atlassian Jira, Trigger a provisioning workflow on BC end.

I have gotten a lot of interesting feedback from my org so far regarding the product itself so will try to summarize and send over ☝

Hey bringing this to the top to see if anyone has found creative ways to use Discover.

Most recently we have used the applications grid list to investigate risky permissions and then search the internet to see if those services/providers have ever been compromised/breached. This builds a creative use case to make justified business decisions on determining where the budget should be spent and what apps should be unsanctioned. The other creative method is creating custom filters that map to compliance auditing initiatives or security practices. For example, I have one that is called compliance marketing - this filter is customized to filter for market apps, by dept, by ou, and last activity date for the users

• Sprawl and variable usage aka last active/activity date
• Orphaned or rogue accounts (users that are using apps that are not business related and detecting over sprawl OR detecting users that are no longer leveraging those apps)
• Duplicate instances of a provider
• Multiple owners of applications (accountability use cases)
• Migrating users to sanctioned vs unsanctioned apps
