Yes, the advantages of monitoring license usage, discovering applications and mitigating risk present a solution to the growing complexity of Shadow IT and must be considered as part of the overall governance strategy in your IT plan. Once you’ve identified applications in use but developed outside the IT department, you determine the sensitive information the App may include.

Through the SaaSLicense-Concur integration, customers are able to seamlessly support Application Discovery by flagging applications which are:

#1) being used and expensed by your employees and

#2) are not currently part of your SaaSLicence registered application cataloged.

The SaaSLicense Discovery module alerts users when unregistered’ applications are identified through Concur expense report data comparisons. These discoveries empower your IT team to get ahead of these unsanctioned expenses, and not try to stop it, but rather get control of the risk, inventory the application, do a proper security review and most importantly help control the on-going cost.

In order to perform this discovery, from the Concur Expense Reports v3 which is available through the API, SaaSLicense will acquire the following properties from the Concur API response:

OwnerLoginID property is acquired in order to perform a comparison answering the question, Who expensed an ‘unregistered’.  

LastComment and Name (the name of the expensed item) properties are acquired in order to identify the application that was expensed, as well as the type of transaction. These properties are used to identify if the expense is software/non software related expense.
