As those of you who follow this blog know, managing access to SAAS Apps is at the very core of Azure AD. The system was architected from the ground up with the goal of making it easy to manage the exploding world of cloud applications! This app centric approach was a huge, risky bet for us when we first started the service, but it paid off big time as the business use of apps like Office 365, Salesforce.com, Google Apps & Box have soared.

: Trakopolis is a cloud based platform for interfacing mobile communications, software applications and location based services. The platform will enable you to efficiently manage your mobile workforce and assets
And of course if there are SaaS apps that your organization uses that you would like to see added, please let us know so we can work with them!
