We've noticed a significant decline from people accidentally or intentionally clicking on things

What is our primary use case?

We have three instances of environments: * All of our corporate stuff. * A fake company that we test things with. * An area for all the shows. Each show is treated as its own company. When you have green-lit a movie, you say, "I have $50 million to make this movie," then they just burn it down. Once the money is gone, it's gone. Once you make the movie and you deliver it for distribution, then you don't need the company anymore. You just dissolve it and everybody who invested into that gets the return on investment. We are cloud first, so we are 100% cloud. We don't have a data center. We use… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "If we look at four to five years ago, we had close to six or eight people click a link in an email per month. Now, we are probably down to about five or six clicks a year, if not less."
  • "Being cloud first and because we are in the movie business, we use a lot of Macintoshes. So, there is absolutely no reason for us to have Active Directory whatsoever. However, if you are using Office 365, you must have Active Directory in order to reset passwords. Even though we have a single sign-on provider, we must have Azure Active Directory for Office 365, which is really stupid. As a cloud application, you would think that I don't need Active Directory, which I don't need for anything else except Office 365. We have one server inside that space to help us manage Active Directory just for Office 365. This is a very sore point, but it is what it is."

What other advice do I have?

I would highly recommend it. I would rate Avanan as 10 out of 10. It is used across the entire enterprise. This year we have extended it out beyond corporate to movie shows. Going forward, all new movies and television shows are leveraging the platform. After a year and a half of having it at corporate, we moved it out of corporate onto other projects outside. So, it has very much expanded its presence inside and outside the organization.
