End User Computing on AWS

Secure solutions for the agile enterprise

Today's workforce is increasingly mobile. They're working remotely, on the go, and moving from one project to the next. And, they're collaborating across borders, time zones, and organizations. We built AWS End User Computing (EUC) services to give you the agility to respond to the changing needs of your workforce. You can scale up or scale down on-demand, providing your users with the resources they need, all without deploying and operating infrastructure.

Fully-managed

AWS EUC Services let you onboard new users with a few clicks or automated API calls, and remove them just as easily. You simply mange your users, applications, images, and policies, and no longer operate complicated hardware deployments.

Pay-as-you-go

AWS EUC Services help free you from unwieldy licensing contracts and pricing plans. You can add and remove users on-demand, and pay only for what you use, when you use it. You no longer need to overbuy hardware and licenses for peak user capacity.

Reliable & secure

AWS EUC Services are built for the most security-sensitive organizations. Your company data is no longer stored on users' devices, and you control access with fine grained controls. Customers across highly regulated industries choose AWS EUC Services to help meet their global compliance requirements for finance, retail, healthcare, government, and more.

GE

GE

GE Renewable Energy harnesses the earth’s most abundant resources – the strength of the wind, the heat of the sun and the force of water; delivering green electrons to power the world’s biggest economies and the most remote communities. Amazon AppStream 2.0 let GE’s IT team simplify their application management process by giving their global business units the ability to securely manage their own applications.

Over the last five years, our application grew from a single deployment to a global user base with data stored across the world. It was simply unmanageable for central IT to patch and update the application across every location and maintain backend databases for each of them. We decided to consolidate our databases on AWS, but also needed to simplify application management, and of course keep our application close to our database to ensure the performance our users had.
 
We needed a solution that was easy to deploy, simple to manage, and highly scalable that didn’t require us to rewrite our application. Typical application streaming solutions required purchasing expensive licenses, procuring and deploying infrastructure, and building out and operating complicated environments. And, on top of all of that we would continue to be the single team that had to build, patch, and maintain applications. The solution couldn’t scale.
 
Instead, we chose Amazon AppStream 2.0. With Amazon AppStream 2.0, we don’t operate any infrastructure, and scale on-demand to any number of users. And, we’re no longer the single team maintaining applications for each business unit. We simply configure a golden image, and let each team manage their application on it. This saves us days of work every month as we grow our deployment from hundreds to thousands of users.“

– Glorius Gaduang, Principle Cloud Architect, GE Renewable Energy

Mergers and acquisitions

COREXPERT by TEAMWORK

COREXPERT

COREXPERT by TEAMWORK is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner based in France with 12 years of experience delivering technology projects. COREXPERT was recently acquired by TEAMWORK group, and quickly needed every user to be able to securely access their SAP environment through SAP GUI. With AppStream 2.0, the entire deployment took only two days.

"Once TEAMWORK completed the acquisition of COREXPERT, both business teams needed to access TEAMWORK's on-premises SAP environment. To do this, we had to provide COREXPERT users an SAP GUI client and enable secure access to our network. However, many COREXPERT users have Macs. There was no easy way to install and manage the full desktop version of SAP GUI for these users, and we couldn't securely connect them to TEAMWORK’s network and SAP environment.
 
AppStream 2.0 solved both of these problems. We deployed one version of SAP GUI on AppStream 2.0 within TEAMWORK's network, and streamed it to every user. With AppStream 2.0, COREXPERT users instantly access the full Windows desktop version of SAP GUI on their Macs. They simply open a browser, sign in with their existing credentials, and quickly start using the full desktop version of SAP GUI.
 
Now, we maintain a single version of SAP GUI on AppStream 2.0, and the entire team can access it through any computer. We don't need to worry about application deployment, or managing VPN connections to our SAP environment. The entire deployment completed in under two days."

– Alexis Dagues, CEO of COREXPERT, a TEAMWORK company

“With Amazon WorkSpaces, we no longer need to worry about the inevitable virtual desktop infrastructure refresh cycle because our desktops run securely on the AWS cloud. Performance and stability is better than before, and we were able to introduce the solution quickly. Best of all, Amazon WorkSpaces did not require any upfront investment, and we pay only for what we use. We are now working to retire our on-premises VDI solution entirely.”
