Siemens uses Amazon AppStream 2.0 to provide virtual test drives, demo environments, and deliver training of its CAD software application, NX software. Siemens' NX is a powerful CAD software application that helps design and manufacturing customers deliver better products faster and more efficiently.

"AppStream 2.0 enabled us to seamlessly integrate virtual labs with our global digital learning platform “SITRAIN access”. This enables our customers to apply what they have learned in practice – even in digital learning. Customers access a fully equipped virtual exercise workplace consisting of engineering software, simulated hardware, and process models. Customers don’t need to download software and can access the labs from windows and non-windows devices. Amazon AppStream 2.0 provides every customer a dedicated instance, and in this sandbox approach, errors or experiments have no effect on a real system. Customers also have the ability to save and load their exercises as often as they want. AppStream enabled us to provide customers high-performance access from anywhere, anytime, with only an internet connection and a browser required.”

Philipp Rieckborn, Head of Knowledge Management and Training, Siemens Digital Industries

"AppStream 2.0 provides us the ability to instantly deliver Siemens’ NX for virtual test drives, software testing, and training. Previously, many hours were being spent on software installation and system setup for these activities. AppStream 2.0 solved this problem. With AppStream 2.0, we can deploy the latest version of NX and provide customers instant access to the application through their browser with no downloads, installs, or configuration required. And, the performance for our customers is indistinguishable from a powerful mobile workstation. We can now scale on-demand to any number of users we want to support. This makes it easier to help our customers get the benefits of the latest version of NX with reduced IT overhead.”

"A major win for us with Amazon AppStream 2.0 has been the ability to scale our SaaS infrastructure without procuring or managing any hardware and push out a high volume of releases within a short period of time. AppStream 2.0 allows us to take a singular image, automate its production, use release pipelines to apply the new image to a fleet and roll that fleet underneath a stack. AppStream 2.0 gives us immense flexibility and a silent zero downtime blueprint deployment. The amount of time required per WSO release has dramatically reduced from 40 hours to just 3 hours using AppStream 2.0. We have been able to eliminate 30-hours' worth of downtime with real time updates and no downtime. Customers have gone from an 18-months upgrade cycle to a 3-months cycle while being able to keep software up to date with latest features. Using Blue/Green AppStream 2.0 fleets, we are able to release WSO applications without impacting the internal or external user experience.
In terms of client facing benefits, AppStream 2.0 has afforded us the ability to federate our customer user access. A federated model is something we could not do using the traditional model with TS farms or RDP. With AppStream 2.0, customers have a single point of login to access their applications and complete their jobs. Each user gets a dedicated instance and never shares a virtual machine with other users. This is a huge win for us from an end user perspective as it allows us to eliminate the cross-user impact seen in the traditional model."

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, Principal Cloud Architect, GE Renewable Energy
