Moody’s converts desktop applications to SaaS using Amazon AppStream 2.0

In an effort to reduce cost and improve customer experience, Moody’s was looking to migrate on-premises workloads to the cloud. Using Amazon AppStream 2.0, the company converted two .NET desktop applications to SaaS—significantly reducing the time required to onboard new customers and eliminating costs associated with managing on-premises solutions.

Watch Sreenivas Thirunagaru, Head of DevOps at Moody’s, speak at re:Invent 2023 about how by adopting AppStream 2.0, Moody's was able to quickly convert their desktop applications to software-as-a-service (SaaS) delivery without rewriting code. Since no changes were made to application functionality and the existing SSO process was retained, end users could continue using their familiar application without any additional training. With AppStream 2.0 and pay-as-you-go pricing, Moody's can now quickly react to customer demand without over-provisioning costly on-premises infrastructure. Previously, it took the company up to 3 months to onboard a new client. Now, it less than 3 days.


With AppStream 2.0, I can deliver an environment to a newly onboarded client in a few days versus a few months.”
