How it works
About this consultant
How it works
The vDaaS Center of Excellence (CoE) supplies a full life cycle of services to aid in your digital workplace transformation. vDaaS is ideal for business challenges such as remote workforce and work-from-home personnel; contingent and contract-based workforce; on- and offshore developers; bring-your-own-device workplace setups; and mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures. Digital workplace transformation includes not only conversion of the desktop and applications to Amazon WorkSpaces and Amazon AppStream 2.0; it also consists of application life-cycle management, endpoint delivery, and support, monitoring, and management of the platforms as well as what is happening inside the desktop and application environment.
As initial components of the CoE, Virtusa offers cloud economics analysis to determine true total cost of ownership (TCO), return on investment (ROI), and net present value (NPV). A desktop delivery assessment investigates application inventory and complexity, end-user profile complexity, and compute bundle right-sizing. All vDaaS delivery services are built around the AWS Well-Architected Framework for optimal delivery of Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0.
As part of the vDaaS consulting engagement, Virtusa will execute a proof of concept and proof of value. This will show that the technology will work in the customer's environment, as well as proving the solution's value for the organization and its end users.
Virtusa's enterprise integration experience will ensure that all integration points from software delivery, asset management, automation frameworks, and service management tools are delivered as part of the Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0 deployment. The consulting offer may also include managed IT services including end-to-end management of all Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream 2.0 operations, application and business unit on-boarding, and end-user curbside support.
