Making the move to Amazon WorkSpaces

Sensis made the strategic decision to move their Virtual Desktop infrastructure to cloud. They chose Amazon WorkSpaces.

Challenge

Sensis identified a strategic initiative to transition from its internally hosted VMware View Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to a cloud hosted Amazon WorkSpaces environment. The new solution had to perform equally or better than the existing on premises solution to avoid penalties from depending business partners.

Outcome

Sensis and Olikka delivered a highly successful (PoC) environment that through considerable testing proved to be more efficient than the existing on premises solution. Olikka then moved into production, with extensive pre-migration planning and collaboration to ensure all internal stakeholders were given an opportunity to contribute to the project. This increased internal Amazon WorkSpaces knowledge and engagement while lifting stakeholder satisfaction.

The Benefits

Olikka identified and deployed Operation Support Processes for smooth AWS user work experience and implementation, including: WorkSpaces image management, reporting and on-boarding, off-boarding and decommissioning.
