Oil Search operates in a challenging IT environment in terms of providing timely access to applications and platforms for its workforce. A number of Oil Search users require significant computing capacity to carry out their business function, including access to a key modelling, mapping and correlating software application that requires specific high performance computing hardware to operate.
Looking for ways to provide access in a more efficient and scalable way, Oil Search trialled the use of Amazon AppStream 2.0, undertaking a Proof of Concept for the application, which identified the AppStream service as a likely alternative offering substantial operational improvements for users
CMD Solutions was engaged by Oil Search to progress the PoC to production deployment for AppStream 2.0 and Amazon Workspaces. The result? Oil Search have emerged with a modernised AWS foundation that provides a cohesive, single sign-on desktop experience and benefits that include computing performance improvement, user location flexibility, consistent security configuration and a reduced reliance on infrastructure.
