Deliver Online Trials and SaaS without application rewrite using Amazon AppStream 2.0

ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) and service providers are increasingly looking to adopt cloud native solutions to host their windows desktop applications. This transformation will help them meet growing customer demand and drive competitive differentiation.

If you are an ISV or a service provider looking to migrate away from your legacy infrastructure to the cloud, AWS offers the right tools to help transform your business and SaaSify your applications. SaaS transformation is a journey in which ISVs and service providers transition from a client server based legacy architecture to a cloud based micro services architecture sold in a subscription based pricing model.

This eBook is designed to help you get an overview of how AWS can help you transform your technology using Amazon AppStream 2.0. Amazon AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed application streaming service that helps you modernize the delivery of your training, trials and demos and launch a SaaS solution without rewriting your Windows desktop applications.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how customers deliver online trials, trainings and demos using Amazon AppStream 2.0
  • Find out about customers migrating to SaaS with AWS
  • Read customer testimonials and understand how they benefited with AppStream 2.0
