Joining AWS IQ has been one of my 2020 highlights, as it has afforded me the opportunity to work with a number of companies from different industries. I recently worked with a company that provides facility automation & software solution services, with core competencies in system analysis & design engineering, controls, installation and post-sales Support.
My client was looking for a modern, efficient & cost-effective platform to promote a collaborative work environment for her employees. I presented Amazon FSx and Amazon WorkDocs as possible solutions. Seeing as the client wanted a solution that would allow storage mapping to users’ local computers as well as file locking functionality, they opted for Amazon WorkDocs.
The implementation was quick. I integrated Amazon Simple AD with WorkDocs. This enabled all employees to access individual and shared contents from their native desktop file systems through WorkDocs Drive, through a web user interface, and through a mobile application. Employees are now able to access and share folders faster than with their legacy network file shares.
Overall, my client was impressed with the simplicity, security, cost effectiveness and speed of the Amazon WorkDocs solution, as well as the ease of administration. It was a pleasure to work with this client and I look forward to continuing to deliver solutions on AWS IQ.
