The service was created to help travelers discover and book things to do – from museum visits to city tours, food and wine tastings, sports events and wellness activities – wherever they go, with the goal of enriching their travel experience. The service is available in 8 languages through various digital touchpoints: the B2C websites and apps with the Musement and Triposo brands; the platform for travel agencies; while platforms and integrations have been carried out with countless online distribution partners, from Google to hotels.com.
Musement is headquartered in Milan and has offices in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dubai, London, Munich, New York, Orlando and Paris. The company has been certified as a Great Place To Work® and in 2018 was listed in the top 20 Best Workplaces® in Italy. In September of the same year, Musement became part of the German group TUI, the largest integrated tourism operator in the world. Following its acquisition, Musement has remained an independent company in the TUI Destination Experiences division (TUI DX). The collaboration and integration between the two companies has already brought significant benefits to both and a strong growth in combined turnover, which in the last year reached 600 million euros.

The rearrangement of the company cloud accounts according to the Landing Zone best practices enabled Musement to save time by automating the set-up of the environments and to gain in security by implementing security baselines while creating and assigning new accounts.
By introducing CI/CD pipeline in the workflows and centrally managing configuration and access, Musement could switch from weekly deployments to daily releases, while minimizing unwanted or unuseful access to the company accounts for the DevOps teams.
The dashboard, built exactly on the team Operation needs, allowed IT managers to be prompt, efficient and effective in all their daily tasks.
beSharps’ Cloud Experts flanked Musement Developers during the infrastructure re-design, according to the best practices of the AWS Well-Architected Framework.
beSharp’s team took care of the whole infrastructure migration following the “6-Rs paradigm”:
Rehost, Refactor, Replatform, Repurchase, Retain e Retire. They successfully responded to the needs of the Musement Dev team by automating all the phases of the workflows: from the application releases to the configuration management, providing also effective management of the infrastructural changes. The new, secure multi-account structure was built according to the AWS Landing Zone best practices and it allowed the Musement dev team to get control and better management of all the daily tasks.
Thanks to a training-on-the-job approach, beSharp helped Musement developers to become completely independent in managing the new infrastructure.
