THE BUSINESS CASE FOR MIGRATION

Hays had undertaken a massive technology innovation and renovation programme and Proventeq worked with them as Solution Architecture & Design consultants; helping Hays achieve technology innovations by providing specialist consultancy. 


 

THE CHALLENGES

  • To integrate the core CRM system with back-office applications 
  • Provide an effective search platform to allow visibility across over 10,000,000 CVs. 
  • Redevelop business-critical applications to meet emerging business needs. 
  • Modernise the existing Hays website.  
  • Insight into operations to provide accurate and actionable information. 
  • Need for public-facing enterprise mobility solutions across key business functions. 
  • Full fidelity migration of over 1,000,000 compliance documents into SharePoint.

 

THE SOLUTION

Solution Architecture & Design - Business critical applications like compliance management & contracts management using a mix of latest Microsoft .Net and Oracle technologies. 

EAI - Designing an SOA platform for integrating the core CRM system with back-office (PeopleSoft) and other business applications. 

Enterprise Search – Complex integration of Google Search Appliance to the core CRM platform for searching through the key business entities (candidates, contacts and jobs). 

ECM advisory – New generation portal and content managed website using the Oracle WebCenter/UCM Platform. 

BI - Operational Management Information platform using Oracle BI as the front end and SSAS as back end. 

Mobile Apps - iPhone and Android applications for Job searching (live) and timesheet submission. 

Content Migration – Migration of legacy Intranet site on to SharePoint, migration of 1.1 Million+ Compliance documents into SharePoint and migration of legacy website to Oracle WebCenter.   


 

THE RESULTS

.‌

A universal platform

Migrating from five different source systems can pose different challenges. Our expert team merged millions of assets into one, easy-to-use site which increased the accessibility of relevant documents for their employees. 

Mitigated Downtime

Successful consolidation of content from various source platforms and multiple repositories into Microsoft SharePoint. Business downtime during migration was greatly reduced using managed migration.

Safe content

Security was extremely important to Babcock. Each piece of content was reassigned the same level of security as within the origin system, to ensure the asset library remained protected.
