Dubai-based recruitment technology firm Cazar is moving its entire cloud technology to the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.
In the past couple of months, Microsoft and Cazar have collaborated closely to migrate the Sniperhire platform and its customers in more than 50 countries over to Azure.
During the process Cazar utilised the best of breed PaaS technologies in Azure such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) to drive new services for their customers and product innovation.
Guy Rickett, CEO of Cazar, said: “Today’s employers want flexible, mobile technology that is easy to implement and secure and that can evolve with their business.
“Today, Azure is the gold standard in the industry, so it was a natural next step for us. Since our migration, we’ve already seen higher development speeds and reduced time-to-market for new features.
“Our partnership with Microsoft allows us to bring key elements of artificial intelligence to our product development plans moving forward. Through machine learning, language-processing algorithms and the use of chatbots, we can augment employers’ abilities to connect and engage with the right candidates quickly.”
According to Accenture, the impact of AI technologies on business is projected to increase labour productivity by up to 40% and enable people to make more efficient use of their time.
In the recruitment sector, examples include online assistants that automatically process candidate inquiries, providing them with immediate responses.
As they learn from their constant interactions, these assistants become more ‘intelligent’ and efficient. Cazar leverages Azure Analysis, Power BI and other Microsoft tools for business intelligence to help Sniperhire users get answers quickly by analysing vast quantities of data instantly.
