One of the world's largest HR firms is using Cloudera Enterprise to match job seekers with openings and build new services for its clients
The client is one of the world's largest HR service providers, operating in around 40 countries. It faced a challenge around the sheer volume of information that is increasingly becoming available in job markets today. Sources include everything from job boards, institutions, LinkedIn, and other social media to videos, company reports, and updates. Even sources such as weather forecasts can be relevant in relation to seasonal and tourism job opportunities.
The HR service provider wanted to develop a platform to consolidate all available jobs in a particular geography. They asked Capgemini to demonstrate the potential of the Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub to deliver a Big Data solution that would help gain faster access to higher quality information.
The initial objective was to find ways to tackle volumes of information for its own business, with the secondary aim of developing entirely new HR services for institution and companies. This would include becoming far more proactive in job markets, anticipating requirements and opportunities, and acting to fulfill recruitment requirements.
