A Leading EdTech Company Modernizes their Assessment Solution to Evaluate the Performance of Potential Candidates
The new in-house platform defines and delivers products to predict performance and assess a candidate’s suitability for a given position and level.
The client is a global leader in assessments that help predict performance and assess the suitability of a candidate or employee at any level or position in a company. They offer reliable assessment solutions, delivering complete information about candidates/employees and their potential performance.
The client was entirely dependent on a third party to deliver their products to customers. However, their vendor had bandwidth issues and could not serve their API customers on time, where the client had the most growth opportunities. Also, the vendor did not have the flexibility and agility to accommodate any changes quickly. Due to these challenges, the client was losing control.
Ness built an API bridge to handle internal access and usage of products and services. We designed and created an in-house platform to define and deliver products to predict performance and assess a candidate’s suitability for a given position and level. A new recommendation module helped increase the customer base with highly customized assessments. We leveraged Serverless architecture in AWS, using pay-per-use services that scaled seamlessly without having to manage the infrastructure. AWS cloud distribution, access, and authorization services ensured scalability and security. Also, unified API integration led to common API standards/definitions to remove dependencies for external customers.
The improved infrastructure enabled an independent microservices strategy to quickly add, replace, or change features without impacting other pieces of the infrastructure. The low AWS prices and the third-party elimination led to a whopping 85% drop in AWS infrastructure spending. The solution also enabled improved flexibility, leading to faster time to market and increased revenue through customized solution offerings.
