Cazar, developer of Sniperhire, an e-recruitment system used by employers all over the GCC, has migrated its platform to Microsoft Azure.

Cazar will leverage Azure Analysis, Power BI and other Microsoft tools for business intelligence to help Sniperhire users get answers quicker by analysing vast quantities of data instantly.

In the past couple of months, Microsoft and Cazar have collaborated to migrate Sniperhire platform and its customers in more than 50 countries over to Azure. During the process, Cazar utilised PaaS technologies in Azure such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) to offer new services for their customers.

Bruno Delamarre, general manager one commercial partner organisation, Microsoft Middle East and Africa, said Cazar’s HR application will be transformed by the “scalability, flexibility, and security delivered by Azure.”

Guy Rickett, CEO of Cazar, explained, “Today’s employers want flexible, mobile technology that is easy to implement and secure, and that can evolve with their business. That is why we opted for the cloud years ago. 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.”

According to Accenture, the impact of AI technologies on business is projected to increase labour productivity by up to 40 percent 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.
