The project is for a client who is a popular global design organization located in the USA, with branches all over the globe. They have a team of designers, engineers, teachers, and researchers who look at creating change through design, by building learning platforms and tools to unlock creativity.

Looking at the challenges faced by the client, SPEC INDIA defined four teams.
The project was to replace third-party applications (from different vendors & for different purposes) with one enterprise application (Workday). The client was using different SaaS-based applications for HR, Finance, Project & CRM modules which was bit costly and required more support efforts and cost.
We got legacy data from Power BI models for data migration activities, migrated to Databricks for faster processing of data, Python & PySpark technologies for data extraction and processing, Workday Studio for integrations and Power BI for reporting. We approached Azure as a cloud platform.
