CUSTOMER SUCCESS STORY
HR DATALAKE A&B STYLE
With more than 300,000 employees, the customer is one of the largest transport companies in Germany.
The customer’s goal was the AWS-based implementation of a data lake for HR and people analytics based on several internal people management systems and external (public) data. HR reporting and controlling processes are being digitalized to provide broder and faster results.
As one of the biggest companies in mobility and logistics as well as their connection to the german government, the customer has strong demands regarding data privacy and workers cooperation. Boards and strict internal guidelines required a close guidance and detailed planning. Technical and organizational measures have been defined and implemented in the customers case. All requirements have to be met all time for operating permission.
To satisfy these strict boundaries while still being able to gain meaningful data insights for the customer, the solution is heavily built around AWS’ infrastructure, services and automation tools.
The requirements have been translated into security measures based on extensive audit logging (CloudWatch, CloudTrail and application logs are sent to a logging service based on OpenSearch and Kibana), account and zone separation, strict security groups and an fully automated CI/CD pipeline.
Working with the most sensitive data has been restricted to specially configured remote clients. Thanks to the move to a cloud environment data engineers are able to do meaningful work in those secured environments from anywhere around the world.
Without the consequent enforcement of the technical and organizational guidelines, enabled by AWS’ services, they have never been realized due to security and privacy concerns.
