Success Stories

Cloud solution for nationwide government recruitment exam

Successfully facilitated the conduct of Government of India’s SSC CGL Exams in 2016 – one of world’s largest recruitment examinations for graduates in the computer-based mode

The Organization

The Staff Selection Commission within the Government of India recruits staff for various posts in the ministries and departments of the government and in subordinate offices.

The commission is an attached office of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT). Every year the commission conducts several recruitment exams in which more than 12 million candidates appear across the country. Amongst all the exams that are conducted by the commission, the Combined Graduate Level Examination (CGLE) is the most frequently required exam, taken by approximately 38 lakh candidates in 2016.

The Challenge

The commission wanted to migrate from traditional paper and pencil mode to computer-based testing (CBT) mode. The sheer volume of candidates made exam management extremely difficult and a more up-to-date solution was sought.
