Case Study: DROPBOX | SOFTWARE As Dropbox matured and built out its human resources technology landscape, the company committed to deploying cloud-based applications. Its HR systems needed to meet core business requirements while upholding the company's industry-leading user experience standards. After a market analysis and assessment of current engagements at Dropbox, the company turned to Dell Boomi and Deloitte Consulting LLP. The two helped Dropbox quickly sort through its integration challenges and rapidly transform the workflows across its HR landscape. With rapidly evolving companies like Dropbox, what worked yesterday is not necessarily what will work tomorrow. Human resources systems and processes are no exception. With this in mind, Boomi and Deloitte created a highly scalable and flexible integration architecture to support Dropbox's continued growth, starting with point-to-point integrations between Workday (the company's primary human resources system) and various applications ranging from equity tracking to sales compensation. With these integrations in place, Dropbox required greater automation to streamline key processes. For example, Dropbox employees were commonly using spreadsheets to manually upload and download talent management data from enterprise applications or employee-managed databases.
