When we count the most exemplary self-made people of the present era with stories of humblest beginnings to great success, the name of Tom Gores indubitably comes up. Born in Israel in a family of six children, Tom began his career working at his uncle’s grocery store when he was just a teenager. Despite facing numerous challenges, Tom’s passion for entrepreneurship and desire to make a difference in the world helped him overcome these difficulties. In 1995, he founded Platinum Equity, a private equity firm that embodies the lessons of hard work, perseverance, and identification of undervalued assets that Tom learned throughout his life. Today, Platinum Equity is a prominent global investment firm with approximately $36 billion worth of assets under management.

Consequently, manually synchronizing employee data, updating the Global Address List (GAL) and security groups, and managing accounts and access privileges became time-consuming and cumbersome tasks. To address these challenges, Platinum Equity’s Sysadmin recognized the need for a better way of accomplishing the entire operation iteratively without risking compliance and accuracy.
The Sysadmin looked up over the internet and consulted on a variety of forums if there was a way to automate onboarding process of new hires, processing role updates, and facilitating terminations efficiently and effectively across HR and IT systems. That was when it found Hire2Retire, a leading PIP or Prepackaged Integration Product, by RoboMQ, a leading API and data integration company. With Hire2Retire, the Sysadmin could not only automate all the HR-IT operations, as mentioned earlier but also achieve–
