In 2018, the global training market spent $366.2B with annual growth of 1.2%. That’s about how much investment is put on corporate learning.
Barely a month ago, SAP launched the new integrated option for the Build engagement model in the SAP PartnerEdge program, expanding the customers’ choices in optimizing their end-to-end business processes.
Fast-forward to June 12, SAP PartnerEdge offers another systems integration development, this time to expand the learning capabilities of SAP SuccessFactors customers, by partnering with OpenSesame.
According to Tom Turnbull, Vice President, Partnerships of OpenSesame, OpenSesame e-learning courses allows the SAP SuccessFactors customers to quickly launch their training program while leveraging on its existing Open Content Network.
“Expanding our partnership with SAP by joining the PartnerEdge program will strengthen our ability to expand the learning ecosystem for our mutual SuccessFactors LMS customers,” said Turnbull.
OpenSesame, being in the Open Content Network of SuccessFactors, has already seamlessly integrated its e-learning courses in the SAP SuccessFactors LMS. For the clientele, this is a move to accelerate innovation intrinsically while developing and transforming the workforce worthy of recognition in any industry.
Recently, with the accessibility to cloud software for professional development and learning, building a competitive workforce is a necessity. The need to fill skills and close leadership gaps in an organization is looming and in the digital world, time is always fleeting.
