Press release from: Elearnity

At its recent symposium event, leading organisations including Lloyds Banking Group, BT, Rolls Royce and Shell agreed that the Learning Management System (LMS) remains a priority for corporate learning in 2012.

For many attendees, implementing a new LMS is at the top of the agenda for the year ahead. Whilst managing this key change was important, many also highlighted the need to still maximise the value from existing solutions. Not surprisingly one of the key challenges for the next 12 months was identified as increasing the impact of learning with a reduced budget and/or headcount. The familiar challenges of engaging stakeholders and learners, as well as using a broader range of online solutions, were also still viewed as important.

As well as tackling current needs, organisations also indicated they are looking to the future by starting to plan their next generation learning and talent systems and trying to make more use of social tools. The challenge of better aligning learning and talent was one of the key discussion areas.

Comments David Wilson, Managing Director of Elearnity, ‘What we discovered in our discussions goes against some of the rhetoric around Learning Management Systems. It seems the LMS is still viewed as a solution that is going to help organisations through this challenging period. And now there has been a clear shift in the systems to encompass business areas like employee performance, talent and succession planning as well as learning, their value to organisations appears to be increasing.’

Elearnity has been running corporate roundtable events for over 10 years. The symposium brings together a wide variety of corporate and vendor organisations to focus on current learning and talent themes. In a series of roundtable sessions, attendees worked through key challenges and trends being tackled by learning and talent professionals today. They were also given the opportunity to work with the nine providers present to explore the future of their technologies. The vendors present included Chief Executives and senior representatives from Assima, CERTPOINT, Cornerstone OnDemand, CrossKnowledge, e2train, NetDimensions, Saba, SuccessFactors and Taleo.

Continues Wilson, ‘Our symposium aims to be different to other industry events. Everyone has the opportunity to discuss their own unique challenges, putting trends and technology adoption into the context of their organisation. It’s always fascinating to see what emerges from the event and it’s clear that learning and talent systems still have in an important role to play in supporting corporate organisations. The recent market consolidation and acquisition of learning and talent technologies by major ERP providers only serves to now highlight their importance.’
