What’s the IBM Learning Program based on SAP Learning Hub about?
To keep its cutting edge in consultancy, IBM GBS has to keep its 22,500 consultants specializing in SAP software products on the cutting edge of SAP technology. Not just today, or tomorrow, but every single hour. With a workforce so diverse, widely dispersed, and busy, how could it keep them where they were most needed – at customer sites – while requiring them to keep pace with the latest technology that only kept advancing? Now with SAP Learning Hub, consultants have anytime, anywhere access to training tools and materials, making learning more convenient and less expensive while helping to ensure every IBM GBS project is a success.
IBM, with the help of SAP Learning Hub, was recognized as one of the best organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results. Some benefits for IBM are for example:
93% Lower average cost per training interaction (as compared to previous year)
13x More training activities successfully completed with no increase in cost
93%Active participation of all subscribers to SAP Learning Hub
"IBM GBS consultants are now maximizing their learning time and minimizing non-value-adding overhead costs and efforts to spend more time with their customers. This means greater value for the customer and for IBM."
