Barriers to Digital Transformation

For many businesses, digital transformation has become a top priority. However, many still need to define a strategy to equip their employees with the right digital skills to become successful on this journey.

A key finding from research by Technical University of Munich (TUM), published in June, TUM’s study Skills for Digital Transformation reveals that awareness of the importance of digital skills is greater than ever. However, targeted skill development is still rather the exception. In fact, digital talent is threatening to become the major bottleneck of digitization in the industry.

Impacts of Social Learning

On SAP Learning Hub, SAP Learning Rooms include more than 130,000 active room members. Recently, we conducted a study to evaluate the short- and long-term effects of social learning on learning consumption and learning success.

Study design and methodology: In April 2017, we identified learners who were actively participating in SAP Learning Rooms on a regular basis and contributed to the overall learning community with comments, blog posts and discussions. At the same time, we also identified learners, who had access to SAP Learning Rooms but haven’t been active.

Results: Two month later, we compared both groups in terms of completed e-learning courses and self-tests. Not surprisingly, there were huge differences in April: Learners who were active in SAP Learning Rooms consumed nearly three time more e-learning courses and passed more self-tests.
