SAP and Skillsoft Provide Customized, Continuous Learning Through a Digital Learning Experience Platform

SAP and Skillsoft recently announced a global reseller agreement where SAP will sell Skillsoft’s learning solutions integrated into SuccessFactors as SAP Content Stream by Skillsoft.

SAP SuccessFactors’ Learning Approach

In today’s digital business environment, continuous learning is a powerful tool that every organization can use to promote talent agility and career development.

Traditional Learning Management Systems (LMSs) provide a system of record for learning, an inventory of learning assets, and context and pathing for learning. However, corporate learning strategies have evolved to deliver high-quality, curated content from outside organizations in ways the employee wishes to consume it. Instead of a top-down approach, learners drive the discovery and consumption of content based on their interests and needs.

SAP SuccessFactors’ learning approach empowers our customers with the best tools and support to meet their objectives and deliver innovative solutions – through both SAP products and partnerships with industry leaders. By partnering with Skillsoft to offer SAP Content Stream by Skillsoft, SAP SuccessFactors Learning customers will benefit from an enhanced, modern, and engaging learner experience as well as simplified content management responsibilities for administrators.
