In the Speexx Exchange 2015-16 Survey, we spoke to 220+ HR and L&D professionals who told us what’s happening in their organisations right now with regard to e-learning, business communication, mobile learning, talent management systems, and Big Data. Things are clearly moving ahead, with more and more managers reaching their goals, yet a number of barriers still need to be overcome for them to really thrive.
The global mobile learning market is forecast to hit $8.7 billion by the end of 2015 and looks set to reach $12.2 billion by 2017. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives are becoming standard practice for many organisations and learners who are used to accessing corporate systems and data from their own mobile devices are driving demand for mobile learning. Meanwhile, EUdigitisation initiatives, such as the Opening up Education programme funded with tens of millions of Euros, are also driving the adoption of mobile learning.
We've just published the final edition of our 3 part video guide to help HR and L&D professionals deal with developing a global workforce. ‘How to drive corporate training with big learner data’ gives an insight into how learner analytics benefit organisations in their training programmes and decision-making processes. It also lists practical tips on applying the right metrics and predicting learner behaviour in the future.
Speexx was founded in Germany, a country with one the of the strictest data protection regulation policies I know of, at least. We’re now based all over the world and the one of the greatest challenges we see is that HR teams from regions with lower data protection standards don’t yet understand the regulations from countries with more rigid laws. This is a major issue when it comes to big data.
Whether it's a private cloud or a public one, and even if you don't know what or where that cloud is, chances are, you're probably already using it. Cloud computing is a general term referring to any kind of service hosted over the internet. More specifically, cloud services refer to hosted services which are located in big blocks of servers in one or many places around the globe and are accessed over the internet.
