The e-learning industry is on a collision course with the enterprise application (EA) industry. SAP, Siebel and PeopleSoft now offer integrated learning management system (LMS) modules in their EA suites. IBM has three new Web-services-ready enterprise components: an LMS, a learning content management system (LCMS) and a virtual classroom. This product development has occurred within the last year.
     Web services will allow vendors to sell “bite-sized” components and services via the Web. Non-enterprise companies will finally be able to afford enterprise applications.
     With experience in both the eLearning and software industries, Sam Adkins and Jay Cross are the self-appointed "canaries in the coalmine," advising enterprise customers and vendors alike to prosper in the age of Workflow-Based Learning™.
     Are you responsible for aligning your organization’s business strategy, enterprise applications, and workforce performance? You’ve come to the right place.

Why this matters

by Jay Cross, Founder, Internet Time Group

If the hare and the tortoise were to rerun their famous race, the hare would win. The slack has been knocked out of the system. No one naps. Competition is continuous, and it takes place in real time. Now Web services are forging links between the remaining silos....
