Sam Adkins’ latest report, The Gravity of the Situation: The Assimilation of eLearning by Enterprise Applications, is now available for download.
The second report highlights the vision of the large global enterprise software vendors like SAP, IBM, Oracle, PeopleSoft, Siebel and Sun. They have all added eLearning functionality to their eBusiness product suites in the last year.
The dominant theme in their marketing positioning and product strategy is the clear message to customers that integrated business applications suites are superior to point solutions. Those integrated suites contain not only eLearning but also business process management, business intelligence, content management and, increasingly, live collaboration.
