Aragon Research Positions Skillsoft as a Leader in the Globe for Corporate Learning, 2019
Skillsoft earns fourth consecutive Leader ranking based on completeness of strategy and performance
BOSTON – August 27, 2019 – Skillsoft, a global leader in corporate learning, today announced that it has been positioned a Leader by Aragon Research, Inc. in Globe™ for Corporate Learning, 2019  for the fourth consecutive year.
Aragon Research, a technology-focused research and advisory firm committed to providing thought-leading, strategic research and trusted advisory services, recently released the eighth annual Aragon Research Globe for Corporate Learning. The Globe evaluates 19 technology and service providers that allow enterprises to manage and deliver all forms of learning. Learning continues to be a growing focus in the enterprise and the biggest challenge for managers and L&D is to power just-in-time learning experiences for users. Part of this is fueled by the growing C-Suite reality that a skilled workforce is critical to growth and that employee engagement is enhanced by a continuous learning experience.
Skillsoft has continued to expand its state-of-the-art content delivery and intelligent learning experience platform, Percipio. The report highlighted that “Percipio was the first to add a learning assistant that enables just-in-time learning via its Embedded Learning Synchronized Assistant (ELSA) while the platform also offers an intuitive and personalized experience with AI-driven recommendations based on user interest and online behaviors.” Additional Percipio updates support the hosting of custom content (AICC, SCORM, etc.) and can aggregate content from a variety of free and paid sources.
The report also states that Skillsoft “has continued to expand and enhance what is one of the largest off-the-shelf content libraries and demand for learning content continues to grow.”
Skillsoft has been focused on numerous recent enhancements, including transforming its content to deliver video-based instruction via micro-learning through a scenario-based learning methodology to maximize retention as scientifically validated through neuroscience research. It has also expanded its massive off-the-shelf content libraries and added full Technology & Developer, Compliance, Leadership Development and Digital Transformation content solutions to the Percipio platform, which now supports multiple languages. Newly launched Skillsoft Aspire learning journeys for technology and developer professionals also provide critical job skills and role-based training.
“In 2019, the learning experience and delivery of learning have become increasingly strategic as organizations demand a more engaging and consistent way to deliver knowledge on a regular basis,” said Jim Lundy, founder and CEO, Aragon Research. “Skillsoft has successfully built a modern, intuitive learning experience and content to engage the corporate learner, provide critical learning in the flow of work and accelerate skill development.”
“Enhancements to Skillsoft’s content design and Percipio’s open learning experience platform, which support Skillsoft’s learning content, custom content and content from free and other paid sources, are directly aligned with the demand that exists for an integrated, modern learning ecosystem fitted to the needs of today’s digitally-savvy learner,” said Mark Onisk, chief content officer, Skillsoft. “We believe our continued positioning as a Leader in the Aragon Research Globe for Corporate Learning validates our ability to meet the needs of customers and learners in the market today and acknowledges the innovation we continue to deliver to the market.”
