Training organizations require a robust and reliable information technology platform to efficiently manage and deliver its courses and training programs, while ensuring adequate levels of data security and integrity.
Handling these issues requires skilled resources and specialized tools which were affordable for medium to large organizations but cost-prohibitive for small players, leaving the latter at a disadvantage in today’s competitive market.
Increased compliance and reporting requirements from government institutions impact even more small organizations, since the cost associated with the overhead required to handle those activities represent a higher proportion to total cost when compared to medium to large businesses.
Recent trends in technologies such as cloud computing and shared services have made accessible for small organizations powerful and advanced tools, essentially by eliminating the need for an up-front investment in infrastructure, where the company pays for the used resources as a variable cost. The efficient selection and use of these resources still requires skilled resources with both knowledge of technology and know-how of the training organizations processes.
It would be hard to achieve a profitable business case for an internal IT organization with all the required skills even for a medium size organization. This usually results in a less than optimal scenario with lower efficiency and increased risks. The viable option then is to have access to those skills just as needed, in a reliable and flexible manner.
