At a time when technologies are investing massively in training, CrossKnowledge is moving over to collaborative Microsoft Cloud solutions to make its e-learning offers easier to deploy, access and use.
CrossKnowledge is moving over to the power of the Cloud with Windows Azure
CrossKnowledge’s 20,000 teaching resources will henceforth be available via Microsoft’s Windows Azure Cloud platform. Chosen for its performances and its high level of security, the Windows Azure infrastructure allows international companies using CrossKnowledge solutions to enjoy high levels of availability and immediate access to resources, wherever in the world the user is located. The user experience will therefore be to the highest of internet standards.
CrossKnowledge solutions directly accessible from Microsoft’s SharePoint platform
Widely used by CrossKnowledge’s major accounts, SharePoint now benefits from high levels of integration with CrossKnowledge’s technology solutions. This integration is the first of its kind between SharePoint and a distance learning platform. It allows the user in a company direct access from Sharepoint to their training courses, their selected learning content and community areas created in CrossKnowledge, without the need to change environment. Via the collaborative power of SharePoint, the user can also interact with communities that share the same learning needs.
Progress and the time spent on each learning content are saved on the CrossKnowledge platform.
“We welcome this collaboration with CrossKnowledge” says Jean Ferré, director of the Developers, Platform and Ecosystem division at Microsoft France. “At Microsoft, we are keen to develop an environment and platforms that help our partners to innovate and thus increase their business opportunities.“
“We have a major convergence of vision with Microsoft on the development of distance learning. Our customers understand that the future belongs to open, complementary solutions that integrate the best of the various environments, rather than a single ’one size fits all’ approach that frequently fails to deliver“, says Steve Fiehl, Chief Innovation Officer and co-founder of CrossKnowledge. “This explains our technology partnership with Microsoft.“
