"We are trying to solve infrastructure issues surrounding energy and healthcare globally. Keeping up with those challenges requires a strong learning organization that knows how to deliver for its employees and its customers." Some of the challenges Siemens Corporation was facing with its previous elearning initiatives were managing the multiple vendors required to offer the range of courses the company wanted to provide, the varying quality of the courses themselves, and a lack of service from the elearning course providers. "In addition, we had to really be very involved with the integration of each vendor into our learning management system (LMS), Saba, which took a great deal of internal resources," adds Moerck.
