This is my second post in a series of posts where I want to recommend sessions to go to and people to meet at HR Insider 2013 in Amsterdam. Rather than write a generic guide, i decided to write multiple posts for audiences with different purposes. What is more valuable than getting the facts is getting to meet the people who create, market and influence the products you see. Meet them and follow them on Twitter. Many of them share information about their products on Twitter.
You are an SAP Learning Solution or SAP Enterprise Learning customer wondering about moving learning management to the cloud by migrating to SuccessFactors Learning. You have heard that SuccessFactors Learning is the go-forward solution for learning management. You are curious about SuccessFactors learning and want to understand how it is different from your beloved Learning Solution (LSO) and how you can migrate to it. You want to meet the experts who know both products well and who can advise on how and when to move learning management to the cloud. You are also wondering how you can bring learning qualifications back to SAP Employee profile when learning management moves to the cloud. You are also wondering if you can get an independent opinion from an expert who does not work at SAP and SuccessFactors.

When you consider moving to cloud based learning management, there are two things that I recommend you pay attention to. Social Learning and Mobililty.

I will participate in two Ask-The-Expert sessions where we can talk about SAP Jam and SAP SuccessFactors integration. I will be glad to listen to your current landscape and share the experiences I gained by working with other customers like you.
