Users of Europe’s leading learning content management system (LCMS) met in London recently to discuss the latest developments and plans for the system and its related suite of products.
This latest in a series of regular User Group conferences, held at venues throughout Europe, began with Fabrizio Giorgini, head of R&D at Italy-based eXact learning solutions, explaining the developments in the eXact learning suite of products over the past year and then outlining eXact learning solutions’ plans for its products over the next year.
The User Group conference included presentations from eXact learning suite clients The British Council; the telecoms company, Telefónica UK; eLfH, which is part of NHS Health Education England, and the Ireland-based learning materials provider, Intuition.
In particular, Rich Brook and Asi DeGani, of Telefonica, outlined a project in which they were given just two and half weeks to produce a major online learning programme. Asi explained, “We knew we had three options: change the launch date; commission the work to be done externally, or handle it in-house.
A new-generation learning management system (LMS) is one of the key products on display at the Learning Technologies event, taking place in London’s Olympia on 3rd and 4th February 2016.
The LMS, from Glasgow-based Create eLearning, is a hybrid platform that caters for coaching, mentoring, online and face-to-face training/ learning. Moreover, users can configure it to deliver learning materials anywhere in the world, in any language and on any delivery device.
“During a 20 year career in the clinical trials industry, I needed to train people around the world in a variety of languages and I had to buy LMSs,” explained Create eLearning’s managing director, Mark Taggart. “From a technological perspective, the whole process was frustrating, painful and costly.
“That had to change,” Mark added, “So I built this company – to provide an LMS that needs no coding, only configuring, and has been designed with the needs of the global organisation in mind.”
Italy-based eXact learning solutions has announced its intention to bring a radical and innovative approach to the online learning technologies industry in 2016.
To illustrate this resolve, the digital learning content management business solutions producer is unveiling an eye-catching, avant garde stand design at this year’s Learning Technologies exhibition. The event, which also includes a conference, is being held in London’s Olympia on 3rd and 4th February 2016, and regularly attracts some 7,500 visitors from around the world.
According to eXact learning solutions’ Managing Director, Valerio Torda, its stand – D6 – at this year’s exhibition demonstrates the company’s innovative, creative spirit and its zeal to revolutionize the industry it serves.
He added, “There are significant signs that the online learning technologies industry is undergoing major change. L&D professionals are increasingly taking on the role of curators rather than custodians of learning, for example.

London/Monaco, 11 January 2016 –Datacloud Europe 2016 which meets this June 7-9 in Monaco, will feature the critical eco system of cloud connectivity, fiber networks and data centers as the utilities to the world’s businesses.
The enterprise driven programme for the international forum and exhibition, now in its 12th year with 60 countries represented, will extensively draw on business users from financial services, transport, auto, media and gaming, pharmaceutical, retail, oil and gas, telco and other key verticals.
The congress will explore how they are responding to the challenges of energy, security, connectivity, interoperability, and using Cloud enablement, continuous delivery and DevOps lifecycles for faster rollout of new features and applications and for sustaining business innovation.
“The content focus is extremely timely with most enterprises shifting at least half of their infrastructure to Cloud-based platforms over the next 24 months,” commented Philip Low managing director of BroadGroup, the event researchers and producers.
The latest in a series of User Group conferences organised by eXact learning solutions takes place at the Ibis London Earl’s Court Hotel on 2nd February. The User Group conference is a preface to the two-day Learning Technologies conference and exhibition, which opens the following day in London’s Olympia - and at which eXact learning solutions will be exhibiting.
With clients from around the world, the Italy-based digital learning content management business solution provider regularly organises User Group conferences - to enable delegates to discover eXact learning solutions’ plans for further develop and expand the eXact suite of products. Moreover, there will be a “user case studies” session, where learning content management system (LCMS) users share their experiences and achievements through using the eXact learning LCMS platform.
Over the years, I have promoted a lot of conferences for marketers, businesses, and content providers. For the most part these conferences blend in together so much that it is difficult to distinguish one from the other. However, not all conferences are forgotten with time. There are an elite few that stand out from the pack year after year. One of those is the Gilbane Conference.
The Gilbane Conference is geared for marketers, IT, and business managers that wish to "integrate content strategies and computing technologies to produce superior customer experiences for all stakeholders".
A couple years ago, Switzerland-based Magnolia set its sights on North America as a way to increase its global growth. To continue the effort, Magnolia has redesigned its annual conference to accommodate growth, support its thriving U.S. presence and increase opportunities for clients, partners and prospective users.
This year, Magnolia will host its conference in Basel, Switzerland, as well as in Silicon Valley for the first time. At the U.S. edition of the conference, Atlassian, Barclays Bank Delaware, VSP Global and others will be sharing their experiences of building highly scalable systems to support their digital business initiatives. On the European side, Virgin Holidays will head up the digital business track. The expansion highlights Magnolia’s steady growth, which includes a strong increase in global license sales and a 30% increase in employees.

At the 2013 CMS Expo Learning & Business Conference I have the privilege of moderating a panel focused on the Cloud. That's actually a broad topic, but I think it's a topic that is increasingly becoming well understood by the CMS community. Last year, I moderated a similar panel and, in my opinion, we spent way too much time trying to define the Cloud. This year, I'm hoping we're past the "what is it" phase and spend much more time talking about real problems, real benefits, and the challenges the content management industry may be facing by moving toward a Cloud solution.
