Skillsoft, a global leader in corporate learning, announced a partnership with Wintellect, a renowned software training and application development company founded by a team of Microsoft technology experts. The partnership augments Skillsoft’s Technology and Developer portfolio of 23,000 multi-modal learning resources by allowing customers to license and deliver the WintellectNOW on-demand developer training solution on Percipio, Skillsoft’s award-winning learning experience platform.

While learners will be able to deepen their knowledge with WintellectNOW courses through a modern learning environment, program administrators will have access to all learning data from Percipio, enabling them to view learner activity across content providers. This seamless, centralized reporting will streamline administrators’ ability to conduct audits, manage training records and measure the value of learning across their organization.

“As new technologies and programming methodologies are developed at a breakneck pace, it is critical for technology professionals to continually learn and gain proficiency in the latest advances,” said Jeff Prosise, co-founder and chief learning officer, Wintellect. “By partnering with Skillsoft, we are gaining access to a massive new population of enterprise technologists and developers, giving them the option to deepen their areas of technical expertise by using WintellectNOW on the same intelligent learning platform as their Skillsoft Technology and Developer content.”

At Skillsoft’s Perspectives conference in April, Jeff Prosise will present a session entitled “Skilling Up for the AI Revolution” featuring an introduction to machine learning and AI, and helping C-level executives and training managers decide where the value is, how to position their companies to take advantage of it and where to focus their training resources. “AI isn’t just a tool for data scientists,” Jeff explained. “It provides software developers with an opportunity to build intelligent apps that help companies operate smarter and more efficiently. And it is an area of emphasis at WintellectNOW.”
