Only one-quarter of HR professionals agree that their learning technologies are well integrated with one another. Also, about the same small proportion say their learning platform is integrated with their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
Regardless of this dissatisfaction and lack of integration, a majority believe that the learners are experiencing positive outcomes (69%). However few report they have good metrics and analytics in the learner experience (13%), engagement (10%), and success (14%) that can verify such outcomes.
