Comprehensive training portfolio helps customers get up to speed on Lawson’s solutions quickly, helps reduce down time and increase return on investment
 
 
ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Lawson Software (Nasdaq:LWSN - News) today announced that independent industry analyst firm International Data Corporation (IDC) positioned Lawson as a "leader" in IT training vendor ratings in its January 2011 report1, "IDC MarketScape: Worldwide IT Education and Training 2011 Vendor Analysis," by Cushing Anderson, program vice president, Project-Based Services for IDC.

The report states: “Lawson has built a variety of learning modalities to meet the needs of its global audience. This includes Learning Labs (both in person and virtual) for project team members and Learning Accelerator, a Web simulation authoring tool that helps new learners experience tasks or provides step-by-step user guides for completing tasks. A library of content is also available for the Learning Accelerator.”

Lawson has made a complimentary copy of the excerpt available for download at www.lawson.com/learning.

The IDC MarketScape report evaluated 11 vendors participating in the IT education market as a line of business to support the sale of their technologies. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters that assess vendors relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in a given market during the short and long term.

"Training plays a crucial role in the technology life cycle, and Lawson provides a variety of innovative training solutions to help our customers maximize their return on their enterprise software investment,” said Alan Hupp, vice president, Lawson Learning. "Our positioning in this report reflects our commitment to helping our customers build the Lawson know-how needed to achieve their business goals."

As noted in the report, Lawson has aligned its learning strategies with all phases of the application life cycle. The company’s learning strategy is designed to help reduce the total cost of ownership for Lawson customers.
