The aim of the meeting was to exchange and share views about topics such as „How will we learn in the future?“, „How will demands on learning change in terms of consumerization of IT?“ and „How will globalization affect customer claims to the development and the provision of learning contents?”

Well-fitting the topic, the meeting took place at “Training Center of the Future” of the campus GmbH in Berlin, which the IT training provider and Microsoft Learning eXperiences team conceptualized beforehand and then opened it in April 2013 in close collaboration.

The US-American Corporation, which is currently reshaping their learning business to strategically align with the future market needs, will increasingly rely on global and diverse partners. Alison Cunard was impressed with the strength and diversity of the campus, to focus on advancing their internationalization: „For more than 20 years, the campus has been a forward-looking training partner, keeping up with the market needs. In areas of learning formations and innovation of learning delivery and content, the campus is an excellent example of a strong and strategic partner.”

Frank Mies, General Manager at the campus, stated that he was very happy with the meeting, saying: „Thanks to the excellent cooperation with Microsoft in the past years we have been able to bring many innovations to the German IT training market and establish them successfully. Learning itself is currently on a comprehensive change and we are very happy to analyze, develop and implement the concomitant changes in our industry together with Microsoft.“

Siegfried Schmauder, EVP BS T, emphasizes: „Particularly in this important time of structural change of learning, it makes us proud, that we can count on the close collaboration with Microsoft. It also gives us the certainty that we are extremely well positioned for the further expansion of our market position – also internationally.“

A continuing meeting will take place at the Microsoft corporate headquarters in the US state of Washington.
