I spoke recently with Tim Pospisil from the Nebraska Public Power District. He’s a member of the team that implemented the first integration of Questionmark Perception with the SAP Learning Solution. Tim shared his experience during a case study presentation at the recent Questionmark Users Conference, and his colleague Darrel Wieberdink will deliver a similar presentation in Orlando on May 18th, during the ASUG Annual Conference for SAP users.
Our case study about NPPD offers details about the integration. And in the podcast I’ve posted here today, Tim talks about NPPD’s rationale for the integration, which has helped to create a one-stop shop for about 2,200 employees working within a highly-regulated environment. He also offers sound advice about the process of integrating enterprise systems. So take a few minutes to listen in!
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and anticipating a peaceful and progressive New Year!
One event we are looking forward to is a Customers Online Web Seminar to be presented at 1 p.m. Tuesday, January 26th, by Timothy Pospisil of the Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD). Timothy will explain how NPPD, the largest utility in the nation’s only all-public-power state, has integrated Questionmark Perception with SAP Learning Solution to streamline assessment and training.
Working within a highly-regulated industry, NPPD requires rigorous training and sound assessment of employees’ knowledge and competencies. The company wanted to achieve all this while providing a “one-stop learning shop” that would put employees in control of scheduling their own training and tracking their own progress. At the same time, NPPD wanted to give supervisors and managers oversight of their direct reports, training plans and progress. The one-stop shop, which makes it possible to manage computer-based training in the same system as final records, also requires robust, secure online exams that utilize a wide variety of question types.
The integration of Perception and SAP has greatly enhanced the training process for employees, particularly Nuclear Plant workers. Participants in this Web seminar will learn how this integration meets the strict requirements of a nuclear training program, understand the synergy between Perception and SAP, and find out what NPPD has learned as the first organization to integrate the two systems.
Prashanth Padmanabhan, Product Manager, SAP Enterprise Learning will provide a brief overview of the SAP/Questionmark integration. Consultants Jason Ichen and Van Vayntrub, who assisted NPPD with the implementation of SAP, will be available on the call to answer questions about the process.
