In a digital ecosystem, enterprises, competitors, customers, regulators and other stakeholders form a mutually beneficial, interdependent business network that shares standardized digital platforms. Gartner, Inc. recently spotlighted The Education Engine and implored global CIOs to learn more about what digital ecosystems are and how they can be used.
Carr Knowledge Interactive Marketing and The Education Engine have partnered to create an ecosystem that generates new sources of revenue based on the disruption of the traditional business learning, development, and compliance model. The traditional model involves renting halls, travel, lodging, time off for learners, payment of trainers, expense accounts and numerous other inefficiencies that create exorbitant cost. The traditional model also yields intangible results (understanding or comprehension) with little accountability.
The new ecosystem supports internal and external educators, presenters, lecturers, and trainers, and it introduces more accountability in the personal development and compliance needs of employees through IT Support, measurement, reporting, and neuroscience. CEO Rich Carr explains: “Business now realizes it’s possible to merge partners, drastically reduce cost and waste, and deliver learning measured with real understanding. Learners can engage content interactively from any device, on any platform. Stakeholders receive real-time measurements of comprehension at the user, facility, geography and global levels for less than the cost of a holiday coffee per user per year. Partners participate with and are measured by others in the ecosystem. The ecosystem creates more opportunities for them.”
