This new cloud-based offering, Captivate Prime, enables specialists in learning and development, training and corporate human resources departments to take charge of the learning environments they manage and boost impact by developing skill-based learning programs.

According to Frost & Sullivan customer surveys, over half of organizations that have already deployed LMS solutions intend to replace their existing systems, as technology and business needs evolve. Additionally, unsatisfied customers are looking to switch vendors rather than upgrade their existing solution.

“We are aware of the challenges that organizations face today in rolling out learning programs and keeping employees engaged,” said Matt Thompson, executive vice president, Worldwide Field Operations at Adobe. “Captivate Prime is designed to make the learning management process intuitive, quick and easy to roll out, so users no longer feel IT dependent. The learner-first approach helps build a culture where employees don’t dodge learning, but embrace it.”
