AVEVA has strategically partnered with Axonify, a B2B SaaS company and a player in the microlearning space, to offer adaptive AI- microlearning powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) as part of AVEVA Unified Learning.

This strategic partnership with Axonify makes AVEVA the first leading digitalisationn company to deliver microlearning solutions for industrial operations staff. This is part of an overarching framework designed to help companies build competence, improve worker performance and drive behavioural change. The training programme drives measurable outcomes for organisationnal competency needs, all enabled by three key aspects:

  • A single integrated platform from one vendor encompassing simulation for training with rich extended reality capabilities, and tools for designing learning and development programmes
  • Flexible deployment enabling customers to choose cloud, hybrid, or on-premises implementation.
  • Harnessing of AI to fill knowledge gaps with personalised training.

AVEVA designs, develops and implements experiential learning with specific expertise in simulation, virtual and augmented reality, and blended enterprise learning with knowledge rooted in operations experience. Axonify prides itself on being a modern learning solution for frontline employees that actually works. The learning experience is fun, fast, personalised and designed to make critical information stick. And employees love it—83 percent of users log in 2-3 times a week, which translates into meaningful behaviour change that drives the business results.

Through industry analysis and at the ARC Industry Forum in February 2020, AVEVA conducted research with clients, competitors and analysts.  This research further highlighted that its partnership with Axonify is in fact novel, and a key differentiator for AVEVA Unified Learning in industrial operations and manufacturing space, enabling digital transformation and organisationnal change by improving retention by 90 percent, engagement by 80 percent, while measuring the business impact of training compared against KPI’s.

In education, AI enables trainers to monitor learners as they complete lessons, while simultaneously offering course corrections and suggestions to them when needed. This actively engages them during the learning experience. Real-time learning analytics adapt to the specific learner’s needs creating a customised training experience. Personalisationn makes the training efficient and relevant—both a magnet for existing learners and a great tool for attracting new ones.

“We are excited to have entered into this strategic partnership with Axonify, as together we can truly transform the way that global organisationns approach the learning lifecycle of their employees,” said Amish Sabharwal, Global Head of Engineering, AVEVA. “Microlearning shifts training away from ‘one size fits all’ classes to daily, easily digestible question-based sessions that can be tailored to meet individual needs based on cognitive science principles. Our research shows that without reinforcement, people typically forget up to 90 percent of content learned during training within 30 days. AI-enabled microlearning will protect the training investment and ensure that recipients instinctively know all the crucial information when they most need it.”

“We are delighted to be partnering with AVEVA at a time when industrial organisationns are starting to increasingly take up digital transformation,” said Christine Tutssel, SVP of Global Sales and Co-Founder, Axonify. “Employee knowledge is a foundational element of an organisationn’s digital transformation strategy and the Axonify platform is proven to drive learning retention, knowledge growth and most importantly behaviour change in a way that traditional methods can’t. We are also able to support the rapid pace of change that today’s industrial organisationns require as they embark on building out their digital competencies.”

AVEVA Unified Learning combines the latest technologies with sound instructional design to deliver competency-based experiential learning, so that operators perform better in less time. This can be deployed on premise, on the  AVEVA Cloud, or as a hybrid cloud solution for a complete enterprise-wide, multi-site training solution. This partnership delivers microlearning in concert with simulation, XR, and other tools as part of one integrated framework.
