The Impact of IT Training: Getting to the Finish Line

Oracle Training

It has been said before and it will always ring true: many factors can contribute to the success or failure of an IT project.

A popular misconception tells us that training is a luxury ill-afforded during lean economic times; but can you really afford not to train with technologies changing at a speed resembling that of a NASCAR race?

Another question: What does it take to get ahead of the pace car?

CIOs and IT managers understand that justification for every investment is needed at every turn. IDC research tells us projects that met a majority of their business objectives provided team members with 40% more training than those comparable projects that failed (IDC, 2012).

In fact, that same research tells us in IT security specifically, well-trained teams are 10% more productive (Impact of Training on Project Success, 2011).

Still not convinced?

View the essential IMPACT OF TRAINING infographic, compliments of Oracle University, to find out more about what learning can do.

With more than 500 expert instructors worldwide and more than 2,000 courses available, Oracle University couples best-in-class technology training with digital formats to make learning convenient and efficient.

The checkered flag awaits! Go for it.
