Area9 has entered into a multi-year agreement with Hitachi Data Systems (HDS), for broad implementation of adaptive technology.

Through HDS Academy, based in Santa Clara California, HDS will deploy adaptive technology to create an adaptive learning environment for HDS employees, reseller partners, customers worldwide. Subjects will cover sales, product, and technical knowledge and will allow HDS end-users to learn and refresh learning in the most efficient and effective way, by taking advantage of the highly advanced adaptive technology engine. “A highly skilled workforce is a true differentiator,” said Nick Howe, Vice President of HDS Academy. “By using adaptive technology we believe we can significantly reduce the time our employees, partners and customers spend in training, increase their productivity and at the same time give them a truly personalized, engaging experience.”
