With GDPR taking effect at the end of this month, organisations need to make sure that their LMS supports GDPR compliance. GDPR affects every organisation that operates within the EU, whether they are based inside the EU or not, meaning that this affects many global organisations. The risks involved if you fail to comply with GDPR can be catastrophic for many businesses, ranging from significant financial fines to serious reputational damage associated with not protecting users’ personal data, making it essential that you’re prepared before the deadline on 25th May 2018.
L&D teams everywhere know that a key priority for learning professionals today is to do more for less. All stakeholders want to know that their investment is paying off, whether that's through cost savings, increased efficiency or increased productivity and output. Too many organisations fail to collect this information and then struggle to prove the value of their learning management system to their key stakeholders, which can make it difficult to secure extra budget further down the line.
At Totara, we strongly believe in giving our subscribers the freedom to create a learning platform that meets their needs without compromise. Unfortunately, with proprietary systems, you have no say over the roadmap, you often can’t customise the platform to your own specifications and you will probably end up working around the limitations of the LMS instead of the LMS working around you.
