It's Time To #LearnLikeAnInsider

What does it mean to learn like an insider?

Imagine a time in the foretelling future when modern-day museums display libraries, bookstores, and classrooms. Future generations line up in groups and pay the entrance fee for a chance to explore these archaic displays. Teenagers are caught quietly giggling about how people gathered in such places in the "olden days" to learn from outdated, overused textbooks.

Monuments around the ancient learning centers explain the pre-insider times, when reading and learning were based on waiting months—even years!—for textbooks to get published on a certain topic, only to find the books outdated and useless once they arrived. During a time of great innovation and technological advancements, this format just was not working for the people of the pre-insider era.

Something had to change

The team that publishes SAPinsider saw a problem with the way corporate learning in the SAP market was being approached. They developed a solution that enabled learners to hone their skills without wasting valuable time, resources, and hard-earned cash on a centuries-old learning model. The vision: to learn wherever you can, whenever you can. With a cloud-hosted platform filled with articles, videos, images, and eBooks, up-to-date content is accessible through any device when it’s convenient for you.

Welcome to the insider-era of learning

Delve into chapters explaining SAP solution updates on your tablet while on the train to your next meeting; discover how to close you next project faster while on your smartphone, waiting to meet a friend for dinner; quickly recap best practices, tips, and tricks on your laptop before starting a big presentation.

Insiders learn in the cloud, on any accessible device, and, most importantly, when it’s convenient.
