The City of Irving implemented the InformaOne e-Learning platform as a hosted solution,
to provide training to all 2,000 of the City's employees. Irving required the system
to control, manage and streamline the training and certification process.
One of the main challenges was the importation of legacy data, in this case going
back over 15 years. The legacy data was stored in a number of sources including
Excel spreadsheets, Access databases and an existing SQL database. Student records,
classes, transcripts and certifications were mapped to the new schema using the
InformaImport tool – available as part of the InformaOne solution.
Irving uses a blended learning approach which offers students the benefits of the
face-to-face classroom training experience as well as the flexibility and convenience
of online courses.
Irving has been using the system for just over 5 years and has created over 100
online courses and delivered over 100,000 online learning events. Importantly, Irving
has delivered significant cost savings by migrating many of the training activities
to the InformaOne platform.
