Plan For and Implement SAP Learning Solution

SAP Learning Solution (LSO) builds on the mySAP ERP Training Management module and mySAP ERP HCM implementation to offer additional learning management system functionality such as new delivery methods, online learning, curriculum management, content design, and version management. Uncover the key LSO components and discover undocumented tips about how to prepare for a successful implementation.

Key Concept

SAP has provided a learning management system for more than 15 years, beginning with a solution called Training and Event Management (now called Training Management [TEM], sometimes referred to as PE in SAP documentation). This system allowed learners to book courses and view their training history via Employee Self-Service, and supported the full suite of classroom training administration functions.

SAP’s current learning software is SAP’s Learning Solution (LSO). Companies still can use TEM to administer classroom-only training or they can choose to leverage LSO functionality to deliver classroom training as well as Web-based training, virtual classrooms, blended learning, and collaboration to their employees.

mySAP ERP Training Management (TEM) serves as the foundation of SAP’s Learning Solution (LSO). However, LSO includes much new functionality such as administering and delivering Web-based training, virtual classrooms, curricula, and online tests. The entire LSO consists of SAP Authoring Environment, Content Management System (CMS), Learning Management System (LMS), Learning Portal, Content Player, Offline Player, Business Intelligence (BI), and the Collaboration functionality (Figure 1).

In the first part of this series, we’ll describe the LSO functionality and then we’ll dive into the details and discuss system landscape and architecture as well as implementation best practices, tips, and tricks that you can’t find elsewhere. We’ll focus on the back-end mySAP ERP functionality. In later parts of this series, we’ll describe system and master data configuration and training. We’ll also elaborate on the authoring functions.
