FT Knowledge, Indeliq, and Accenture form alliance


FT Knowledge, Indeliq, and Accenture have formed an alliance to bring together educational content, e-learning products, and corporate learning services.

As part of the four-year alliance, FT Knowledge and Indeliq will co-develop, co-brand, and co-market over 200 hours of simulation-based e-learning courses, initially focusing on the critical skills of newly promoted managers including coaching, financial analysis, change management, and building high performance teams. Indeliq's performance simulation technology enables managers and employees to "learn by doing" through a Web-based environment that simulates real business situations and drives improved business results. FT Knowledge supplies content and learning expertise and will also draw on the wealth of intellectual property in Pearson Education, the world's leading education company.

Also, through the alliance, FT Knowledge becomes Accenture's preferred provider of business skills learning services and content, delivered either in the classroom, over the Internet, or through a blended approach. The companies have agreed to co-market and co-brand select corporate educational services.

"Businesses need effective training solutions tied to business results," said Cushing Anderson, program manager for IDC's Learning Services Research. "The combination of high quality content, engaging delivery methodology and a strong link to business results make this a powerful offering."

Pippa Wicks, chief executive of FT Knowledge, said, "This is a perfect partnership: the world's leading education company, teaming up with the best simulation technology and the world's leading business services company. It will open up opportunities for all Pearson companies to bring services and content into the corporate education market."

Daniel Hamburger, chief executive officer of Indeliq, said the alliance provides unique benefits in corporate learning. "The alliance is a means to deliver real business return on investment, beyond just cost savings through computer-based training, by taking the best training methodology¾ simulation¾ and combining it with the best educational content," he said.

Accenture will serve as a channel partner, providing an effective means for the alliance companies to jointly deliver the highest quality learning products and services. Accenture clients span the full range of industries around the world, comprising 88 of the Fortune Global 100 and more than half of the Fortune Global 500.

Harry Brakeley, managing partner of Accenture Learning, believes that the combined strengths of the alliance will enable it to develop and deliver the highest quality e-learning products and corporate education services on a global basis.

"The individual competencies of the alliance companies, when brought together in a single focus, creates an enormously powerful capability," Brakeley said. "This combination supports Accenture Learning's mission to improve its clients' workforce performance by delivering outsourced transformational learning services."
