Skillsoft Receives FedRAMP Authorized Designation for Percipio Learning Platform
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program has awarded Skillsoft Corp. authorization for its Percipio learning platform. The offering is now available on the FedRAMP marketplace as an authorized product.
Apratim Purakayastha, chief technology officer at Skillsoft, said the authorization allows federal agencies to use the platform to address workforce gaps and ensure that organizations will be prepared for future demands. The solution provides skills-based learning paths, a suite of original and partner-authorized content, an extensive course library, over 170 technical certifications and a mix of virtual, on-demand and instructor-led training, Skillsoft said Thursday.
Percipio is designed to help organizations build and measure technical competencies. Skillsoft said entities that migrate to Percipio have experienced a 56 percent average increase in user participation and a 450 percent increase in content access compared to legacy platforms.
One of the customers that plan to migrate to the Percipio platform is the Department of Agriculture. Jerome Davin, distance learning program director at USDA, said transitioning from Skillsoft’s Skillport platform to the newly authorized solution will give the agency access to better training materials and ultimately improve customer experience.
FedRAMP ensures that commercial cloud products are safe for government use. The FedRAMP marketplace contains a list of all authorized cloud offerings.
Skillsoft offers digital learning and workforce transformation products and services. It is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, and has multiple offices in the U.S., Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
