Analytics now included in Xyleme’s cloud based delivery solution Bravais
Boulder, CO; October 31, 2012 – Xyleme’s update to Bravais 1.2 provides the ability to track and report on all the content published to and from the BravaisTM cloud platform, no matter the device from which the content is being accessed. For training organizations, this capability means that executives are now able to measure effectiveness per individual piece of content, such as lessons, video clips, specific topics, and interactions. With this update, more than just the record of the download and completion of an entire course is tracked.
With Bravais 1.2, the granularity of the content provides an opportunity to evaluate exactly which pieces of content are most effective and which devices are used most at moment of need, allowing for a continuous cycle of improving content. With Xyleme, all renditions of content (print, html, etc.) are connected to the single-source of XML content, so you can track overall content performance, again, regardless of the device that is accessing the content. This brings a whole new dimension to learning content analytics.
The tracking in Bravais 1.2 identifies: how users are accessing content, distinguishes which pieces are most popular, and identifies how the content is performing. And, because Xyleme follows an Agile Development process, analytics will soon be enhanced with new information such as social comments and ratings on a continuous basis.

"As an industry, Learning & Development has struggled to determine what's working and what's not when it comes to the training and performance support materials they supply to their employees, customers and partners," commented Stacey Harris, VP, Research and Advisory Services at Brandon Hall Group. "The promise of big data for learning is huge: training organizations can determine the correlation between the content they develop and the performance of their leaners, and take immediate and meaningful action to improve the information they deliver to their organizations and clients. With Bravais, we see Xyleme emerging as one of the clear innovators in this space."
In case you haven’t met Bravais before this release, Bravais is Xyleme’s cloud-based solution to deliver personalized learning to any device.

- Batch Content Uploads: The ability to upload and classify multiple learning assets at one time.
