Docebo Releases Its eLearning Trends for 2019 Whitepaper
Docebo Learning Platform has released its Top Trends for eLearning in 2019. While these types of vendor-led research reports align their trends to their product, they can provide some insight into the landscape and what features the vendor will be focusing on in the coming year.
The trends identified in the report are:
- Re-Think the Traditional LMS – This trend refers to LMS platforms that offer personalized and automated learning options. It is linked to shifting users from passive training to active learning.
- Social Learning – This trend is heavily linked to Docebo’s Coach & Share offering. It is true that organizations support internal user-generated content along with sharing it via social platforms. Collaboration and social interactions lead to impactful learning which means better results, so the sentiment behind the trend is correct.
- Skills Management – Info-Tech often refers to the fact we are in a VUCA period – a time of high and fast change. This change is felt by organizations in the form of skills gaps as technology and business needs change frequently. It is unrealistic to only recruit for skill gaps; it is a better business practice to use strategic foresight to train your current staff in the hard and soft skills necessary for the business’ success.
- Mobile Learning – Generation Z is coming into the workplace expecting mobile learning experiences and, across generations, people are reaching for their phones to learn. Being able to access learning via mobile is a feature that organizations should have on their LMS roadmap, if they don’t currently offer it.
- Generation Z – As Generation Z sets to make up 20% of the workforce by 2020, this is a talent trend that will affect organizations on all levels. To engage them, they want a clear career path, and a learning and development plan.
- Artificial Intelligence – Many LXP systems use artificial intelligence to offer individualized course selection and create micro-courses from existing content. Artificial intelligence will be a feature to watch, as it will enable personalized learning for every employee based on their interests, career goals, and learning styles.
Some of these trends extend beyond the LMS platform and into talent and technology trends. However, your learning and development programs must support your employees, so talent trends and preferences along with innovations in technology should be considered as you develop training materials.

In today's cybersecurity landscape, managing machine identities and digital certificates across complex, hybrid multi-cloud environments is a growing challenge. As the volume of digital certificates used to secure machines, applications, workloads, services, and devices continues to grow exponentially, organizations often struggle with a lack of visibility and manual processes, resulting in critical service outages and security vulnerabilities.

It combines the best of automation, security, and insights to meet enterprise machine identity and digital trust requirements. AppViewX CERT+ features are purpose-built to address both the operational and security challenges of certificate management to, in turn, help organizations prevent application outages and security breaches. By enabling enterprise-wide crypto-agility, AppViewX CERT+ enhances machine identity trust, eliminates security gaps, promotes compliance, and supports post-quantum cryptography readiness.
In the digital realm, trust is currency. Without robust identity verification, online interactions become a breeding ground for fraud and exploitation.
In the ever-evolving landscape of SaaS Security, one company has quietly forged its path, becoming a beacon of protection for large enterprises grappling with the growing complexity of SaaS applications.

We should start by defining what a secret is. It’s really any piece of confidential information used to authenticate access to sensitive resources. This includes passwords, API keys, encryption keys, SSH keys, and other digital credentials. Many of the organizations I talk to have an application security program with some OWASP checks in the pipeline, some SAST, but rarely SCA or DAST testing. GitGuardian believes secrets detection and remediation is crucial for maintaining security and preventing unauthorized individuals from accessing sensitive information or disrupting critical systems. I agree and believe the value it can bring to an application security program is significant.
