SaaS Planning Virtual Workshop or
SaaS Express Workshop
Join us to start planning for a move to SaaS deployment
About the webinar
We understand that preparing for a move to the SaaS deployment for Learn requires thoughtful planning. That’s why we’re excited to offer a workshop that will provide you with valuable information and best practices to ensure your success.
The SaaS Planning Workshop is a 1-week program that is comprised of three, 1-hour virtual sessions. The sessions will provide you with step by step guidance as well as the resources you need to plan a successful migration to SaaS. You will have direct access to our product experts and your peers moving along a similar path, as well as the opportunity to attend optional virtual office hours after the workshop is complete. You will walk away from this program with the information and answers you need to plan your move to SaaS deployment.
In addition, by moving to SaaS deployment, you have the option to enable the Ultra experience for Learn. You can try Learn Ultra for yourself here.
