Percentage of knowledge that employees need to remember to do their work.The landscape around how Education Services and products are accessed and used is under a radical evolution. Functional expertise is now as much a by-product of "Googling" as it is professional experience and knowledge. A 20-year study, conducted from 1986 to 2006, assessed the percentage of knowledge required by workers to complete their work; researchers determined that there was a 7x DECREASE in the value of retained knowledge for employees over that time period. The change engine in this dynamic – the Internet. Fast forward seven years into the era of BYOD and it's clear that creating highly accessible "byte-sized" access to information assets is critical for employee success.

Commvault is a company that listens to its customers, and working closely with our customers and our support partners, we developed a new education and training program that we proudly launched today. We also introduced a new series of monthly technology webinars, called "Ask the Educator," led by Commvault knowledge specialists who will address the most frequently asked questions and the broadest needs for "fast information access" by customers. Each topic in this series is presented by a Commvault Educator with years of Simpana® software "know-how" and thousands of hours of teaching experience.

Each webinar will begin with a practical technical summary of the featured Simpana software functionality, followed by a review of tips, techniques, and Best Practices to help expand your Commvault knowledge and expertise. Throughout this discussion and during a "live" question and answer session, participants share valuable experiences and best methods for managing and protecting data.

As we continuously expand our Education Services portfolio, additional education elements will be accessible to our customers, partners, and prospects – aligned with how this information is used to improve personal and professional performance.

We look forward to your participating in the upcoming Ask the Educator sessions. We hope you'll find this series to be stimulating and informative. Take a look at the topics and then register today to attend any or all sessions.
