TIA's Transition Services


Heard the news that Oracle will no longer support User Productivity Kit (UPK) after April 2019? Wondering what to do with your UPK libraries? There is time to make a decision, and TIA has multiple roadmaps best to support your training vision and fit with your culture. Are your training programs delivering the results you expect? If not, use this time to invest in refreshing your training approach. Consider now the right time to make sure your training is current and engaging.

UPK is a simulation authoring tool that many Oracle clients used to build a training platform for end-users -- providing simulations and exported job aids and information materials. TIA can provide the following:

  • Convert Training Libraries - If your organization has spent significant time and resources building out your UPK library and would like to convert your content, Ancile uPerform would be a good option.  uPerform is very similar to UPK in cost and usage as well as offers an engine to convert your UPK content into uPerform.
  • Consider new Training Development Tools - If you are looking to transition from UPK to a new solution that develops more creative and engaging learning, TIA can help. We have found many companies own more than one authoring tool. We can work with whatever tools you own or recommend a new tool based on your needs and budget.  When it comes to eLearning, there is one question we get asked most frequently: "Which eLearning authoring tool is the best?" This is such a hard question to answer, especially nowadays with the great number of eLearning authoring tools that are on the market. Our answer is always the same: Each eLearning tool is the best in its own right - What one tool can provide another may not. It really does depend on what you want you want to achieve with the tool, who will be developing and consuming the eLearning, and how much you are willing to spend.  TIA has expertise with Articulate Storyline, Adobe Captivate, and Ancile's uPerform, just to name a few.
  • Consider the Cloud – a new Training Platform - With today's multi-generational workforce, timely training is more important than ever. Give your end-users the information they need, when they need it, with easily accessible cloud learning portals.  TIA's signature Learning as a Service (LaaS) consists of development of relevant and custom training materials, hosted as training libraries in the Cloud, which are accessible in 30 seconds or 3 clicks.
