Maarten van Heiningen at the Liferay & Valamis DSF 2016

Componence can look back on a successful Liferay & Valamis Digital Solutions Forum. More than fifty enthusiastic guests visited this inspiring event based on eLearning, business digitization and open source. The participants came from various organizations in both the public and the private sector. The Liferay & Valamis DSF took place in Culemborg on 17 March.

Clear business cases

The afternoon was opened by ICT advisor Wilfred Rubens, whose keynote speech described the possibilities of social eLearning. This was followed by informative customer presentations about the phenomenon-based learning environment of the Finnish PKKY and the worldwide roll-out of the eLearning platform and certification system of the Swedish Abloy.

Jyri Pötri, senior consultant at Arcusys, focused on the Valamis for Liferay implementation of Phillips-Medisize Finland. This platform provides the company with a solution to various compliance issues and also yields a substantial saving of 1.7 million euros per year.

Case: Dokter A. Verschoorschool

Advisor Jan-Pieter Breugem, managing director of TrippleA, spoke on behalf of the Dokter A. Verschoorschool in Nunspeet. He showed that Valamis for Liferay can also enhance the life of individuals. This school for special needs education uses the learning environment to provide personalized lessons and remote teaching, for example for autistic children. Teachers have access to user-friendly tools for developing their lesson material and to provide pupils with tailor-made coaching and support.
