India’s IT giant Infosys is planning on selling its learning platform Lex to the clients after rebranding the product, The Economic Times reported.
The mobile app platform has content from Infosys as well as third party specialised content.
In an effort to monetise and build expertise in business, IT companies such as Infosys and TCS are willing to sell their learning platforms built for their employees, the ET report said.
“The Lex platform that we have built has become so powerful that our clients want to buy it. This has also become a sales tool kit for us. Internally, it will be Lex, but it will be something else outside. We haven’t sold anything but if it starts to pick up, say 500,000 employees of different companies could start to use it and that is what we are looking at,” Salil Parekh, chief executive officer, Infosys told the paper.
Tata Consultancy Services is also looking to sell its re-skilling services Ion to provide online courses and enter the digital learning space and content marketplace, the report said, adding that it has already taken its platform to Japan, among other countries.
