What is Microsoft BPCS and can it be used as an e-learning solution?

We are looking for a solution for a platform for e-learning. But I'm very busy and don't have time to research this myself. You can earn some points here just by explaining to me what it is, how it might useful in e-learning and what kind of equipment it requires.

No links please - just nice explanations in leymans terms!

Thanks in advance..

sorry I got carried away -- As for e-learning -- not sure how you would use it, however it is a dynamic and scaleable platform -- I don't know if it could be leveraged to aid in the delivery of the e-learning or not.  

What are you trying to acheive - ease of delivery of e-learning?

I have been told that Dynamics is very costly.  upwards of 60-80K for both hardware and software components.  I know they have some scaled back modules, even a small business model, so I am sure it is quite a bit less expensive.

Please tell me what your parameters are for e-learning i.e. number of clients both total and concurrent;  Types of applications - audio, video, etc. etc.  Who it's provided too (employees) and how much you plan to grow....

I believe that Microsoft's version of BPCS is Microsoft Dynamics.   BPCS is a set of integrated applications for the complete management of your business -- hence Business Planning and Control System, of which there are many on the marketplace... often these applications become islands of information that historically have not interfaced well with other systems.  I believe SAP is a common platform, and the goal 5-10 years ago was to enable systems to interface and communicate sychronously without have to give birth to triplets each time data was required from one system to the other.  

Dynamics is a scaleable system with modules built for integration with the enterprise system, and also is customizable with in house programming as well.  It provides a common architecture for your data and system integration.  

Here is a case study which talks about one company "replacing" it's BPCS with Dynamics.  http://download.microsoft.com/download/0/9/e/09e09d2a-a1bc-481a-be6c-9d5e26cf92a3/Dynamics%20AX%20Case%20Study%20-%20Champion%20Industries.doc
How did this work out??
