The argument that you have to spend over 50K to find a sweet LMS is totally bogus.  What is true is that there are plenty of awesome systems for less than 25K and even sweet systems with very nice feature sets for under 10K.

First off, it’s worth noting that Saba does not seem to have been suffering like so many of its competitors through the downturn: It gained 113 new customers in 2010, which was a record year. For many of us who have been involved in e-learning for quite some time, the ‘big LMS’ has disappeared off the radar to some extent, particularly with the increased focus on informal and collaborative learning. The company is debt-free.
