#HRTECH Learning Vendors Preview – Who to see and who to avoid

eLearning 24-7

Oracle Taleo. The system at one time was solid – during learn.com days, then Taleo bought it, said it would be infusing a lot of money into it – and later on, said they infused more money into it, than the days of learn.com.  . If you are an Oracle customer, you can interface or API with many LMS vendors in the market.  I say this because I surmise there are Oracle customers who decided to go with the learning system because it was also Oracle.  . Welcome, welcome all! To those from HR who are new to this blog, I give a high five. digress.

The Ever Changing State of the Learning Technology Industry

Learning on the Leading Edge

Initially developed as content delivery platforms, these early players (Learn.com and GeoLearning, for example) offered their platforms "on-demand," a phrase which is now called "in the cloud." Learn.com was acquired by Taleo and then Oracle. Over the last ten years the learning technology industry has undergone radical change. Then came talent management.

Top 50 LMS Report for 2016 – What you need to know (criteria, approach, and yeah some vendors)

eLearning 24-7

identify the Big Dogs as SumTotal by Skillsoft (yes, that is the actual name),  Cornerstone OnDemand, Saba, SucessFactors and Oracle Taleo (although, I ask myself who is using this and if you still are why?). Oracle Taleo – Seriously, either overhaul this thing or dump it and torch it.   I feel bad for the folks who were learn.com, then thought Taleo would improve it, then Oracle.   And BTW, nearly every LMS can interface with Oracle products. It’s nearly here.  In a little over two months, my 2016 Top 50 LMS Report will be available for purchase.

SumTotal Acquires GeoLearning: LMS Market Consolidation Continues

Learning on the Leading Edge

GeoLearning was the arch-rival to Learn.com (now acquired by Taleo ), so this takes the two largest mid-market LMS companies and now makes them part of larger players. The only major players left in the enterprise LMS market are Plateau , Saba, Oracle, SAP, CornerstoneOnDemand , Taleo/Learn.com, and Blackboard. The acquisition of GeoLearning makes sense for several reasons.

SuccessFactors Acquires Plateau: Accelerating a Global Powerhouse

Learning on the Leading Edge

While analysts and buyers in the market know Plateau well, the company was not well known to HR executives, so its sales and marketing challenges became bigger as players like SuccessFactors, Taleo, Saba, Workday, and Oracle became more aggressive in the market. The company evaluated the possible acquisition of GeoLearning (acquired by SumTotal Systems), Learn.com (acquired by Taleo), and others. A few months ago the company acquired Jambok, a small technology company with an excellent social learning solution - but still did not have a solid LMS strategy in place.

LMS Satisfaction Features and Barriers

Several of the LMS vendors appear more than once, such as Oracle. Most of the time (as is the case with Oracle) these are different products. Oracle's ( Learning Management and PeopleSoft Enterprise Learning Management but less so it's iLearning ) and SAP Enterprise Learning score better than I would have expected.

2015 Talented Learning LMS Vendor Award Recipients

Cornerstone Acquires Sonar6: Talent Management for SMB

Learning on the Leading Edge

Cornerstone's thesis is that SAP and Oracle, with their new acquisitions of SuccessFactors and Taleo, will take their eye off the SMB ball, leaving the market wide open. Learn.com sold its LMS into the SMB market, and they did grow to around $30M before they gave up, and they found that a small subset of smaller companies really badly need training management systems. An SMB Play.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use. You can never keep up with it all, but access to many experts who are also finding and sharing the lastest tech tools make it much less daunting.

They are from other markets, but are entering and purchasing, and yes in some cases assimilating.   Let’s take a brief look at a couple of recent moves: Taleo acquires Learn.com. They are an ERP system founded by the guy who started Peoplesoft and then eventually sold it to Oracle. Even if you are not in the TM market, but you pitch that your system integrates well with ERP systems, such as SAP, Oracle and Peoplesoft, I would want to start having meetings internally on Workday.  Get your tablets here. your tablets. and HTML5.
