Upside Learning

This is linked to the requirement on white-labeling (mentioned further in this post) where the company wants to go as a self-sustaining provider to its customers. However the LMS vendor needs to set up proper systems and training for the company to provide support. Functionality Modules In terms of the functionality modules, companies like to keep the entire system simple and easy to use and do not have a big list of functionalities required: 1. Training companies the world over are changing the way they operate and the services they offer customers.

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?). But, they do use modules (so you can buy learning for example, and then down the road or at the same time performance and so forth). . To me, each one of them does a lot of different things, but learning is a secondary, not primary. . I say this, and you can see it yourself, buy seeing all the modules available.  Cornerstone OnDemand. Not everyone gets in.

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

Cornerstone OnDemand. CoD uses the module angle, whereas you can buy one module (learning for example) and if you want performance management – that is a separate module.  I’m not a fan of modules, but that isn’t what bothers me the most about their offering. No, it is when people looking for systems assume that every LMS follows the module approach.  The truth of the matter is that less than 10 vendors (that I am aware of) out of 680+, go module. Welcome, welcome all! Why am I so happy?  It is HR Tech.  Good to Excellent.

As you can see, providing insight when you haven’t been standing in your “shoes” in a manner of speaking, really doesn’t tell you the reality, because they haven’t had to be in reality.

Let’s jump right in – but first let me say this – I for the life of me cannot understand why the conference on day one did not provide free lunch boxes? . Clearly this meant they have the module off, but how hard is it, to go on the back end and turn it on? The person who provided/showed me the product was fantastic.  He deserves a raise.  I found out via our conversation that he was a former trainer, and it showed in how he presented the product.  Cornerstone OnDemand. Anyone?). Thanks for nothing (do you sense bitterness? Good). Halogen. SilkRoad.

#25 to #11 LMSs of 2012

While the pricing is outrageous and the Saba as a whole seems better suited as a HCM, their learning suite is a better alternative than those who want Cornerstone OnDemand. 21 CFR Part 11, a very strong compliance mgt module incl. great example of someone who doesn’t do a lot of advertising, is under the radar, inexpensive but still provides enough to be effective. It is the holiday season and for those who see me as the grinch (okay a few vendors do, but I digress) here is a special post.  Next week, 12-12-12, will be #10 to #1 learning management systems for 2012.
