Special Post – Why the Big Four are not on my latest Top 10 LMS List

eLearning 24-7

Since my Top 10 list of LMS vendors has been posted online, I have received quite a bit of e-mail wondering why the biggest names: Cornerstone On Demand, Saba, SumTotal and SuccessFactors are not on the list. When I talk about a LMS, I am saying specifically a learning management system and the vendors themselves should see their own product first and foremost as a LMS, not as a TM/PM or whatever. I have some real concerns on what is taking place with Saba today.

LMSs – Finally vendors took notice. Authoring Tools – With only a small sample of vendors that are SaaS based, pickings are slim.

I’ve heard vendors rave how awesome they are, how much their clients love them, how they understand what the market needs and wants, how their support is number one and so on and so on. Grab a set of records and rather than smash them everywhere, tell you, the LMS vendor, what I’d want to see in your system, that will take you to number one (on the charts). Sadly to many vendors this is not feasible. Schedule more than one training session for administrator(s).

However, those vendors who rely solely on this argument are very likely to find themselves quickly marginalized. To stay relevant, George believes training vendors should do two things: Stop talking “learning” and start talking “capacity” and “execution” like the rest of the C-suite.
