Cornerstone-Saba Acquisition: What Does it Mean for LMS Customers?

Talented Learning

Cornerstone plans to acquire Saba for a hefty $1.395 billion. Here’s why: Cornerstone is shaking-up the lives of over 3000 Saba customers, primarily to pump-up cash flow for its investors. This will come from eliminating Saba-related product and operational redundancy while simultaneously relying on the existing Saba customer base to shoulder continued innovation and marketing reach. Doesn’t sound like Saba customers will see much upside anytime soon.

Can you recommend an LMS?

Yet, as I have often noted, it is rarely pushed upon in an RFP, let alone a demo. You the consumer can use the support card as part of your RFP process, which I strongly recommend. . I admit I was surprised that Cornerstone Learning Suite, Saba, Blackboard, Bridge, SuccessFactors, Linkedin Learning and even Docebo did not. Saba the same thing. And many you can schedule a demo, send RFP, etc. Perhaps you have to someone you know.

LMS Identify

A friend of mine, got a RFP template from a LMS vendor’s web site. I am not a fan of grabbing RFP templates off of vendor’s web sites, only because if you read them in detail you will start to realize that for some of the questions, it is really geared toward that vendor’s product. If you are going to use the RFP template, then strip it down. With a SaaS based system, there is no need for a 10 or higher RFP. Welcome, Welcome. How are you today?
