Skillsoft buying SumTotal – My Take

eLearning 24-7

Like many of you, I was surprised to find out that Skillsoft is in the process of acquiring SumTotal. The reason for the acquisition at least from a press release and information on the purchase (and available for viewing on the Skillsoft site), screams of HCM (Human Capital Management). Combination of Skillsoft and SumTotal offers comprehensive, content-rich HR solutions. Getting back to Skillsoft and SumTotal. As for Skillsoft, they are a content provider.
