CEO’s Perspective

The corporate and academic LMS segments are distinctly different in terms of feature requirements, sales strategy, and competitive differentiation. Crossover is highly challenging.
The market is highly competitive, fragmented, and warming up to higher levels of consolidation. Mergers and acquisitions will play a key role in ensuring vendor competitiveness.
LMS is usually sold as part of a larger solution set (like a talent management suite in the corporate market) and is sometimes bundled with content. Effective strategy demands partnerships with technology vendors and content providers.
A large number of clients are dissatisfied with their current LMS and are looking forward to a replacement. Vendors must invest in improved reporting capabilities, appearance, ease of use, and support.
Emerging economies in Asia and Latin America present an attractive business opportunity. Product localization and regional system integrator partnerships are the keys to global growth.

Value Proposition

•Corporate LMS provides an effective means for ubiquitous delivery of eLearning content to employees on the fly. Further, corporate LMS is integrated with talent management software to unite learning with performance objectives. Learning and development departments also benefit from increased employee engagement and retention, associated with the implementation of LMS. Moreover, reduction in training costs is a key business imperative that justifies the business case for LMS.
•Academic LMS serves as an excellent means to deliver multimedia and interactive course content to the present generation of digitally connected students. The need for this shift in learning/teaching methodologies is the result of change in expectations of students and their parents from educational institutions. The reason for this change is that students are exposed to multiple alternatives for enhancing their knowledge, such as free online courses on the Web, social media, blogs, wikis, and learning apps. Moreover, student engagement seeks to improve through delivery of such forms of content and through learning-focused collaboration and social learning in and beyond the classroom.
•There is a high level of commoditization of LMS features. The gap between small, emerging providers and market leaders in terms of product features and capabilities has diminished. This makes LMS a buyers’ market. Buyers have a number of options to choose from in terms of pricing, delivery, and features. In addition, customers are becoming increasingly price sensitive.
•Major technological trends in the LMS market include mobility in learning, social learning and collaboration, personalized learning environments, learning analytics and reporting, eCommerce functionality, and growing preference for adoption of SaaS-based delivery models for deployment.
