From its inception in 1999, we architected the Learn.com solution with extreme flexibility and adaptability
Sunrise, FL (Vocus) May 6, 2010
Learn.com®, the Knowledge PlatformTM company, announced today that Bersin & Associates, the only research and advisory firm focused solely on enterprise learning, gave the company high ratings across all maturity measures for platform adaptability in its just-published report, Adaptive Talent and Learning Platforms: How Software as a Service Is Changing the Markets for Talent and Learning Systems. The Bersin & Associates report evaluated the offerings of eight well-known providers including in five categories—Application, Interface, Data, Delivery and Operations.
“Our analysis shows Learn.com to be the only provider with full maturity in four of the five categories. It is the only provider to achieve full maturity in the application category, which encompasses configurability, workflow tools, and platform extensibility. Learn.com has clearly led the way in the evolution of adaptive learning and talent systems for some time,” said Josh Bersin, president.
Learn.com was recognized as the leader over Cornerstone OnDemand, Plateau Systems, Softscape, Mzinga and all others.
Learn.com cites one common misconception among LMS buyers is the difference between configurable and customizable. “Configurable” is the ability of the user to change the system without the need for programming knowledge. “Customizable” means the vendor can modify the system for an additional charge. According to the report, “One example of an LMS provider that led the way in offering configuration options instead of customization was Learn.com. This solution provider allows easy configuration of the user experience, allowing the administrator to create a completely configure the learning portal without any programming.”
“From its inception in 1999, we architected the Learn.com solution with extreme flexibility and adaptability,” said Jim Riley, President and CEO of Learn.com. “Our goal then, just as it is now, was to provide an end-to-end learning and talent management system with a low cost of ownership that meets the unique needs of virtually any organizations without the need for custom programming. Today we stand alone as the industry’s only true SaaS learning management solution. To meet various customer requirements, other vendors must customize their software and database structures which results in additional time, cost, loss of productivity and the always dreaded version-lock. Their solutions are really just ASP (application service provider) or “on-demand” but not true SaaS. Learn.com’s cloud-based SaaS solution gives our clients a distinct advantage over the other business models while still providing all the flexibility they need. It is good to see that analysts and users now appreciate that distinction.”
