Learning Management Suite (LMS)

These are tools for managing, creating, scheduling training or learning in your organization. The terminology varies from vendor to vendor. Learning management systems (LMS) typically help to manage both classroom and on-line learning. They do not normally include content creation or management tools but may in some cases. Some LMSs may manage just classroom or just e-learning rather than both. Some LMSs may also include content authoring and managment and virtual classrooms. Learning content management systems (LCMS) emphasize the management of content for courses/training/learning. In most cases, they include content authoring tools. In some cases, they may also include some of the features of LMSs. Content authoring tools are often provided as part of an LCMS. They may also be stand-alone products. Virtual classrooms (web conferencing tools) normally are separate third party offerings but may be included as part of a suite of tools. Suites of tools include features of at least two or more of the above categories. While some companies offer just LMS or LCMS systems others offer suites of products, which provide all or most of the features of the other tools. Suites combine several capabilities of learning management--usually two or more of the following: learning management, classroom training management, e-learning management, custom content creation, learning content management, learning object repositories, or virtual classrooms.

BI for Everything: Trends in Business Intelligence and Data Management Solutions


Major changes have been reshaping the business intelligence (BI) landscape in the last couple of years. BI software solutions have become not only more specialized in functionality, but also more powerful, versatile, and sophisticated in their capability. In addition, the systems are less monolithic, more function oriented, and easier to use.

These major trends in the BI space are a culmination of the changes in the software industry over the past decade and a natural evolution of the BI field. Certainly, the emergence of new computing models—such as cloud computing; the verticalization of many branches of enterprise software solutions to offer software specialized by function, industry, or line of business (LoB); and of course, the advent of innovative technologies such as mobile computing, big-data analytics, and in-memory technologies—is greatly influencing the way BI is performed today.

The complete BI cycle is continuing to change at a fast pace, and so is the set of complementary solutions to support the complete decision-making process of an organization. This guide aims to look at some of the traditional systems as well as new options in the BI marketplace that can help today’s organizations deploy or enhance their decision-support platforms. Specifically, we will explore the main features and functions of these software solutions and the role they play within the BI cycle to help your organization make better and more informed decisions.

With so many changes taking place in the BI and business analytics (BA) industry, it’s hard to stay current. This buyer’s guide will walk you through some of the changes in the BI and data management spaces, the new types of products currently available, and the innovative trends that are gaining traction and reshaping the BI industry.

Because of the project-based and people-oriented nature of services organizations, this business segment requires software applications that are capable of supporting services oriented business processes and adequately handling multiple internal challenges that are intrinsic to this industry.
