Learning is crucial for corporations, who need to acquire newer skills and knowledge on a continuous basis. This has generated tremendous interest and adoption of Learning Management Systems (LMSs) among corporations over the last decade or so. However, the increasing use of LMS brought with it overheads in the implementation and maintenance of the new system. The amount of time and finances invested in managing an LMS is considerable, and even companies which excel in change management find it increasingly difficult to achieve widespread adoption and user satisfaction.

According to the 2014 LMS Trends Survey conducted by the Brandon Hall Group, 54% of all deployed LMSs are in the Cloud. This is indicative of the slow but steady movement towards cloud-based LMS deployments. The reasons for this are many – Cloud LMSs are budget-friendly as well as easier to maintain on account of faster updates, upgrades, and fixes. The report also indicates that Cloud Learning Management System users are also most satisfied with the learning system – due to a myriad of contributing factors. The following graph shows the percentage impact of several factors.
