Both Educational Institutions and Corporations Contribute to Demand

Learning management systems (LMS) are useful for both educational institutions and corporations. Extended enterprise online training, in which companies deploy online training resources to external sales channels, customers, and franchises, is one of its major applications. Adds the lead analyst of our report, “Large and small and medium enterprises are increasing supplanting conventional methods of learning with innovative technology-driven ones to improve performance of employees. In the educational sector too, analytical practices are being leveraged extensively to enable students learn more effectively.”

However, all the aforementioned would not have been possible with the smart devices that are getting sophisticated by the day. Smartphones, tablets, and other handheld smart gadgets are majorly driving the market for learning management systems (LMS) since they lower the learning and development costs.

The market is also being fueled by the popularity of data-driven learning tools. “There is soaring uptake of analytics in both businesses and education to enable better decision-making and this is expected to fuel adoption of learning management systems (LMS),” observes our in-house lead analyst.
