This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of learning management capabilities offered as part of an integrated talent management solution through the IDC MarketScape model. This assessment discusses both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that explain a vendor's success in this market.
"Four vendors covered this year were not covered in last year's analysis because their talent suites lacked learning management. Vendors seeking to serve the talent management market realized that having a deep learning management module would be vital to success," says Lisa Rowan, research vice president, HR, Talent, and Learning Strategies for IDC. "Performance management only goes so far before it begs for tight association with the means to improve performance. Buyers have driven this attention to learning as we see through IDC's 2013 Survey of HR Executives that learning rose to eclipse the importance of performance in their minds."
