The Awards, which took place at the Enterprise Learning! Conference & Expo, at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine, California, USA, are based on the votes of learning professionals and executives in an open-ended online ballot conducted over the summer. Some 3,881 nominations were collected over the three month balloting period and, in all, 72 products across 21 categories were named best-in-class in 2012.
In winning the Best Learning Content Management System category, eXact learning LCMS beat runners-up SumTotal Systems LCMS, Xyleme and Inc LCMS.
“Given the number of nominations, to earn an Award of Excellence is quite an honour - and, to be named a category winner is a true testament to the vendor’s product and service excellence,” said Catherine Upton, Elearning! Media Group’s publisher.
Fabrizio Cardinali, CEO of eXact Learning Solutions’ North America and Australia operations and Senior Vice President of the company’s Global Business Development, said: “It’s deeply gratifying to receive this accolade from the learning industry’s professionals. It’s always very pleasing to receive the endorsement of those who use your products.
“During the past few months we have been working hard to ensure that our eXact learning LCMS platform meets today’s needs and trends,” he added. “To that end, we intend to announce some enhancements to the LCMS that should make it even more of a market leader in its field.
“This prize adds to many analysts and technology reviewers’ awards, but it is particularly significant for us since it comes from those who use and experience learning solutions on a daily basis.
“And it comes just before the launch of our new Version 10 in October which will add unique learning content personalisation and integration features with third party LMSs. So this is a perfect moment to celebrate!
“eXact learning LCMS is a world-leading LCMS, which is currently installed in more than 100 organisations worldwide,” he added.
“On 17th October, we will present the brand new Version 10, which includes unique features such as dynamic publishing, template-based personalisation, DITA support, and much more.
“It’s increasingly important to develop and store learning content in such a way that it is conducive to it being used – not just in a static, blended approach to learning but also in a dynamic way that is able to repackage itself, interoperating with media and skills based personalisation systems within the enterprise,” Cardinali explained.
“This will allow it to adapt, in real time, to the learner’s personality, perspective and learning preferences; as well as her/his skills and competency gaps, the learner’s location and the available device to deliver the learning and/or support. Moreover, the content must be easily delivered from the central enterprise repository or a federated network of corporate repositories.
“These and other issues will be addressed in the new version of exact learning LCMS, which will be unveiled soon.”
