Learning management software empowers companies to manage the delivery of online training courses, from the materials necessary to train employees and workshop courses to college curricula or a hybrid version. Before everything else, the tools can collect multiples training metrics for each student individually to help you define the most suitable learning environment for any student. Use it to conduct skills gap analysis with pre-testing, or draw the personalized learning curve during the course and adjust the learning speed. Likewise, it is simpler to grade student performance by adjusting your post-course tests and metrics. Learning management software also automates the clumsy process of record-keeping and registering, while you could even find a solution that contains collaboration features used to develop course materials.

Disaster recovery and security are two key elements that need to be considered by SaaS consumers when evaluating potential vendors.
Many SaaS vendors do not have a disaster recovery site. Therefore, ask the following questions to your shortlisted providers: How do you test your disaster recovery procedures? What is your recovery time? How often do you test? Do you have discrete infrastructure; are your main site and your disaster recovery site situated in different geographical locations?
You need to be aware that many SaaS providers do not use enterprise-grade infrastructure to deploy SaaS apps. Many programs have multiple providers. For instance, there may be a firewall provider, an Internet provider, and a few others too in the mix. If a problem rears up, there is a lot of finger-pointing. This problem is common with on-premise IT applications. The solution is to minimize the number of providers so that there is accountability to ensure they take responsibility about performance.
Ask the potential SaaS providers the following questions about security: Is your firm SAS70 compliant? What security processes are used at your facilities? What security audits and principles does your firm follow? Who manages access and identity management, web application firewalls, log file management, and network connectivity?
Needless to say, take your time to research thoroughly and get the answers to the above questions before you invest in an appropriate SaaS system.
