The efficiencies that eLearning affords stem from automation, customization and self-service. These attributes allow end users (employees and others) to access just the right training at just the right time. They also provide Learning and Development administrators the peace of mind that training will be delivered as needed, in a consistent manner and that tracking the progress of individuals will also be made simpler by automation.

AI is also becoming strategically important to national defense and in securing our critical financial, energy, intelligence, and communications infrastructures against state-sponsored cyberattacks. According to an October 2016 report issued by the federal government’s National Science and Technology Council Committee on Technology (NSTCC), “AI has important applications in cybersecurity, and is expected to play an increasing role for both defensive and offensive cyber measures.” Based on this projection, the NSTCC has issued a National Artificial Intelligence Research and Development Strategic Plan to guide federally-funded research and development.

In November 2008, Teach For America launched an accelerated search to find an LMS that could replace the two systems it currently used to create and upload courses. The organization discovered that Cornerstone OnDemand's availability on a Software-as-a- Service (Saas) basis would allow Teach For America to quickly implement an LMS as well as eliminate hardware and maintenance costs.
In the 2014 Workforce Talent and Workforce Management Outlook survey, Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the research arm of Workforce magazine, in partnership with Cornerstone OnDemand set out to discover where HR leaders are seeing their greatest successes and feeling the greatest pain. Additionally, we explored how HR leaders are setting priorities for the coming years. While there are surveys that address how the needs of HR vary, many focus on the difference between small and large organizations with the assumption that midsized organizations are similar enough to large organizations not to require extra focus. To get a different perspective, we looked specifically at how the HR function in midsized organizations compares to their much larger counterparts. Are they as similar as is popularly believed?
