A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

Where it's strong: Linux, open source technologies, web development administration, virtualization and automation, cloud platforms like AWS and Azure, CI/CD trainingWhere it's lacking: The more traditional aspects of IT -- Windows, Active Directory, IT Service Management. storage administration and networking basics... advanced networking also, like CCNA, would be nice.

We have been very pleased with BizLibrary. The best thing is that we are able to reach everyone across the U.S. and provide consistent training. We use it primarily for management and leadership training. Our employees have enjoyed the classes and say that frequently they learn something new and if not, the content provides a good refresher

Pros

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • The videos are short and easy to ingest. This is super important! Long videos get boring and people lose interest quickly
  • New training videos for new technology are always being added regularly
  • In addition to new videos, existing training videos are updated when software or technology changes, ensure that you always have current information while you're learning
Anthony Tutrone | TrustRadius Reviewer

BizLibrary

  • Client success managers, in addition to helping with course selection, give advice on building your learning program.
  • The BizLibrary tech team was instrumental in working with my LMS provider to tackle some technical challenges.
  • The biggest strength BizLibrary has, in addition to its huge content library, is a team truly dedicated to your success.

Cons

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

  • The merger with A Cloud Guru has confused things a bit. They're slowly replacing the Linux academy branded training with ACG training (which is fine) but if we found ourselves losing access to training videos while we were in the midst of watching them
  • A more robust community would be nice. There's the Slack channel, but I wish there was more robust community features
  • It would be nice to be able to download videos locally on desktops and laptops. This helps greatly with rewinding the video to reiterate key learning points

BizLibrary

  • The reporting options changed when the program was updated. You have to go through more steps to find the data to download. I would like more canned reports.
  • Adding a new learner is easy, but it takes more time to get them into the right group. We segment learners by company and role to make assigning topics easier for us.

The site can have some issues. It can be difficult to return to the training module you were viewing after some time away from the site and you have to relogin. We've also had issues where the session will time out at random points, which makes it frustrating to move on to the next videos in the module when you have to re-login and try and find which one you left off on.

I've never had to communicate with Linux Academy's customer support aside from some minor billing issues, which were easily ironed out in a very quick manner.

When reaching out for support, BL is quick to respond. Even if they do not have a solution - such as when lessons were retired without a replacement - they are always thoughtful and informed.

Alternatives Considered

A Cloud Guru (Linux Academy)

We've tried CBT Nuggets, Pluralsight, ITProTV, and even official training programs directly from the software vendors. Linux Academy outranks them all simply because of the quality of the training videos compared to the monthly costs. It's hard to beat its affordably, especially when the training material is such high quality and engaging
Anthony Tutrone | TrustRadius Reviewer

BizLibrary

We selected BizLibrary because it addressed the needs of training for both professional and hands-on positions within our organization. The ability for our team members to access it online ensures consistent training across multiple locations and provides all of our team members with the ability to develop skills for their current roles and also develop new skills to grow in their career.

BizLibrary

  • Employee engagement feedback related to the need for learning & development has already seen an uptick. Many express alot of gratitude/appreciation for the JIT learning opportunity.
  • 1st year ROI achieved with first half-dozen employees who participated in courses which were otherwise budgeted to be taken as one-day, offsite sessions from other (classroom) vendors.
  • Broad-based management support was at first a struggle, to be candid, but as employees have completed courses and then we've followed up, managers are now providing positive feedback from their perspective.
