Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone is the #1 Learning Management System for a reason. The Learning Management and Performance Management tools are amazing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a talent platform. They have room to grow in the recruiting space. I believe that the new tools on the roadmap look promising, however, we ended up removing this tool from our contract and going with another vendor. Cornerstone is not nearly as experienced in the talent acquisition space as it is in talent management.

IBM Planning Analytics

Cognos TM1's ability to store and provide fast access financial data both on-premise and in the cloud makes it a great asset during month-end or year-end closing. The speed at which it can be updated and reflect GL changes for reporting makes it well suited for PL and BL reporting. For example, when it comes budgeting season and your FI application is getting hammered a speedy application makes your user base happy. However, Cognos TM1 is not well suited for reporting when you have to store a lot of granular data, think retail transaction level stuff, as Cognos TM1 is an OLAP data structure rather than relational.

Pros

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • User friendly and attractive website design.
  • It offers the ability to do online training, or also track face to face, on the job training.
  • It's continuously improving with new features to keep up with the growing demand for online learning.
  • Rather simple admin interface.
Jessica Bussey | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Planning Analytics

  • TM1 is tremendously more flexible than the competitor products due to its ability to calculate real-time.
  • Hierarchy changes are instantly available to take advantage of the real-time calculation. No pre-consolidations needed!
  • Native write-back capability allows for simple, integrated budgeting, forecasting and what-if analysis.
  • IBM is constantly improving the product and integrating with new products like Cognos BI, SPSS and is now beginning to integrate it with Watson Analytics.
  • New cloud versions of TM1 are now providing some really great web-based tools to simplify and streamline the presentation development and strengthen the self-service reporting, analytics and what-if analysis capacity.
Christopher Redmond | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • Observation checklists can be tricky to navigate
  • Updating content and how that affects Curriculum/re-versioning
  • Certification management can be frustrating for expired users
  • Removing content for terminated employees could be easier, instead of removing content item by item, would be nice to be able to remove all content from active transcript to removed transcript
Stephanie Dorsey | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Planning Analytics

  • Web interface can be improved to be made aligned with latest web technologies.
  • Dashboarding and reporting capabilities could be improved.
  • Email bursting of reports.
  • Email notifications to admin related to maintenance of the application such as database errors, etc.
  • Integration with other products such as Microsoft BI, Salesforce, etc.
  • Planning Analytics workspace setup could be improved.

As long as pricing stays reasonable, we will likely stay with Cornerstone for at least one more contract renewal. It would be a large task to migrate all of our content to a new system. However, the LMS landscape is diversifying with new startups that are showing some real innovation.

Since IBM Cognos Express is suitable only for medium data warehouse environment, we are not sure if this tool solves the long term need as the business keeps growing rapidly. So its a 50/50 ratio to renew Express license. But having said that, the components of IBM Cognos Express are also available in other Cognos BI suites like Cognos 10.x version. So we will probably upgrade our environment to IBM Cognos 10.x which comes with more new features.

Cornerstone OnDemand in general has very good usability. It is easy for end users to start using it. We don`t need to provide any trainings for learners or line managers. At maximum we can create one pager with general information. It is easy to search trainings. You don’t need to know the ID or full name of training.

Planning Analytics is a powerful tool that is easy for end users. The engine is extremely fast and can be customized to perform any type of calculations: financial or metric, detailed or consolidated, live or on demand, etc. We have used the system for basic calculations such as revenue (units * price), moderate calculations such as compensation (spread a salary across months based on the number of working days in the month), and complex calculations such as allocations (spread the administrative costs to IT and then do a secondary spread of the IT costs based on the number of employees in each department). All of the interfaces are easy for the end users to navigate and use due to simple buttons, icons and right-click options.

Pages do not load quickly. Often times any action or selection of a box, drop down, check, pretty much ANY Javascript interaction causes the whole entire page to load/reload/start doing something in the background. This makes a nightmare for having to mass edit courses or upload ILT sessions. It's the one of the archaic web designs they use that really bugs me as an admin and makes working in the portal at times intolerable and insufferable

They are still working out issues with their support ticket system. I think we are now experienced enough that when we submit a ticket, there is not a quick easy answer and involves higher levels of support so it does tend to take a LONG time to get assistance. When there is a major issue, their communication is getting better but when you have a defect to report or a high level support it's going to be a while. They do have EXCELLENT online help, a very active online community where customers help customers and great user groups so there is other avenues of help

Overall, my experience with using IBM Planning Analytics has been nothing short of amazing. I found the tool to be a true visionary among its competitors and offer value-added features that make it stand out from the pack. In particular, I applaud the AI features and they provide that next-level insight and processing capability that is hard to replicate with manual work.

Alternatives Considered

Cornerstone OnDemand

Cornerstone OnDemand is lightyears ahead of HealthStream. HealthStream's system is archaic and does not have any features besides basic compliance training. HealthStream is not visually appealing and users simply choose to log in and complete only what has been assigned to them. Cornerstone's catalog is so much more user friendly and inviting.
Chelsea Polette, M.A. | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Planning Analytics

IBM Cognos Analytics is not a replacement for IBM Planning Analytics. IBM Cognos Analytics is focused only on reporting, but in that section it's an excellent addition to IBM Planning Analytics. You can directly use IBM Planning Analytics as a data source in IBM Cognos Analytics. In our business case we use IBM Planning Analytics for forecasting, but the more extensive reporting is done in IBM Cognos Analytics (for example forecast accuracy).

Return on Investment

Cornerstone OnDemand

  • The work my small admin team has done in the past 2 1/2 years, would have cost my company hundreds of thousands of dollars with a 3rd party.
  • Using Cornerstone as an LMS has put our Company on the map for a leader in Learning and Development.
Nina Queen | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Planning Analytics

  • Increased employee efficiency. Employees have more time to analyze the results because little time is spent gathering or compiling data
  • More accurate forecasts and predictions based on the data due to it's efficiency
  • Better planning for future years based on accurate historical data
