A significant development is in the evolution of SaaS-based LMS architecture. The first SaaS LMS vendors went to market with a single tenant architecture. This means that a deployment of their system could be used for a single audience—all users would be sent to a single instance of the LMS.
More recently, a small number of SaaS LMS vendors have gone to market with a multi-tenant architecture. A multi-tenant LMS allows the administrator to launch new instances of the application on-demand. The value in multitenancy is in the ability to create a dedicated learning environment for each of your unique audiences.
