One more thing that I found this afternoon that I think you might find very interesting. This is an article about LMS penetration and how Blackboard has been like a glacier with such a dominant marketshare that is now melting: (https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/02/the-lms-market-glacier-is-...)

This quote stood out to me though:


It’s true that Blackboard still has greater market share than any other technology player in higher education. But Instructure’s Canvas LMS won almost 80 percent of new higher education implementations this year — a shift that may reflect the growing influence of faculty, rather than institutional, priorities in LMS purchasing. Consider this: While the LMS reached a saturation point among colleges and universities around 2003, it is only in the past 3-4 years that the vast majority of courses or faculty members routinely used an LMS.


80% of all new LMS contracts last year went to Canvas and Instructure?

WOW.

Saul likes to quote Talend talking about their "ridiculously high win rate", I would think that an 80% win rate would be able to get your attention.
