In today’s competitive world, demand for alternative methods for learning is increasing exponentially. Companies are trying to introduce new or redesign their existing educational models to meet the technology changes and preferences of their employees. The use of corporate electronic learning (e -earning) is on the rise as many companies have adopted e-learning for employee training. It is not necessary for businesses to employ an expensive technology for online training. One of the most economical avenues is through Learning Management Systems (LMS). These versatile applications enable companies to conduct a broad array of live events ranging from informal meetings or training sessions to virtual classroom programs attended by scores of participants. They can be implemented quickly to provide secure, high-impact multi-media sessions. Events can also be recorded and archived for future access. LMS are used as virtual corporate platforms to ensure that employees are knowledgeable with updated skills and information. With the use of LMS’s, companies can create and track individual training schedules. One of the biggest challenges faced by companies today is finding right LMS for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of e-learning education courses or training programs.

By its very nature, the technology industry is constantly evolving and changing, so keeping employees up to speed on current best practices and leading innovations is crucial for every IT company. This paper presents results of the research study carried out in IT companies in Montenegro. The aim of the research is to analyze application and use of LMS and IT technologies as a choice for training, learning and sharing knowledge in IT companies. Based on the results of study we have presented some practical implication that IT companies can use to understand the demands and enhance employee knowledge and skills with online learning model.Special attention is given to identification of key features that can help IT companies to create and implement appropriate LMS for e-learning.
