Fosway 9-Grid™ analysis identifies Filtered as a Potential Challenger with accelerated trajectory

Learning NewsFiltered

Recent technological innovations earn Filtered recognition on the 2021 Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems.


In the newly released Fosway 9-Grid™, Filtered is recognised as a Potential Challenger. Its positioning with a high trajectory for further increasing potential indicates the prospects of its powerful new smart LXP to disrupt more cumbersome incumbents. This is a significantly increased position on last year’s 9-Grid™ in the Solid Performer zone. 

Filtered’s recent entrance into the LXP market is driven by a new paradigm for assessing the value of learning content: content intelligence. 

Content intelligence analyses content based on the text or transcript of the material itself and judges it according to one factor: how well it drives business goals. This cuts through the noise to give a clear picture of which content - and library - is actually delivering the most value for the business, and it is the technological realisation of Filtered’s “less is more” philosophy.

The Fosway 9-Grid™ classifies Filtered as a Specialist rather than a Suite solution. This reinforces the business’s single-minded commitment to challenging the fundamental industry problem with content overload - as well as its data-centric methods for doing so.

“It’s a real achievement to move into a different zone on any of the Fosway 9-Grids™, especially Learning Systems as the market is so competitive” said David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group. “This year’s advanced position as a Potential Challenger underpins Filtered’s continued growth and commitment to innovation as well as their ability to add value in a wider learning technology ecosystem.”

Filtered is continuing to expand on this as it becomes a clear challenger in the LXP market category. It has notably developed its own innovative versions of industry standard features such as shareable playlists, skills assessments and mentor matchmaking.

“This year is shaping up to be an exciting one as new challengers disrupt the learning system space,” said Toby Harris, Director of Product Marketing at Filtered. “We’re delighted to be recognised as one of those in this year’s 9-Grid, and we’re determined to be the first to solve the problem of content overload.”
