Future of LMS

Here is an interesting website on the future of the LMS:

http://www.futureoflms.com

Some of the items that are considered in future LMSs:

Software As A Service (SaaS)
Social Collaboration
Big data tools
Fun learning environment
Open Source Software
Inclusion of new stuff like the Experience API (xAPI)
Mobile applications

I am just not sure whether the next generation LMS will address more of the learning issues or just adding in more new technology!
