Product Review: Saba Social

eLearning 24-7

I admit that in general I have been underwhelmed in the past with Saba. A LMS whose UI is poor, ease of use not there and questionable feature sets and service.  So, when I went and checked out Saba Social, Saba’s new social learning platform, I had very low expectations. I was surprised. Upon entering Saba Social you are presented with an visually solid home screen.

Is Saba Coming Back?

Learning on the Leading Edge

Saba Software, the pioneer of the enterprise LMS business (yes, they really did define this market), seems to be coming back. I had the opportunity to attend the 2014 user conference and things feel different. I've been following Saba for more than 14 years now (I used client/server version - Saba 3.0), and the company has been through a lot. Saba pioneered the enterprise, multi-domain learning management system. They have always had strong support for customer education (the original Saba data model called a course a "product").

Clive on Learning

What interested me was the extent to which Saba has been remodelling its applications to reflect a very different view of what ‘people systems’ could consist of in the years to come. So what are Saba up to with their latest software?
