Product Review: Saba Social

eLearning 24-7

I admit that in general I have been underwhelmed in the past with Saba. So, when I went and checked out Saba Social, Saba’s new social learning platform, I had very low expectations. Upon entering Saba Social you are presented with an visually solid home screen.

Special Post – Why the Big Four are not on my latest Top 10 LMS List

eLearning 24-7

Since my Top 10 list of LMS vendors has been posted online, I have received quite a bit of e-mail wondering why the biggest names: Cornerstone On Demand, Saba, SumTotal and SuccessFactors are not on the list. When I talk about a LMS, I am saying specifically a learning management system and the vendors themselves should see their own product first and foremost as a LMS, not as a TM/PM or whatever. From a general product standpoint, go take a look at Amazon.com or Consumer Reports.

I identify the Big Dogs as SumTotal by Skillsoft (yes, that is the actual name), Cornerstone OnDemand, Saba, SucessFactors and Oracle Taleo (although, I ask myself who is using this and if you still are why?). However, I will say this: I like what Saba is doing. The system still – equally as Saba – needs some work. Saba Learning. And BTW, nearly every LMS can interface with Oracle products. It’s nearly here.

20 Saba Learning Suite. With its m-learning capability including on/off synch and rather solid UI, the product continues to be an effective solution. While the pricing is outrageous and the Saba as a whole seems better suited as a HCM, their learning suite is a better alternative than those who want Cornerstone OnDemand. Feature wise the product is impressive. The product is always cutting edge and their mobile is outstanding.

The Cornerstone Effect

Similar thoughts are often associated with SumTotal (although they have vastly improved their UI, but they do see themselves at least from my take, and even through a Google search as a HCM, especially after the acquisition by Skillsoft), SuccessFactors, Oracle Learn, Saba, Kenexa and a few others. I mean sure I hear we got folks from SumTotal or Saba (heard quite frequently of late), but by a hug margin, Cornerstone comes up way more. It can make or break any product.

That said, even if they weren’t providing the platform for me, I still will love the product. Feature wise this product is fantastic. Saba: See SumTotal. Hello from sunny Los Angeles.

If your LMS is in the cloud (SaaS), you have a web site, what stops someone from checking out your product and buying it – regardless of where they are in the world? I often hear vendors say “we focus first on the product, then will market it” – here is an idea – do both at the same time – Yowsa, what a concept! At the entry point it identified what each letter stood for, thus if you saw – D it meant there was Dairy in the product. .
