Cornerstone-Saba Acquisition: What Does it Mean for LMS Customers?

Talented Learning

Cornerstone plans to acquire Saba for a hefty $1.395 billion. Here’s why: Cornerstone is shaking-up the lives of over 3000 Saba customers, primarily to pump-up cash flow for its investors. This will come from eliminating Saba-related product and operational redundancy while simultaneously relying on the existing Saba customer base to shoulder continued innovation and marketing reach. Doesn’t sound like Saba customers will see much upside anytime soon.

Product Review: Saba Social

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. Saba Social is a very solid product, that despite a few hiccups and “huh&# moments, achieves what it sets out to do, provide a user friendly social experience.
