Redwood Shores, CA, September 28, 2015 –– Saba, a leader in cloud-based intelligent talent management solutions, today announced its continued momentum for best-in-class learning and development solutions for companies of all sizes.

According to a 2015 Deloitte Human Capital Trends Survey, the need to transform and accelerate corporate learning tripled in the past year, while companies’ confidence in their ability to deliver on learning sharply declined (from 75% to 40%). This, in turn, has contributed to global market momentum for Saba’s learning-centric Talent Management solutions that deliver scalable, secure, collaborative and agile support for formal, informal, social and collaborative learning.

That agility has been key to global customers of all sizes turning to Saba for engagement-focused learning to address better ways to connect, develop, advance and incent their people. In the past year, increasing demand for Saba Cloud from companies of all sizes, including industry leaders like Dell, Virgin Atlantic and Air Canada, and closely-watched new business model innovators like FlightCar, drove user growth of over 100%.

The company’s proven platform, Saba Cloud, is based on 18 years of learning management systems experience. Saba Cloud’s innovation and talent management leadership has been acknowledged this year in reports by Gartner, IDC, Bersin and the Fosway Group. Further, the solution has been vetted for advanced security and scalability by the world’s largest businesses.

Two examples at opposite ends of size and scope help highlight the breadth and leverage of Saba Learning: Dell and FlightCar.

Dell is using Saba Cloud to power product learning across 475,000 learners including employees, partners and customers. The business has been extremely innovative in tapping Saba to host learning content across a variety of mediums including “scan-to-learn” video linked to barcodes on its machines.

“Every end user wants a unique experience, customized just for them, whether you’re a Millennial, a Gen X or you’re a baby boomer like myself, you want to feel that user experience is designed specifically for you,” said Charles Atkins, Director of Global Learning and Development, Dell. “Now we have a true management system in place with Saba that is relevant for our end users.”

“Saba is helping us transform our learning by making it more simple and personalized,” said Sydney Savion, Global Learning Officer, Global Support and Deployment Learning & Development, Dell. “Saba technology gives us the ability to measure the learning, aligning it to industry standards and providing global, 24/7 availability.”
