Dublin, CA – December 10, 2019 – Saba Software has been named a Leader in the Nucleus Research Talent Management Technology Value Matrix 2019 for the second consecutive year. Nucleus has also named Saba one of 12 “Hot Companies to Watch in 2020” – a list of tech companies that Nucleus sees as “poised to deliver breakthroughs in value to business customers in the coming year.”

Saba is recognized in the Value Matrix for transcending the traditional “module” approach to talent management, with innovations that instead focus on connected talent journeys that help organizations engage and inspire their people – where and when it matters – while giving talent leaders powerful tools and insights they need to prove the experience makes an impact on business success.

“In this year’s Value Matrix, Nucleus has assessed select talent management vendors based on their product usability and functionality as well as the value that customers realize from the capabilities of the product,” said Trevor White, Principal Analyst at Nucleus Research. “Leaders such as Saba recognize that a user-centric learning approach is critical not only to talent management success, but also to the overall upkeep of employee engagement. Saba’s solutions cater to unique individual needs and increase employee skills, productivity, and retention.”

The Talent Management Technology Value Matrix assesses talent management vendors on solution usability and functionality, as well as future strategic direction. Nucleus asserts that specialization across key areas of talent management will drive vendor success and that buyers are best served by suites with deep functionality that addresses their most pressing strategic talent priorities, particularly in the area of ongoing employee development, performance and engagement.

“We’re proud to be recognized again by Nucleus Research for our leadership and innovation around the talent experience,” said Theresa Damato, Saba’s CMO. “Saba’s continued leadership in talent is in large part due to the innovation mindset of our customers – their partnership and influence has helped us drive more dynamic, interactive and collaborative talent journeys, and create the highly personalized experiences that help people grow, develop, engage and ultimately create more value for their organizations.”
