REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – August 13th, 2015 – Saba, a global leader in cloud based intelligent talent management solutions, today announced it has been placed by Gartner Inc. in the “Visionaries” Quadrant of the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Talent Management Suites Report1.

“To be recognized again as a visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a testament, to our equally boundary-pushing customers like Dell, Virgin Atlantic, FlightCar, Yum! Brands and Guitar Center who inspire us with their strategic approach to driving better business with more intelligent talent management, “ said Tom Berquist, Saba CEO. “Saba’s proven track record in innovation makes Saba a great choice for companies looking to drive pioneering talent strategies. It also inspires us to continue to re-set the bar for an irresistibly easy to use and powerfully insightful technology solution.”

One of Saba’s innovative customers is Virgin Atlantic, which recently won an HR Excellence Award for its Learning and Development Strategy.

“We’re excited to be working with Saba as we transform our learning and talent processes,” said Joanne McGuire, VP of Organizational Development and Customer Training at Virgin Atlantic. “Saba’s comprehensive cloud offering unifies every aspect of learning technology which will accelerate the engagement, development, and inspiration of our employees. Saba Cloud enables us to extend our ‘loved for service’ learning by creating a simple user experience for delegates and instructors.”

Saba Cloud’s intelligent talent management platform leverages predictive analytics to deliver insights at every stage of employment from recruiting, learning and performance management, to compensation and succession planning.

Emily He, Saba’s Chief Marketing Officer, added that recognition in the report aligns with growing customer and prospect excitement about Saba’s:

  • Learning solution as best in class, and its performance and succession solutions as strong.
  • Integration between learning and development functionalities for development planning as a strength.
  • Innovation around analytics and collaboration within its product platform, including The Intelligent Mentor (TIM), which leverages machine learning technologies to provide users with more personalized and relevant information, and crowd-sourced assessment in its Impressions and Rock Star badges, which uses social dynamics to help organizations identify high potential employees.
  • Global implementation and support services, enabling it to serve large distributed enterprises.
