Bracknell, UK ― January 23, 2018 — Saba, a leading provider of people-centric talent management solutions, today announced the company has been named a Strategic Leader for the fourth consecutive year in the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems. In addition to the company’s product innovation and sophisticated enterprise-grade learning capabilities – both factors influencing leader placement – Saba is again the only Strategic Leader to also be recognised by Fosway Group for a total cost of ownership that meets the needs of organisations of all sizes.
