Talent development leader to showcase latest learning innovations at Learning Technologies UK Conference and Learning Lounge


Bracknell UK – February 11 2019 – Saba Software, the talent development company, today announced that is has been named as a Strategic Leader in the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Learning Systems for the fifth consecutive year. This placement recognises Saba’s market performance, growth and customer advocacy and impact in Europe, and the breadth and depth of Saba’s solution capabilities in learning, which flex to meet diverse customer requirements.

“Saba continues to be a significant player in the learning space in Europe, with proven commitment to ongoing product innovation and to its customers’ success,” said David Wilson, CEO of Fosway Group. “Saba’s learning solutions have the depth of sophistication that larger organisations often need, as well as the capabilities to give their learners the personalised development experience that enables performance and growth.”

Since the last Fosway 9-Grid for Learning Systems was released, Saba has accelerated its learning innovation focused on putting people and teams in the driver’s seat their own development experience. These advancements included new video learning gamification and rewards capabilities, “content your way” platform and partner expansions, and new ways to deliver personalised experiences and strengthen the connection between learning and performance.

“We’re delighted to be consistently recognised as a strategic leader in learning by Fosway,” said Christian Foerg, General Manager of Saba in EMEA. “This is both a testament to how Saba is advancing learning technology to drive a personalised, engaging experience for employees that supports organisational goals, and a reflection of the tremendous collaboration we have with our customers and partners, who are helping us to transform talent development.”

Saba’s acquisition of Lumesse in 2018 added powerful digital learning expertise and capabilities to the company’s portfolio. This added strength earned Saba a Strategic Challenger placement in the Fosway 9-Grid™ for Digital Learning, recognising the growth trajectory of its digital learning capabilities in terms of new innovation and growing customer advocacy and presence in Europe.
