Value Matrix Report

Recognized for a truly integrated view of the talent development experience

Dublin, CA – December 13, 2018 – Saba Software Inc. has been named a Leader in the Talent Management Technology Value Matrix 2018 report from Nucleus Research. Following Saba’s recent acquisition of Lumesse, Saba is poised to deliver a new talent environment for people at work – one that creates a connected, personalized and engaging experience across every stage of their journey, while delivering remarkable performance outcomes for their organizations.

“Today’s organizations are increasingly looking to shift top-down human resources processes, such as performance reviews and succession planning, to a bottom-up model, where each employee is evaluated as an individual on an ongoing basis,” said Trevor White, Principal Analyst with Nucleus Research. “Saba delivers talent development solutions that help organizations attract, recruit and onboard the right candidates, and then develop and coach those people to the highest levels of performance, growth and engagement. And with its recent addition of Lumesse, Saba now has deep global reach, and a truly integrated talent development solution that spans the entire employee lifecycle and connects the success of employees to the success of the business.”

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. Lumesse was also noted as an Expert in the report.

“We’re honored to be recognized again by Nucleus for our continued leadership in talent,” said Theresa Damato, Chief Marketing Officer of Saba. “Saba’s vision is to help HR and talent leaders drive more value and advantage by creating a new talent environment for their people – one that reproduces the personalized, intuitive and connected experiences people expect outside work, inside work. We’re very proud to share this success with our customers, who have been instrumental in helping us design the new innovations that organizations need as they rise up to meet the future of work.”
