Power Up Your People

Saba People Systems Drive Business Outcomes by Engaging and Mobilizing People, Cultivating and Igniting Knowhow, and Accelerating the Flow of Business

CHICAGO (September 29, 2010) – HR Technology Conference 2010, Booth #916

Saba (NASDAQ:SABA), the premier people systems provider, is leading the charge with today’s introduction of Saba People Systems, a unified suite of powerful collaboration, learning, and performance applications designed to “power up” the individuals in the organization. It is the only solution in the marketplace that embeds enterprise business networking capabilities in the traditional learning and performance management business processes, allowing employees, partners, and customers to work better and work together to achieve sustainable competitive advantage.

News Facts

  • In an era where team collaboration and matrix organizations are common, Saba changes the game by expanding the focus from individuals to teams and the enterprise business network. Saba People Systems enable businesses to drive strategy and innovation from the bottom up instead of strictly from the top down, connecting people to strategy rather than simply creating reports for executives.
  • Saba People Systems provide embedded enterprise business networking capabilities within talent management processes to drive ongoing user engagement. This enables real-time performance feedback, rapid course correction, and the closing of skill gaps using actionable coaching and development.
  • Saba delivers actionable social learning, coaching, and mentoring to help close competency gaps. Mentors, whose expertise is rated by the community, can be easily identified to help career development and improve performance in real time.
  • Saba’s networked people profile combines information from the enterprise business network including community feedback, expertise and content rating, and dynamic network analysis with formal profile elements such as competencies and career interests. The profile information is dynamically updated and accessible via intuitive search capabilities, providing unparalleled insights and transparency into organizational talent.
  • Saba makes it easy for users to access solutions at work and on the road via everyday applications such as enterprise portals, mobile devices, and Microsoft Outlook, within the context of their business process and without the need to log into separate applications.
  • Saba has recently unveiled several new applications that enhance the power of people systems. These new applications include Saba Live for enterprise business networking, Saba Anywhere for on-the-go access to learning content and management of business processes offline, Saba Compensation for compensation management, and Saba Impressions for real-time performance feedback. Saba Impressions was recently recognized as a Top HR Product for 2010 by Human Resource Executive
  • Saba People Systems are delivered in the Cloud and on-premise.


“Collaborative people systems are the next step in talent management platforms,” said Josh Bersin, president, Bersin & Associates, an industry-leading research and advisory services firm based in Oakland, Calif. “Today more than 70% of all buyers tell us they want a single integrated HR platform, yet most have many disparate collaboration tools.

“Saba understands where a business needs HR to be. The Saba solution really speaks to business priorities. In a way, I think Saba has led our thinking and actually allowed us as a business to be even more leading-edge than we ever thought we could be,” said Amanda Jordaan, HR systems strategist

“People systems are the new class of people-centric business applications,” said Bobby Yazdani, chairman and CEO of Saba. “Traditional talent management applications are all about managing transactional performance appraisals and superficially communicating strategy to employees. In today’s connected world, however, it is critical for leading organizations to bring ideas from the bottom up, drive performance of collaborative teams, and foster rapid innovation by connecting expertise to people and leveraging the power of the people network. With Saba People Systems, we are shifting the focus to enabling people across the extended enterprise to work better and work together, thereby strengthening the linkage across strategy, execution, and people.”
