“With 80 percent of learning on the job done in an informal fashion, organizations must embrace ways that allow for this to naturally occur,” said Laurent Pacalin, SVP and GM of People Cloud Applications. “Saba Social Learning will enable users to connect, interact and collaborate outside of a formal learning environment for increased business performance. Saba Social Learning will provide organizations of all sizes the ability to rapidly on-board new sales employees, maximize the success of product launches and market expansions, and accelerate training and learning.”

“Communications channels have moved away from the ‘one to many’ model and have migrated towards a ‘many to many’ structure. This has radically altered power relationships between learners and instructors. It is also the main reason that learning is now seen as ‘social’ rather than being the result of ‘teaching.'” says Dr. Gary Woodill, CEO and senior analyst of i5 Research.
