Many Microsoft servers and Cisco networking topics are covered which suits me best. Some IT topics are not covered as opposed to other training platforms. Things that require a hands-on lab can be difficult to simulate as well.

Cons

CBT Nuggets

  • Because it is on-demand, it's difficult to carve out time to dedicate to training.
  • I've had trouble with following along with some of the lab exercises.
  • It's rare, but videos can freeze up. You'll need to close the tab and start over.
Curt Sminkey | TrustRadius Reviewer

Saba Cloud

  • Simplify the creation of a learning event. Right now, it seems to be over-engineered, which might work for some organizations, but is not great for our organization.
  • Minor tweaks with goal management, such as being able to copy goals from one employee to another, or for a goal assigned to multiple individuals, the ability to make a change to one individual, and the change carries over to the other individuals.

The only reason I wouldn't rate this a 10 is because we always want to evaluate the technology we use to drive our business. While Saba would be the "leader in the clubhouse", we would still perform our due diligence when it's time to renew.

As someone who creates classes and is also a learning administrator in the system, I have run into some issues with the system's capabilities for my needs. I am not a fan of having to use Adobe Captivate to download a PowerPoint presentation into the system, as my training sessions are much more than a glorified PowerPoint. Our organization has yet to turn on Saba Meetings, which may help with these limitations.

For the times that we have used the support provided by Saba, it has been a very pleasurable experience for our department. Part of our package with Saba includes a specified number of hours of "training" time with Saba. During these meetings, we have shared our desires of the product and the support personnel have either shown us how to accomplish our task or they have taken our requests to their developers to look at future enhancements. Overall, very pleased with the support.

Alternatives Considered

CBT Nuggets

While you don't get the live instructor that you get with some other solutions, I've found the videos to be extremely helpful. If something is unclear, usually going back to re-watch clears things up for me. I like to get my hands in lots of server and networking functions and CBT Nuggets is great for both.
Curt Sminkey | TrustRadius Reviewer

Saba Cloud

We had extensive reviews with a plan of what we needed and must have out of the system, including custom learning paths and tracking inside our HRIS system to grant permissions and positions based on completed learning certifications and courses. We weighed each option and chose based on the one that met the most of the must-haves.

Return on Investment

CBT Nuggets

  • Training is always an important goal each year but always the first to be cut from the budget. This is a cheaper alternative and can offer more than a single course.
  • We don't need to send someone away for an entire week for training, it can be viewed any time.
Curt Sminkey | TrustRadius Reviewer

Saba Cloud

  • We were able to get Saba's entire Talent Cloud for the cost of our last LMS. That meant we were able to implement performance management for no additional licensing costs.
  • There's no doubt that any organization burdened with compliance requirements needs an LMS. Saba has all the bells and whistles needed.
