Saba is being used throughout our entire organization. We utilize the Saba Learning module only and mainly use it for tracking purposes. Being new to this role, I am still getting used to our organization processes. I hope to soon be able to maximize the use of Saba and take advantage of all or most of the features the learning module has to offer.
  • Tracking.
  • Saba community is very helpful.
  • Testing abilities.
  • Making the system a little more user-friendly.
  • Background settings easier to understand and customize.
Saba makes the process of enrolling into a course fairly simple. Most end users do not seem to have trouble when trying to find a course. However, as the system admin, sometimes I find certain simple tasks to be more challenging due to how certain things are set up in the background.

  • The ability to track our learning assignments for each user is a huge benefit.
  • Providing employees a hub for active learning.
  • Ease of use for the end user.
SAP SuccessFactors was the first LMS platform that I have ever used. The main difference I saw right away between the two platforms is how Saba allows the customer to customize their home page very thoroughly. I think that this is a great feature! SuccessFactors did not have that in-depth of a customization home page. SuccessFactors also seemed perhaps even more confusing to use for the admin. The wording was weird for a lot of the settings. Saba seems to be a little more interactive overall for both the end-user and admin.

I have only used Saba Service on Demand and the online community. However, I was very pleased with my experience overall. The online community is always at my fingertips and has helped me in numerous situations. Support on demand has always been very responsive (we are paying for it so this is how it should be) and very knowledgeable for the most part!

I gave this rating because the usability between the end-user and the admin is quite different. I feel that the system is much easier to use as the end user than it is for the admin. If things became a little more simple or straightforward for the admin, I would give it a higher rating.

Our company uses Saba TalentSpace for performance development and learning. The system is managed by Human Resources and utilized by every employee.
  • Captures feedback; available to pull feedback into performance reviews
  • Tracks goals and progress toward completion in an easy-to-use/read format
  • Accessing learning activities is not easy/straightforward. From your homepage, you click on the task, it opens up learning activity detail, then you click OK. Then it takes you to your task list where you hit play. Would be more convenient if you could launch the activity from the homepage.
  • Goals: setting status and selecting on track, at risk, etc., seems redundant.
There aren't a lot customization options.

  • 33% of managers have reported an increase in team engagement and connectivity after switching to monthly or quarterly 1:1 performance reviews.
Saba Cloud was a better fit for our company's size and budget.
Support is always prompt and helpful.
The system isn't quite as intuitive as other talent management systems I've used. Saba requires lots of clicks to reach the desired information.
  • providing feedback is a breeze!
  • accessing and registering for learning activities
Yes, but I don't use it

We use Saba Cloud as a shared services provider for 2 organizations, currently, and expect expansion. Our challenge includes frequently changing requirements.
  • Flexibility
  • Content Interoperability
  • Regulatory compliance for OJT (Ability to mark checklist complete if items are not complete - not acceptable for regulatory)
  • Language consistency within itself
  • More user-friendly and real-world settings/behaviors for security privileges and curriculum.
If an organization has extensive knowledge of its HR and foundational data has intermediate operational/access knowledge, this product would provide an extensive return on centralization and mobilization.

Too many touches and lack of support team understanding of the issue.

Almost never.
Primarily from Caitlyn Bigsby prior to our hand off. Also, had one support rep who coordinated calls in our time zone (very helpful to discuss by phone) and she was excellent at following through to resolution. I apologize that it has been several months and I don't remember her name.

It is used for all learning courses, soft skills, technical, and domain categories. It is used by all the participants. It address the new learning areas and we can find the new skills courses.
  • Soft skills are more [than alternatives].
  • Technical elearnings are good.
  • Some feedback reviews on the trainings.
  • Few help tips on the assessment-wise improvements areas, giving personal feedback.
  • Looking for few more domain trainings, healthcare solutions, payment gateway, credit analysis, banking analysis, and commercial bankings courses.
For technical it is good, but in terms of Domain, I am looking for more improvement. Soft skills are fine.
  • Good.
  • Costwise, small organizations cannot buy this for their trainings. Why can't we come up with small packages, like other LMS platforms, to spread across the world?
Looking for new kind of courses, specifically in the enterprise model, is good to have. In terms of reports it generates, Saba is good, rather than going for the Zoho Reports, where we have to make every thing by hand.
