Saba Software Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
Saba is setting out to redefine talent and design a whole new people experience – with journeys that transcend products and talent modules and in fact converge them to deliver optimized personalization capabilities. This experience designed to address issues: like employers can't find the right skills fast enough, people knowledge is now the largest asset class, transformation requires a whole new level of know-how, people have vastly different needs, preferences, and styles.
Saba has a solid foundation on which to build in order to support the future of work: the talent depth (people expertise and solution mix) to accommodate rapid global/organizational transformation in key areas of talent, and a vision that adapts to people's shifting expectations.
Saba Software Risks and Challenges
With the acquisition of Saba Software in 2020, its changes in leadership will determine the company's strategy and growth for the future.
As Saba's Cloud bookings improved steadily over the past quarters, the vendor appeared to be on a more solid footing after a series of management changes.
The acquisitions of Halogen in 2017 and Lumesse in 2018 have resulted in a number of best-of-breed applications for recruiting, Core HR and talent management. The question is how best to integrate and optimize them with a consistent user experience for a diverse audience.
