Saba Discovery Delivers Learning Without Boundaries

New Learning Record Store (LRS) offering extends Saba's Learning platform to connect the dots between informal and formal learning, employee performance, and business success

REDWOOD SHORES, CA, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Saba, a global leader in cloud-based intelligent talent management solutions, today announced the availability of Saba Discovery, which includes a learning record store (LRS) and learning bookmarklet to help organizations embrace and incorporate their employees' informal learning experiences and activities as part of its strategic approach to learning and development.

Saba Discovery gives companies the ability to collect, track, manage, recognize and analyze their employees' informal learning activities – from podcasts, to blogs, to online videos – alongside formal learning and training, and measure organizational impact.

"Information on any topic or skill is literally a click away for an employee with a smart phone and that's how they're learning more often than not," said David Wentworth, Principal Learning Analyst, Brandon Hall. "The question for talent leaders is how do you manage and track this type of informal learning without destroying what makes it so effective. With Saba Discovery you're still able to harness the engagement, agility, and collaboration informal learning fosters for your employees, while at the same time ensuring relevance and connecting it employee and business performance."

Saba Discovery connects formal and informal learning by:

1. Enabling learning discovery: Employees can use the Saba Bookmarklet in their browser to share any external learning content socially, add it to their personal bookmark folder, or save it to the learning record store (LRS) within Saba Discovery.

2. Encouraging social sharing and community building: Once the content is saved to the LRS within Saba Discovery, these resources can be organized, shared, rated and followed by other employees and teams from within the Saba Learning platform. Employees get credit and recognition for the information they sourced, providing valuable insight back to the system about where they found helpful information. 

3. Providing insight into learning trends and analytics: Unlike other LMS and LRS learning combinations, Saba Discovery tracks any type of learning resource that employees find and share, regardless of whether it is deemed "completed". All employer-directed or employee-discovered learning activities and experiences are accessible through Saba Analytics, offering talent and business leaders key insights into the learning and development that makes a difference in their organizational and operational performance.

"Saba Discovery puts employee development front and center, offering them the ability to be recognized for their learning experiences whenever and wherever they happen," said John Hiraoka, Chief Strategy Officer at Saba. "Not only does Saba help organizations foster that last mile of personalized learning with their employees, but it also provides the insight, measurement, and tracking in one platform that talent leaders need to assess the business and operational impact of informal and formal learning."

Media and analysts attending the SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition from June 18-21 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans can visit booth #1521 to view a demonstration of Saba Discovery and experience the latest solutions from Saba for driving employee performance, learning, and engagement.

You know you need the cloud, but you're hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You're looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you're concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies. What do you do?
