Saba Positioned as Strategic Leader in 2015 Elearnity 9-Grid™ for Learning Management Systems

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - January 28, 2015) - Saba (OTC PINK: SABA), a global leader in cloud-based intelligent talent management solutions, today announced that its solution, Saba Cloud, has been positioned as a 'Strategic Leader' in Elearnity's 9-Grid for Learning Management Systems. Elearnity, a leading European analyst firm, released its 2015 market analysis in connection with the Learning Technologies Exhibition and Conference here this week.

Over the last 12 months Saba has moved from a Strategic Challenger to the Strategic Leader position in this report. In addition, Elearnity has rated Saba's 'Total Cost of Ownership' at the mid-level, reflecting lower costs for the customer to acquire, implement and run Saba Cloud.

A full copy of the report can be accessed from the Elearnity website. http://www.elearnity.com/downloads/9-grid/9GridSLMS0115.pdf.

Shawn Farshchi, Saba's CEO and President, said, "Our investment in Saba Cloud, coupled with our fast implementation methodology and new customer success team, is helping our customers realize the benefits of intelligent talent management to support their learning and talent requirements. Their success is our best reward; and the latest Elearnity 9-Grid ranking further reflects a higher level of engagement, development and productivity possible with Saba Cloud."

About the Elearnity 9-Grid
The Elearnity 9-Grid analysis model is based on the results of extensive independent research and deep insights from Elearnity's corporate research network of over 150 client organizations across the UK and Europe. Elearnity 9-Grid was originally created because of the limited value to European companies of US-centric market analysis. Elearnity is unique in assessing vendors and solutions with a European market perspective, and from providing independent advice to large multi-national clients based in EMEA.

The 9-Grid analysis is also uniquely designed for HR and Learning Professionals rather than IT. It uses the familiar framework of the nine box talent profile, but applied to solutions instead of people. The analysis captures five levels of insight into a vendor's position in the market, including their Performance, Potential, and Market Presence, but also uniquely, Total Cost of Ownership and Elearnity's expectations about their 9-Grid Trajectory in the future. This enables corporations to match potential solutions to their own specific context and priorities, as well as forcing a real debate about cost versus sophistication.
