In the new world of work, businesses need solutions to help them create a more transparent, better connected and highly collaborative way of working. If they want to become more agile and competitive – and more responsive to changing market demands – evolving and becoming a transformative organization is a must.
Today, we’ve unveiled a number of new offerings designed to support (and help hasten) the essential transformation to the Social enterprise. One of these new offerings, Saba People Cloud, is the first Social enterprise platform to provide a unified enterprise people profile. It allows organizations to engage, develop and inspire all the people they work with – coworkers, partners, suppliers and customers.
The Saba People Cloud combines the formal profile from a system of record such as a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) and Learning Management System (LMS) with a Social profile and analytics. The result: complete visibility into an organization’s entire people network. Additionally, every employee in the organization earns a People Quotient (pQ) score. The pQ measurement allows employees to monitor their influence, reputation and overall impact on the organization in real time and proactively make improvements. The core purpose of the pQ is to empower workers to create positive change for themselves – while making the business stronger… And we’re not surprised to see that it’s already raising some eyebrows.
Saba Meeting, which we also announced today, is our unified Social, Mobile and video unified collaboration platform – another industry first. It allows users to view high-definition video across webinars, virtual meetings or classrooms on any device – without dragging down the organization’s bandwidth. Capabilities such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and IM chat help to deepen or extend real-time collaboration around virtual meetings.
Our other big news: Not only have we made significant enhancements to our Talent Management Suite – including succession planning capabilities that allow managers to effectively identify future leaders in the organization and build bench strength in critical positions – we’ve announced our intention to acquire HumanConcepts. This will greatly increase our presence in the talent management market, and help us extend the capabilities of our Talent Management Suite even further.
Lastly, we have also continued to innovate and lead the market in Learning, announcing the industry’s most Advanced Learning Suite. This unifies Learning Management System (LMS), Social Learning, virtual classroom, content authoring and management; testing and assessment, and Mobile Learning. It is accessible anywhere, anytime on Mobile devices and not only supports employees but also the entire extended global enterprise, such as partners, suppliers and customers.
We believe that these offerings will help today’s organizations take the next critical step toward becoming innovative, more competitive and more Social enterprises – putting people, and not information, at the center of the organization.
