  • The content industry is extremely diverse and fragmented. We get questions from our customers as to which content to recommend. Intent of Saba Content Connect is to create a showcase of our content partners to our customers community. We hope that over time this will become viral and content will be ranked and rated by customers to customers, just like Yelp. Interested customers can connect directly with the partner.
