The island?

Well, the first thing you should know about Saba is that it is a picturesque island in the Caribbean which is, at about 5 square miles, the smallest special municipality of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Christopher Columbus is said to have sighted Saba on November 13, 1493, but he did not land. The island was later claimed for France, England, and, eventually, the Netherlands. The Netherlands has had continuous possession of the island since 1816.

A software company, actually

Saba is actually a premier provider of people systems including learning management solutions, etc. That’s right. Saba is the name of the software system the Red Cross uses and the company that created  it.

So now you know.
