SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Trilibis, the leader in One Web development, is enabling Rewards Network® to position its proprietary dining incentive program, iDine®, for rapid growth in a mobile-centric competitive environment.

The results have been impressive: a significant decrease in site abandonment and bounce rate, mobile visits are up by 66 percent, page views per visit have increased by 68 percent, and there has been a two-fold increase in new mobile member enrollments.

iDine®, Rewards Network's proprietary dining rewards program, offers members rewards for dining at network restaurants. The iDine.com website offers a variety of features perfect for both the avid restaurant goer and the occasional diner. Users can search using various filtering options, in addition to viewing detailed restaurant descriptions featuring menus, hours, reviews, photos and geo-location services. Members who login to access their personal account can view their annual benefits summary, which includes each restaurant visited and the corresponding reward received.

"We had been noticing a steady shift in our audience to mobile devices and were not satisfied with our site usage metrics for mobile visitors. We recognized that it was not easy for our members to access key features they needed to make their dining decisions on the go," said Kara Walsh, chief marketing officer at Rewards Network, which is based in Chicago. "The Trilibis SNOW technology enabled us to quickly add mobile-specific features to the website and to leverage our existing assets. Using one codebase, we can ensure excellent in-browser presentation on a wide range of handsets and tablets."

Rewards Network understood that providing an optimized experience to the growing mobile segment was essential to capture new users and retain current members growing its overall loyalty program business. With PCI compliance and security also being of utmost importance, Rewards Network wanted a solution that could sit behind its firewall and take advantage of its existing back-end architecture, including established APIs.

Trilibis proposed a holistic strategy for both the mobile and tablet web experiences that leveraged its multi-device web development framework, SNOW (Software eNabling One Web). Using SNOW, Trilibis was able to deliver a high-performing site, specifically tailored to Rewards Network's requirements.

SNOW handles all code and layout optimization on the web servers so that only those assets required by the target device are served. This minimizes the size and number of assets sent to the device and reduces page-load time. Additionally, by leveraging SNOW's server-side post processing, Rewards Network's additional security and integration requirements were met. Since SNOW resides at the presentation (or Web server) layer and is independent of the backend integration layer, the development team was able take advantage of the existing unified architecture and associated APIs, accelerating project completion and time to market.

"As our members increasingly use smartphone and tablets to access our websites, it's essential that we deliver the best possible experience for these visitors," added Walsh. "Our SNOW-powered iDine.com mobile website has enabled us to accomplish that quickly. Our members clearly appreciate the enhancements we've made."

Key SNOW benefits

  • Accelerates multi-device development across PC, tablet and mobile—all from a single codebase.
  • Delivers a faster page-load time and better browser performance than existing responsive design techniques.
  • Leverages existing web assets, code and backend integration points to shorten the time to market for any website.
  • Additional server-side intelligence gives developers the ability to fine-tune the user experience by adjusting features, content or layout for specific devices.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
