Morf Media Launches Gamified Intelligent Learning System for Large Enterprises

First Fully-Interactive, Immersive Solution for Corporate Training

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Morf Media today launched its Gamified Intelligent Learning System, the first fully-interactive, immersive solution for corporate training. This advanced solution for corporate training provides much more in depth understanding of critical topics that are currently taught via other learning systems, Powerpoint or Word documents in classroom settings.

The Gamified Intelligent Learning System (GILS™) uses advanced game theory and artificial intelligence to enable employees to enter virtual worlds where they can progress through work simulations to better learn and interact with others as they create and execute strategies and perform complex tasks. Based on a highly scalable SaaS platform, GILS is available anytime, anywhere, delivering the same immersive experience on smartphones, tablets and desktops.

Corporate America will be first to take advantage of super-human skilled employees that can drive dramatic performance gains using Morf Media's new platform technology.

"Traditional classroom techniques are a turn-off for most employees," said Eduardo Cervantes, Morf Media's CEO. "Many say it is boring, and they worry they are missing work and may fail in front of colleagues. Employers find it costly and often ineffectual. The Gamified Intelligent Learning System is a radically new and innovative approach, fully engaging employees by making participation enjoyable and rewarding. At the same time the system reports behavioral performance and allows corporations to ensure they meet training requirements while maximizing cost effectiveness."

Research shows that inadequate training costs businesses billions in revenue each year from lost productivity.* Enterprises in regulated industries may face additional costs if they can't show they have met legally mandated training.

"The average gamer today is 35 years old today, with 47% of them being women," said gamification lecturer and board member Yu-kai Chou, creator of the dominant gamification design framework Octalysis. "Everyone has the capacity to enjoy games if they serve a productive purpose. Gamification uses the same behavioral economics and motivational psychology techniques that entice people to play and applies them to non-game scenarios, making them fun, appealing, even obsessive. Morf Media's GILS represents one the industry's most complete implementation of gamification principles to date. It utilizes state-of-the-art game design, social mechanics, behavioral science and deep artificial intelligence to form a highly innovative and effective training solution."

GILS is a modular framework designed for ready extensibility across industries. The first two modules, developed for hospitality and finance, these are based on award-winning gamification projects Morf has already delivered for global brands such as Deutsche Telekom, Fairmont Hotels, and Sofitel.

Based on Morf's own patented AI technology, a GILS virtual world can be easily adapted for any industry, whether healthcare, energy exploration, aviation or retail. GILS integrates with Microsoft's Active Directory as well as with popular customer resource management software such as Safesforce.com, and with human resources management systems such as Oracle, SAP, PeopleSoft and Sage, ensuring its integration with an enterprise's existing infrastructure.

GILS is available immediately.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

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.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
