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.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
