Mzinga – A Leader in the Aragon Research Globe for Corporate Learning 2016
Mzinga doubles down on mobile collaborative video learning
Burlington, MA – Mar 7, 2016 – Aragon Research (http://www.aragonresearch.com), a leading technology research and advisory firm, has identified Mzinga’s OmniSocial® Learning platform as a Leader in its just published Aragon Research Globe™ for Corporate Learning. Mzinga (http://www.mzinga.com) is a leading provider of enterprise social software solutions and services targeting the social learning, marketing and support markets for employees, customers and partners.
The Aragon Research Globe™ for Corporate Learning examines 23 providers. “The Globe™ evaluates technology and service providers that allow an enterprise to manage and deliver all forms of learning. Video is at the head of the pack in user demand, as is a modern user experience. “The vendors with the best strategies understand this and have been doing makeovers of their offerings to support the social, mobile and video experience that users want,” said Jim Lundy, Founder and CEO of Aragon. Lundy continued “Mobile is about mobile first – Video Learning on Mobile Devices is one of the fastest ways to gain traction with business users.”
In the Globe Mzinga was recognized for Social and Collaborative learning, easy Integration with content, configurability to support multiple distinct learning environments, and E-commerce capabilities for internal and extended enterprises. Most notably, Mzinga’s new focus on video was highlighted.
“We’ve taken a dramatic step towards embracing the key concepts in the Aragon Globe. The Mzinga Learning Record Store (LRS) supports the Experience API (xAPI) which allows organizations to track a wide variety of learning experiences that their employees, customers and partners want and need, in a format that’s engaging and exciting. Additionally Mzinga recently launched TWIL. TWIL stands for This Week I Learned. It is a subscription based mobile app and web portal that allows teams of any size to record videos and related content, share them with their team, solicit feedback and questions, and collaborate.”
“Whether your organization has a traditional learning infrastructure or not, your employees, colleagues, and teammates have a need to share what they know, and learn from one another. Informal learning takes place today at the water cooler, on the drive back from the job site, and at the airport after an important sales call. Mobile enabled video makes this a reality for distributed teams of any size. For the first time you’ll be able to empower your team and provide a platform that enables true knowledge sharing and retention,” said Mike Merriman, CMO at Mzinga. “We’re thrilled to be recognized for our leadership position in this new mobile video marketplace.”
