Mzinga is highlighted as a Contender in the Aragon Research Globe for Corporate Social Software 2016

Mzinga’s focus on video collaboration evolves from a legacy of learning

Burlington, MA – Sept 23, 2016 – Aragon Research (http://www.aragonresearch.com), a leading technology research and advisory firm, has identified Mzinga’s OmniSocial® Learning & Engaged platforms in its just published Aragon Research Globe™ for Corporate Social Software.  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.

This Aragon Research Globe™ for social software evaluates 21 Enterprise Social Network (ESN) providers who each focus on the core problem of sharing knowledge. The market for ESNs is shifting to focus on Work Platforms, as buyers look to consolidate the rising tide of work tools.  “While the demand for video content is growing, the frequent problem is that video repositories are often separate from the ESN. When an enterprise needs to share knowledge, the software category that most closely resembles a Knowledge Network is the Enterprise Social Network. This is why we feel that more ESN providers need to fully support access to Video,” said Jim Lundy, Founder and CEO of Aragon.

In the Globe, Mzinga was recognized for Video Learning and Collaboration, Content Moderation Services, and support for external audiences.

“Mzinga is focused on evolving our technology to meet the needs of our customers.  We continue to invest in video collaboration to support learning, communication and collaboration for numerous use cases,” said Mike Merriman, CMO at Mzinga.  “We’re thrilled to be recognized yet again for our innovations in this evolving marketplace.”

Mzinga is named a Hot Vendor in Learning by Aragon Research for TWIL

Mzinga focuses on mobile collaborative video learning

Burlington, MA – Aug 18, 2016 – Aragon Research (http://www.aragonresearch.com), a leading technology research and advisory firm, has identified Mzinga as a Hot Vendor in Learning with our new Mobile Video Learning platform – TWIL.  Mzinga (http://www.mzinga.com) is a leading provider of learning technologies and social media solutions for companies and organizations worldwide.

Each year, Aragon Research selects Hot Vendors across multiple markets that are doing something truly new or different. They may have new technology that expands capabilities, a new strategy that opens up markets, or just a new way of doing business that makes them worth evaluating.

This 2016 Hot Vendor report highlights a new emphasis in learning primarily due to the exploding demand for mobile video content aimed at employees as well as customers.  “Mzinga has invested heavily in social learning over the years.  As the demand for mobile video learning has increased, we chose to launch TWIL.  TWIL stands for This Week I Learned.  It is a 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,” said Mike Merriman, CMO at Mzinga.   “We’re thrilled to be recognized as a Hot Vendor in this new mobile video marketplace.”

“What makes TWIL hot is the ease with which users can upload and share Videos and other content. TWIL is secure and shares information exclusively within the company. Users can comment, ask questions, and collaborate directly on TWIL’s Video learning platform,” reports Jim Lundy, CEO of Aragon Research.

TWIL can also be used in conjunction with other learning environments by leveraging The Mzinga Learning Record Store (LRS) and the Experience API (xAPI).  This 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.
