INDUSTRY REPORT: SHORT-TERM OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENTERPRISE IN VIRTUAL REALITY, LONG-TERM IN AUGMENTED REALITY
“Future Projections for Immersive Enterprise Technologies, Plus Current Use Cases from Intel, McLaren & Heatherwick Studios”
As immersive technologies like virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) take time to reach mass consumer adoption, industries such as architecture, automotive, retail and manufacturing are seeing huge impacts to business performance.
VR Intelligence has teamed up with research company, SuperData and the UK Department of International Trade, to produce a white paper report on the rise of VR, AR and MR (mixed reality) in enterprise and the workplace, in the lead up to VRX 2017 in San Francisco this December.
The report shows that demand for VR solutions in enterprise is soaring – particularly in healthcare, education, manufacturing, AEC and retail and is making up over 70% of immersive tech investments in R&D. But as use of VR will continue to rise through 2020, projections suggest AR and MR will make an even bigger push.
In looking to the future, the paper also provides current day use cases with interviews with three leading industry experts, from Intel, McLaren and Heatherwick Studios; talking about how they’re implementing these technologies to transform the way they work and communicate in healthcare, education, automotive, architecture and beyond.
The full, free report has been produced in conjunction with VRX 2017 and can be downloaded from here: http://1.vr-intelligence.com/LP=18545
“A year ago, VR was perhaps perceived as more of a novelty that we were experimenting with. Now, the
exec team and the directors at McLaren can see that VR has become a fundamental part of the design process; and at the other end of the vehicle design journey, a great customer experience too.” Mark Roberts, McLaren
“We started using VR first as a presentation tool for our clients. However, quite quickly we realized that we could use it in our design process.” Ondrej Tichy, Heatherwick Studios
“Augmented reality is going to mature and be a big component of the business landscape eventually.” Frank Soqui, Intel
