The Impact of AR/VR in Enterprise
A short opinion piece appeared on CIOReview.com this week stating the importance and impact of emerging technologies in the enterprise, including Augmented Reality.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have been around for some time now and are slowly finding their way into many industries. They have fundamentally changed the way we work and how enterprises do business.
AR and VR will very soon become important tools of a number of different industry types that want to find new and innovative ways to make their products more desirable and build more future-oriented enterprises. An area where AR and VR will have the most impact will be healthcare. A higher success rate of surgeries and improvements in quality of care are just some of the advantages of using AR and VR in this industry. As precision is the most important thing when performing surgery, surgeons can be more precise with the help of 3D visualizations of the area of surgery in real-time, bolstering the rate of success. Construction is another area where AR is expected to have a big role to play in enhancing the workflows of businesses. Imagine construction companies that provide floor-by-floor 3D plans of buildings before construction is even started. This would give customers a sense of what the buildings will look like upon completion.
The inevitable linking of AI and AR/VR will open new doors for further innovation. This will help enterprises take advantage of new applications and enriched experiences to enhance their business processes beyond what was thought impossible only a few years prior.
