Challenges For AR
Create an open and vibrant ecosystem of enterprise solutions with a proven track record of driving significant business ROI and fast time to value (TTV).
Our industry, and indeed the world, is at an incredibly exciting technology inflection point. The virtually limitless computing power of the cloud combined with increasingly intelligent and perceptive devices at the edge of the network create possibilities we could only have dreamed of just a few years ago. When the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge are imbued with mixed reality and artificial intelligence, we have a framework for achieving amazing things and empowering even more people.
Enabling intelligent cloud and intelligent edge solutions requires a new class of distributed, connected applications that will deliver break-through business outcomes. Now, all the pieces are coming together moving us beyond mainframes, PC’s and mobile devices into the fourth wave of computing – Mixed Reality. From construction sites to factory floors, from operating rooms to classrooms, mixed reality powered by AI, the intelligent edge and intelligent cloud are changing how we work, learn, communicate and get things done. We are at the dawn of a new age of computing. One in which the digital world goes beyond two-dimensional screens and enters our three-dimensional world, empowering more people to achieve more, in ways we could only have imagined until now.
