About the Event

ENTERPRISE METAVERSE: Enabling Business Growth Opportunities The metaverse enables productivity in the enterprise. Is your organization ready for a digital and immersive environment that replicates and connects every aspect of your operational processes to optimize experiences and decision making? The world is ready and your business too! The journey toward the enterprise metaverse, while still aspirational, has already begun with the development of the engines that will power it. Organizations are set to look dramatically different in coming decades. We envision a world where the lines between physical and digital environments blur. Every asset, process, or person within and related to an enterprise will be replicated virtually—and connected. As a result, nearly every aspect of work can take place solely digitally or, at the least, before it does so physically. Immersive experiences, enabled by augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), will allow employees to gain real-world product design experience and training from their desks as they manipulate 3-D digital replicas of equipment. Mass simulations and AI technologies will use data streams from across and beyond the enterprise to help senior executives predict what’s next with tremendous precision and prescribe the best course of action in even the most turbulent of times. The Metaverse is at the forefront of the Web 3.0 internet evolution. Related crypto cloud economies are becoming the next emerging frontier. The Metaverse is a set of interconnected, experiential, 3D virtual worlds where people anywhere can socialize in real-time to form a persistent, user-owned, internet economy spanning the digital and physical worlds. The Metaverse is still emerging, but many key components have started to take shape and are revolutionizing everything from e-commerce to media & entertainment, and even real estate. As we look ahead, a hybrid work environment will likely be with us in some form, and as a result, multithreaded work streams will be required to ensure productivity regardless of location. In order to help people be productive, you have to understand who they are and how they work. But it’s not just about location; context switching is helpful for workers who have to manage concurrent work streams with co-workers, partners, customers and other stakeholders. Metaverse platforms provide a way to maintain that productivity while understanding that most employees have grown accustomed to a blend of consumer and enterprise tech—which has become part of their daily routine due to blended work-home environments. Hybrid workplaces are now also defined by the combination of consumer and enterprise tools that populate them, stretching their tasks across business and consumer environments. This means ensuring efficiency via process-oriented tools that leverage the metaverse and securing underlying systems become critical components of supporting global-scale organizations.
