Few talk about it except among the experts, but virtual reality and augmented reality seem to really have a very promising future in business.
According to a reasearch of Capgemini entitled “Augmented and virtual reality operations: a guide for investments” (which you can download here), 82% of companies that already use these technologies claim to have found benefits equal to or higher than expected.
Capgemini: efficiency grows with VR and AR
Capgemini research signals significant benefits in terms of greater efficiency and greater productivity, as well as the reduction of complexity and greater security of operations.
Benefits that seem to interest, albeit with different degrees of intensity, both the automotive sector and the manufacturing sector in general as well as public utilities.
Those who do not use it think to do it within 5 years
Not only: 50% of companies that have not yet implemented these technologies plans to start exploring their potential within its own operations within the next three years.
Added to this is that 46% of respondents believe that these technologies will be widely used by their companies within the next three years, while 38% say that their implementation will be established from 3 to the next 5 years.
Skills shortage slows down VR and AR adoption
In short: if three years ago, companies wondered what AR / VR technologies could do and how they could exploit them, currently the question arises in terms of Roi (return on investment) and speed with which the software will be developed.
Rather, point out Capgemini analysts, now there is a lack of internal expertise and a lack of sufficient back-end infrastructure that still represent strong barriers to growth.
A key role will have internal influencers
The conclusion of the analysts is that companies wishing to start or continue their journey in virtual and augmented reality, until a wider adoption of this technology is achieved having a key internal influencer can lead to greater awareness of the potential benefits of AR / VR technologies.
As if to say that it could be a type of work just waiting for someone to come forward to do it.
