GS03 Panel: VR for Enterprise, Is Your Company Ready?
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, June 26
While many companies and institutions understand the need to investigate AR/VR (XR), the path to success is a long one. In many cases, there are several disparate teams at a single company looking at ways to leverage this technology, for internal processes as well as customer- and consumer-facing solutions. What is often missing is a cohesive strategy to deploy XR solutions at scale.
This panel discussion will explore ways to effectively bring this vision to fruition, including:
- Identifying the right use cases
- Getting internal buy-in and budget
- Finding development resources and platform partners
- Developing economies of scale across multiple business lines
- Rolling out new AR/VR processes and products
- Integrating into legacy systems
