Software leader AVEVA already has more than 100,000 physical sites using its solutions, giving it a head start on building the industrial metaverse. Here, AVEVA’s Global Head of Research, Simon Bennett, offers a primer on this new technology and the industrial metaverse.
Paradigm shifts in the way we use technology are coming thick and fast, as recent developments around artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality, and cloud computing show. We’re adopting and adapting to these advances almost equally quickly – if the way we use video conferences in our now-hybrid workplaces is any indication.
Already on the horizon – and in development – is the industrial metaverse. It’s the logical next step as our physical and virtual worlds blend in new ways. As more applications are built around Web3 and the metaverse, businesses will come closer than ever to a truly hybrid reality environment.
What is the Industrial Metaverse?
The industrial metaverse is a persistent virtual environment enabling multiple teams to collaborate in real time across any device. Moreover, everyone within the industrial metaverse will have access to the full gamut of up-to-date operations and engineering data streams.
What does the Metaverse Mean for Industry and What Will it Cost?
The industrial metaverse builds on technology already in use today. It takes the form of a natural layer that organizations can deploy on top of their existing digital infrastructure to future-proof their businesses.
