Enabling Remote Collaboration Through AR/VR and Metaverse in Europe
This IDC Market Perspective analyzes the state of XR-enabled collaboration in Europe, providing advice to IT vendors in the remote collaboration and workforce transformation space. The study delves into key factors pushing investments in remote collaboration solutions in the past couple of years and in the future. It also reviews key augmented reality and virtual reality products available in Europe. The report also analyzes the role of the metaverse in enabling remote collaboration, covers key use cases, and examines barriers that might slow down adoption.
"The concept of location is changing across many European companies, and with hybrid environments in which physical office presence coexists with remote working, the need to introduce solutions that enable remote collaboration is more important than ever. Enterprises are buying collaborative solutions not only to adjust to the new hybrid culture, but also to connect employees regardless of their location and ensure productivity. AR and VR are moving in this direction as we're witnessing strong investment growth across the commercial segment, especially with many companies trying to build the blocks for the metaverse," said Andrea Minonne, research manager and lead of human augmentation research, IDC U.K.
