Recently I was able to acquire an Oculus Quest. I must admit I have never been much of a fan with Virtual / Augmented Reality myself. This perspective certainly changed now that worldwide IT conferences are being cancelled left and right with most enterprises requesting their employees to work from home.
One of the coolest apps that I have tried is the ability to enter a virtual movie theater where the audience can interact, throwing popcorn, soda, and even have a conversation with one another through a form of a avatar. With the media claiming the current epidemic we are dealing with could be the end of future physical expos and conventions, no doubt there is a potential demand for going to work without even leaving your home.
Believe it or not, the Customer Facing, People Augmented, and Consumable seem to be quite important now given the situation we are in. While my point of bringing up VR is only one out of many viable options to address such a challenge, it demonstrates the importance of considering these hallmarks of Enterprise Business Capabilities. We don’t know when another epidemic would come, but these capabilities will help your business to be more resilient and well prepared for the next one.
