    Corporate Travel, Communications Made Easier with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

    One of the drivers of unified communications (UC) is the ability to reduce travel. Virtual reality and augmented reality have the same value proposition: Why spend the time and money on the road when the same goals can be accomplished from the office?

    The difference is that VR and AR expand greatly on what UC can do alone. Science Alert points to Microsoft's goal of holoportation with HoloLens: "So if you're having a business meeting, for example, remote staff members can appear in the same room together…" The technology can also enable a "visit" with grandma.

Augmented reality and virtual reality technology have an almost limitless potential. They can start new categories – holographic meetings, anyone? – or add a new dimension to established categories. Indeed, these two platforms, which share much underlying technology, join the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence as technologies that excite the imagination of manufacturers, entrepreneurs, investors and, most of all, end users.

Many companies are trying to answer the question of what to do with AR and VR. They've already come up with a tremendous amount of good answers, and will create more in the future. This slideshow offers a taste of what experts in this exciting field are thinking about in the realm of enterprise virtual reality and enterprise augmented reality.
