DXC Technology Advances Deployments of Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality Technologies for Enterprises in the Connected, Digital Workplace
DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) today highlighted how it is helping enterprises accelerate the adoption of augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) technologies to support immersive experiences in ways that can significantly improve productivity, quality and efficiency.
According to Gartner, by 2022, 70% of enterprises will be experimenting with immersive technologies for consumer and enterprise use, and 25% will have deployed them to production.* DXC is using AR, VR and MR technologies today to transform the future of work, and the company is seeing widespread implementation to improve safety, connect remote workers, assist with complex tasks and enhance training and collaboration – all in ways that drive business results and profitability.
“Digital transformation in the workplace is edging towards an inflection point as enterprises are incorporating immersive solutions that connect the real world with the virtual world,” said Maria Pardee, DXC’s senior vice president and general manager, Workplace and Mobility. “DXC is using the power of AR, VR and MR to align the next-generation digital capabilities employees want so they can be more mobile and independent, with the critical security, production prowess and agility that today’s businesses demand.”
DXC Deploys Mixed Reality Employee Training at Water Treatment Leader Ixom
A market leader in water treatment and chemical distribution in Australia and New Zealand, Ixom turned to DXC to develop a custom training and assessment application using mixed reality on Microsoft HoloLens.
In the past, Ixom training and learning assessments were conducted at customer sites, requiring travel, scheduling and employee resources to mitigate safety risks. Now, using DXC’s mixed reality application for Microsoft HoloLens — custom built for Ixom — employees can participate in the required training and learning assessment at any Ixom office or remote location. The resulting increase in flexibility, autonomy and mobility has reduced Ixom travel costs, minimized employee safety risks and essentially eliminated the potential for exposure to hazardous materials during training at treatment facilities.
DXC is named a Leader in Advanced Digital Workplace Services Overall in the NelsonHall Evaluation & Assessment Tool (NEAT) Report 2019. DXC is also an official partner in the Microsoft HoloLens Mixed Reality Partner Program, a status that reflects the company’s commitment to designing, developing and deploying solutions that help customers accelerate their digital transformations using mixed reality technologies.
