(ITBusiness)  Mixed reality technologies are finding a home in industry and in the enterprise. AR and VR are a natural response to the explosion of data and the broader concept of digital transformation. As organizations gather intelligence about their operations, there is increasing desire to use that intelligence in effective and efficient means. Documents, spreadsheets, and even analytics dashboards are all examples of old technology being stretched to address new capabilities.
VR and AR, on the other hand, allow for a more intuitive and substantive relationship with data, facilities, and organizations than existing tools. The fields of architecture, construction, and BIM, or Building Information Modeling that have a clear need for representing complex information in smart and accessible ways are already embracing VR and AR. Extraction industries using geoscience data use VR and AR in their drive strive to be surgical and combine both resource efficiency and environmental responsibility.
