SAP and Accenture Collaborate to Create Immersive Experiences, Unlocking New Possibilities for Businesses

By Martin Heinig

Digital technology advancements in augmented and virtual reality as well as in artificial intelligence (AI) over the last decade have provided an incredible ability to capture and hold our collective imaginations. These technologies have transcended beyond the hype by offering immediately clear and convincing use cases for enterprises that bridge the physical and digital divide.

For example, AI-powered digital twins could provide incredible future-focused insights with simulations to anticipate and prevent supply chain disruptions. Employee onboarding could be individually tailored and optimized to deepen human connection in a hybrid world.

Immersive technologies are a broad umbrella that includes extended reality — virtual, augmented, mixed– 3D displays, spatial audio, gesture recognition, spatial sensing, speech recognition, haptics, and the metaverse. With the metaverse projected by Accenture to create a $1 trillion revenue opportunity by the end of 2025, these continuums of experiences and technologies have the potential to shape how customers and employees engage with businesses. That’s why organizations are increasingly turning to SAP and its partners to help them completely transform their business.
