DXC Technology identifies five ways the Metaverse will transform lives and work over the next five years

LONDON, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ – Immersive technology trends will revolutionize the way we work and live

DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), one of the world’s leading Fortune 500 technology services companies, has unveiled five ways the metaverse will impact lives and economies over the next five years.

1. Workplace collaboration will never be the same

Around the world, the metaverse will be part of the daily working life of an increasing number of workers. Instead of staring at a two-dimensional grid of faces on a video conferencing screen, colleagues will be able to choose their seat at a virtual table, leave the room for a break, and even take a virtual walk with their boss.

To maximize the benefits, many organizations are already combining traditional video conferencing with immersive collaboration technologies. DXC has seen the positive impact of its own private virtual world: increased employee productivity, engagement and creativity.

“Metaverse experiences help employees focus better and retain more information. Virtual worlds can help us break out of our video conferencing routine and open the door to more collaboration and innovation,” said Nathalie Vancluysen, Head of Extended Reality at DXC Technology.

2. Major professional events will take place virtually

The Metaverse is a place where thousands of avatars from around the world can come together to interact, get to know each other, and contribute. Custom 3D avatars, controlled by people from the comfort of their chosen location, can move freely through near-infinite space, teleporting from place to place in an instant. In the future, more and more major events such as conferences, exhibitions and summits will be held in these virtual worlds, enabling better global collaboration and reducing the time, resources and carbon footprint of travel.

3. Bands, DJs, sports clubs and dating agencies will move to the metaverse

More and more individuals and organizations in the music and sports industries are asking their fans to move from virtual seats to virtual halls, bringing the excitement and excitement of concerts and sporting events to their homes. Additionally, some dating apps like Nevermet and Flirtual already offer services in the Metaverse. Over the next five years, consumers will be offered more and more interactive and immersive ways to do the things they love to do in the physical world – through their digital avatar.

4. Branded companies will express themselves in new ways

Virtual customer experiences will become commonplace as brands look for exciting new ways to engage with their customers. Major retail brands such as Louis Vuitton, Adidas, Gucci, Coke and Nike, as well as car manufacturers such as Nissan, Toyota and Ferrari are already experimenting with virtual environments and augmented reality. DXC expects that over the next five years, more and more brand companies will offer their customers the opportunity to explore their brands, solutions and services in 3D – from hotels to cities to airports.

5. Recruitment and onboarding will be redesigned

Recruiting new employees is a key success factor for any business and targeting the right candidates is the first step. Over the next five years, companies will increasingly turn to the metaverse to connect with candidates in engaging and engaging ways. The metaverse can also be useful for inclusion. Conducting interviews in the Metaverse can help recruiters identify candidates with the right behavioral profile, not just those with the right resume dates or appearances.

“Individuals and companies are opening up to the possibility of using the metaverse for daily activities, concludes Nathalie Vancluysen. Many of today’s young adults grew up socializing and playing online, so companies, government agencies and brands in the power to target them with familiar and interesting products and services.”
