The Metaverse is becoming a reality – adapt to meet it
Although the term resists single definition, the metaverse can broadly be described as a virtual world where users can meet, work, play, shop and socialize in real-time within simulated scenarios.
The theme has gained traction following Facebook's rebranding to Meta, prompting enterprises to consider how they can seemingly develop economies, trade with other companies, and form alliances in new and imaginative ways as the metaverse use cases and applications grow broader. This is subsequently encouraging businesses across sectors to begin developing capacities related to the metaverse experience, foundation, tools, and user interfaces.
Simultaneously, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the technology adoption rate, thereby increasing the expectations of stakeholders. Amid all such developments, the metaverse is projected to influence multiple sectors with user engagement, collaboration, training, and learning being touted as some of its early use cases.
