3:50 pm - 5:20 pm Mini Masterclass | Building the Business Case and Justifying ROI in the Adoption of Immersive Technology

For many organisations, the biggest barrier to adoption of immersive technologies is simply about justifying the investments, as it is difficult to predict the financial benefit of using them. Undertaking an immersive technology use case could seem like a tall order for some businesses, considering the fact that it has yet to go mainstream and many people are still learning about the benefits it could offer. How then can organisations build the business case and justify the ROI for immersive technology?
  • Understanding the benefits and realising the full commercial potential of the adoption of immersive technologies
  • Identifying the major issues or problems to be solved within the organisation and breaking them into smaller challenges to be tackled
  • Taking a step-by-step approach in implementing immersive technologies to solve the business case for each of the small challenges – and tying them back to the bigger problem
