The race for Metaverse advantage is heating up. Early this year, Infosys made an announcement of foraying into Metaverse, with the launch of Metaverse Foundry. The message of the intent was clear: Focus on enterprises discovering value in Metaverse with 100+ ready-to-apply use cases and templates. In fact some of the latter’s customers–Tennis Australia, Komatsu, French Tennis Federation–were quick to be mentioned in the testimonial format in the company statement.
Though not a novel idea and been around for ages now, IT giants are focused on this shiny new toy or rather an trillion dollar toy. As people spend more of their precious time in the digital world, they would want to improve their persona out there, build communities, interact and eventually spend money. Grayscale estimates the virtual gaming world revenue to be $400 billion in 2025 up from $180 billion in 2020. And get this, gaming is just one part of the entire Metaverse, which will expand to trillion dollar revenue ticket across #events, advertising, commerce, etc..you name it, you will digitally have it. Though still taking shape, Metaverse will transform the way we interact, close business deals and affect the internet and our lives.
