Global Leaders Weigh in on the Metaverse
To understand the potential of the emergent Metaverse — its applications, challenges, risks and opportunities — in October and November 2022, Wipro commissioned a survey of 550 business and technology executives across the US, UK, and Germany. Respondent companies include many industries — retail and consumer goods, financial services, media and entertainment, manufacturing, telecoms, sports and gaming. All survey participants had a significant role in or knowledge of their company’s decision-making approach to the Metaverse.
A resounding message from the survey is that despite recent technology-sector turbulence and market skepticism, the Metaverse is here to stay. And getting there will include investment in complementary technologies like cloud, AI, the Internet of things (IoT), AR/VR, 3D and blockchain. Among those technologies, AR/VR, 3D, and blockchain are the top three emerging technologies incorporated into Metaverse applications.

Metaverse Leaders are Paving the Way
Metaverse leaders will leap-frog their competitors through advanced investment in complementary technologies and digital content, creation of connected offerings, marshaling essential skills and assignment of leadership responsibilities. And they are in a hurry, expecting the Metaverse to become transformational for their business models in less than three years (compared with 6.7 years for other firms). As such, the window of opportunity for early Metaverse adoption may be narrow.
