India’s second-largest IT services company, Infosys, has launched a metaverse foundry to foster the development of tech within the metaverse.
The ‘metaverse foundry’ will provide its clients with the on-demand ability to securely and efficiently create their own metaverse environment. It will enable them to deliver experiences in an existing metaverse with advanced AI-powered data analytics and simulations.
“The physical and virtual worlds are already smoothly and ubiquitously interwoven. The metaverse will deepen this overlap and in very experiential ways that will create abundant space for business innovation. We want to help our clients to quickly double down on those opportunities in a find-fast, learn-faster environment before they can reorient their own capabilities, processes, and culture in-house to respond to this rapidly evolving space,” said Ravi Kumar S, President, Infosys.
The company already possesses over 100 ready-to-apply use cases and templates that clients can begin using. The initiative harnesses the power of technologies like augmented reality, virtual reality, blockchain, non-fungible tokens (NFT), internet of things (IoT), applied AI, cybersecurity, and 5G to promote the development of applications for the metaverse.
The metaverse foundry will be an integral part of Infosys Living Labs to promote the digital innovation agenda for enterprises looking to adjust to emerging priorities and market trends. The company also aims to extend its global corporate university, currently functioning on the Infosys Wingspan platform, into the metaverse using the metaverse foundry.
