The AREA at EWTS
The sixth annual Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit (EWTS) was recently held in Dallas. The event, produced by AREA member Brainxchange, brings together many of the enterprise AR experts, practitioners and evangelists from around the world.
This year, in my role as Executive Director of the AREA, I was excited to be invited to be asked to moderate two panels:
- Leading Utilities & Energy experts discuss how they’re leveraging AR/VR & wearables
- Ask the Providers, leading solution providers answer your most burning questions
The panels were a great success, both were well attended and the panelists offered real insight and know-how.
The Utilities & Energy experts panel included representatives from leading companies, such as Chevron, Southern Nuclear, Ameren, American Electric Power and Duke Energy.
It was great to hear about the different use cases, returns on investment, and challenges the companies and practitioners have overcome to deliver benefits to their organisations.
The second panel closed day 2 and was slightly different from many of the other panels. This time, the focus was on providers (rather than enterprises). The session allowed for the audience to ask questions to a wide range of provider companies: Circuit Stream, HPE, Iristick, Jujotech, Peregrine and Tobii Pro.
Again, it was a very engaging and wide-ranging conversation focusing on what enterprises need to do to support the deployment of AR solutions. It was great to hear from some of the leading providers of AR technology talk about their approach and engagement with large organisations.
My thanks to the Brainxchange team for allowing the AREA to be part of this excellent event!
