International Data Corporation (IDC) today published an IDC Innovators report profiling four companies that provide augmented reality (AR) platforms for enterprise use. The four companies are: Atheer, Scope AR, Ubimax, and Upskill.
Augmented reality overlays digital information or objects within a person’s current view of reality. The included companies provide AR enterprise platforms that enable customers to use either mobile devices (such as smart phones and tablets) or smart glasses and head-mounted displays (HMDs). Capabilities can include see-what-I-see video conferencing, digital instructions, real-time data access, knowledge capture, knowledge transfer, and more. A key component of any AR enterprise platform is its ability to keep a company’s data safe and secure.

Commercial organizations are looking for AR enterprise platforms to help drive new business processes, smooth virtual collaboration, train new employees, and enable front-line workers. The recent challenges around COVID-19 have caused many companies to accelerate their plans around AR enterprise platforms.
“As more companies move aggressively to leverage augmented reality to drive increased process efficiency, leverage remote workers, and facilitate faster knowledge capture and transfer, the role of the AR platform has become increasingly important,” said Tom Mainelli, group vice president of Device and Consumer research at IDC. “Companies want a platform that brings together multiple capabilities that also ensures data remains secure.”
