- 50 Digerati 50s and 10 C Sweet Readers converge to full virtual reality
- McKinsey’s report shows US $ 5 trillion in Metaverse ecosystems by 2030
“Why so boring, pop,” he said in February of this year when I heard him talking about planning a face-to-face networking session with five people.th A edition of the Digerati 50bienniel publication of DNA will be published in late August.
“What do you mean?” I retort. Face-to-face networking is timeless, and such events are timely, as business leaders are out there and have a growing desire to network, interact, and make new connections.
“But you’re a technical publication. Why not network in virtual reality (VR)? It’s going to be more interesting,” he replied. Hmmm. Food for thought.
May marked the 10th anniversary of DNA since it began publishing, so I thought it was time to do something beyond the limits of technology. In addition, the country wants to establish itself as the heartbeat of digital ASEAN. So why doesn’t Malaysia take the lead in this Metaverse space?
And thanks to Accenture Malaysia recently, Malaysia has already held its first job fair in virtual reality. Career berth It lasted for a month. It wasn’t a completely immersive experience, but the desktop and mobile approach was so practical that Accenture was able to reach as many job seekers as possible in the country.
If you think this is the first application of VR in Malaysia by a large company, think again. As early as 2019, a major Malaysian company was able to build a virtual replica of the platform to show customers around the world how the solution really works.
So, four months ahead of the conversation with Junior, RM50,000 invested in 24 Oculus Quest2 headsets and one HP Reverb2 4K set to build three virtual worlds. One was built from scratch thanks to our partners. Experience design teamKL-based XR agency, four virtual reality majors from Multimedia University participated as internships, Fusionex International As a sponsor, DNA is ready to host the first Digerati 50 Omniverse Networking event on the 5th.th August! Completely immersive!
Fifty Digerati 50s were invited, as well as ten corporate C suite executives, including Manulife Malaysia CIO Bernard Sia, Etiqa Digital CEO Amran Hassan, and VEON Ventures CEO Khairil Abdullah from a new location in Amsterdam. ..
And while this could be Malaysia’s first C-level virtual reality networking event (I’m happy if this isn’t the first), DNA is very excited to host this, but you I can’t find out about the Metaverse economy being the next big thing and the company Malaysia needs to start exploring how Metaverse can play a role in business. It’s up to management consultant McKinsey & Company.
The company said, “Value creation in the Metaverse“This argues that the Metaverse may be an opportunity that is too great to be downplayed.
Preliminary forecasts show that the Metaverse could become a US $ 5 trillion (22 trillion ringgit) worth of ecosystem by 2030. This is only eight years away.
Eric Hazan, McKinsey’s senior partner, said:
This report is useful for businesses of all sizes who may want to investigate the Metaverse, what is the Metaverse, what the innovators are doing, what is driving investment, consumers. It provides an extensive view of the potential of enterprises and B2B enterprises.
There is certainly a huge amount of money invested here (is it a bet?). Already, according to this year’s report, venture capital and private equity firms have invested more than US $ 120 billion in the Metaverse, more than double the US $ 57 billion invested overall last year. Does anyone already feel the beginning of the bubble?
No matter how fast or slow the Metaverse economy develops in Malaysia, the experience that DNA has gained in this first Digerati 50 Omniverse networking plan makes us thinking of hosting our Metaverse gatherings around the world.
