Microsoft reveals mixed reality tech for the workplace
Today we are incredibly excited to announce two new mixed reality business applications, Microsoft Remote Assist and Microsoft Layout, and these are joining the Microsoft 365 family and available for public previews starting May 22.
With Microsoft Remote Assist First time workers can bring an expert right where they need them.
And they can share what they're seeing.
This is really important because often they don't have the help they need on sight.
They can collaborate to solve problems faster using heads up hands free video calling image sharing and mixed reality annotations.
And the IT administrators, they can count on secure access, secure communications through Microsoft Teams.
And then those experts, they don't have to head out into the field or hop on a plane to solve problems.
This really expedites their troubleshooting, and it eliminates a ton of travel cost.
Now with Microsoft Layout, teams can experience designs at real world context.
They can share and edit those designs in real time.
And they can make better decisions faster.
There are a lot of ways to design spaces right now.
But it's so hard to visualize them in the real world.
At size, scale and context which means the decisions end up taking a lot longer than they should and often costly rework is needed.
But, with Microsoft layout, teams can make decisions that used to take weeks or months, they can often make them in just days.
So you remember those workflows I was talking about at the beginning.
So first we're releasing these two applications against those first two workflows, and soon we'll be sharing more about how we're going to help with training and development and product focus collaboration.
At Thyssenkrupp Aerospace, we partner with the world's leading aerospace companies
To simplify their supply chain management, we have a complex flow of materials in our factory to keep production running smoothly.
Our top priority is keeping people safe and making sure they have access to all the tools and information they need to make better decisions quickly.
Microsoft's mixed reality tools are helping Helping us get there.
As we take on new projects, we need to optimize our workflows.
With Microsoft Layout, we're able to make design changes in our actual factory space with 3-D holograms.
Once we have an optimized workflow, we use spatial analytics to help drive quality improvements.
We're running 24/7 on most saws
So it's expensive to take one off-line.
Spatial analytics listens to our machines and helps to tell us the right time to replace a saw blade, balancing quality with the bottom line.
Integration with teams and Cortana allows our workers to make quick, in context decisions.
That speed up production.
With Microsoft mixed reality tools, we're able to work faster, safer, and at a higher quality than ever before.
We can't wait to scale this across our entire organization.
There's so much possibility.
