Infosys Enters Into Metaverse by Launching Metaverse Foundry


IT major Infosys has launched its metaverse foundry to ease and fast track enterprises’ exploration of the metaverse, including virtual and augmented environments, for their customers, workplace, products and operations.

The news came on the heels of Wipro announcing that it will be hiring more than 500 new professionals over the next fiscal year to support its growth in delivering cloud solutions to clients.

“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.

Infosys metaverse foundry helps enterprises navigate the metaverse by partnering with them through the Discover-Create-Scale cycle.

Infosys metaverse foundry puts Infosys’ depth in business domains and expertise in immersive, interactive and experiential design to work for enterprises through its use cases, business cases and execution roadmaps. They harness the power of technologies like AR/VR, Blockchain, NFT, IoT, Applied AI, cybersecurity and 5G to advance value exploration in the metaverse.

With Infosys metaverse foundry, enterprises can work in tandem with any creator-partner in the Infosys Innovation Ecosystem to manage the pilot-to-production ramp up smoothly or add more choices at the prototype stage to de-risk and future-proof investments.

The metaverse foundry will help the IT major extend its global corporate university, now on Infosys Wingspan platform, to the metaverse. This will enable the company’s workforce to seamlessly switch between physical and virtual learning spaces while benefiting from engaging and serendipitous interactions with fellow learners and educators.

The environment will include hybrid libraries, heuristically evolved virtual classrooms, gamified learning and digital twins to better understand complex concepts.
