Bengaluru-based IT services major Infosys launched Metaverse Foundry that will help its clients with adaptation, creation and also help scale the new technology. The company has already developed 100 use cases and is actively working with clients on the same, said a top executive.
The move comes at a time when companies around the world are putting a huge focus on the metaverse. From Meta, formerly Facebook, and Microsoft, to IT services providers, the companies are investing significantly in the space.
Speaking to Moneycontrol, Ravi Kumar S, President, Infosys, said that metaverse is no longer a buzz word, and will play an important role as we enter post pandemic era where people probably want to live in the hybrid of physical and virtual worlds.
“The reason why we came up with the concept of Metaverse Foundry is because while some consumer businesses know what the use cases are, a large number of our clients are curious. So, the Foundry is this experimental infrastructure where you can discover, create and scale,” he said.
