The first wave of Oculus Quest 2 headsets ships out today and the self-proclaimed “most advanced all-in-one VR headset” will be released to the public, leaving many wondering how the new and the old stackup. So, let’s talk about the Quest 2 vs Quest and what these hardware developments mean for enterprise VR.
Facebook Connect, Facebook’s annual VR conference, delivered its message loud and clear: VR is the future and Facebook’s dedication to making VR more accessible to the masses is stronger than ever. The Oculus Quest 2 is coming in October - starting at only $299! While gamers rejoice, the implications of this extend far beyond the consumer world. The new Oculus for Business headset paves the way for true enterprise-grade VR. The initial investment in VR for business is now even lower with headsets starting at $799 (reduced from $999), making it easier than ever to add VR to your technology stack. VR for AEC has significant benefits - with innovative, early adopters already seeing results from virtual collaboration like faster decision-making, fewer costly errors, and a stronger spatial understanding of projects across various teams. The expanding ecosystem of immersive technology companies, like IrisVR, introduces cutting-edge VR software solutions to the AEC industry that empower teams to build better and faster than ever. So, what Oculus VR hardware changes should forward-thinking AEC companies know about? What can Facebook’s ‘Infinite Office’ and ‘Project Aria’ show us about the future of VR for business?

We’re back with the second and final installment of this series on how to go about implementing a successful Proof of Concept (POC).
In Part I of this series we worked to get goals and success criteria clearly defined, and now the question is - what’s next? In part II, we’ll bring it all home with how to follow through and finish strong with a Proof Of Concept (POC), guided by your Mutual Success Plan (MSP).
One of the biggest challenges that companies in AEC face is change management. Specifically when these changes deal with introducing new technology. We’re often asked by customers how other clients have incorporated emerging technology into their workflows and how they can develop a POC or “proof of concept” for VR.
While individual cases can be different, below we've identified and outlined a few proven key strategies behind some very successful POCs.
