Led by Chris Hardess, Microsoft and Paul Haimes, PTC

Microsoft are on a mission to empower every person and organisation on the planet to achieve more. Mixed reality has the potential to help customers and businesses across the globe do things that until now, have never been possible. Today, Microsoft HoloLens is helping businesses and their employees complete crucial tasks faster, safer, more efficiently, and create new ways to connect to customers and partners.

During this session, you will hear updates from Microsoft on practical use cases that includes how organisations are leveraging HoloLens and vast amounts of IoT data to create significant productivity gains for simulations, testing, design, maintenance, operations and training scenarios.  You will also be introduced to one of Microsoft’s partners, PTC who are empowering the use of Hololens with their Vuforia Augmented Reality software – part of their ThingWorx Industrial Internet of Things Platform. PTC will illustrate the ease with which powerful and engaging Augmented Reality experiences are created using simple drag and drop techniques – and then deployed throughout business.
