Many sectors, particularly the education, engineering, manufacturing, retail and healthcare fields, are already seeing the value that can be brought from investing in XR capabilities. Yet with such variety of use-cases, approaches and solutions on offer, understanding where to invest and where the ROI lies can prove a challenge for some businesses.
