IDC PlanScape: Virtual Reality Training for Technical Skills
This IDC study provides insights into virtual reality training for technical skills.
"Virtual reality is part of the digital transformation of corporate training," says Ramon T. Llamas, research director for IDC's Augmented and Virtual Reality team. "VR shortens the learning curve and increases knowledge retention, and the company reaps the benefit of more knowledgeable workers. By focusing on technical skills, workers can safely learn the proper techniques of how to operate machinery and equipment for both routine and nonroutine situations and feel better prepared before moving on to the work floor."
