Microsoft readies its latest ‘industrial metaverse’ pitch

  • Earlier this year, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said Microsoft doesn’t think there ever will be a single, centralized metaverse.
  • A recent posting on LinkedIn by Microsoft GM/Partner for Azure IoT, Tony Shakib, added more color on Microsoft’s enterprise metaverse talking points.
  • While holoportation simulations and customizable avatars interacting in fancy virtual worlds are definitely on Microsoft’s metaverse roadmap, it’s the nearer-term deliverables in the edge/IoT, machine learning and digital twins spaces that will be where Microsoft and partners will likely make money first and foremost.
