Barely a week ago, Forrester released a new report called The State Of The Metaverse, a collaborative effort from five of Forrester’s top analysts to define the metaverse in a way that companies can understand and prepare to act on today. Our take is simple: The metaverse isn’t here yet. But there are parts of the metaverse that leaders should pay attention to, and our report explains all that. One of the five dream-team analysts we assembled to write the report was my colleague J. P. Gownder, who has been looking at the precursor technologies — like virtual or augmented reality — that will eventually shape the metaverse once it comes more into focus. From the self-centered perspective of the future of work team, I asked J. P. to sit down with me and discuss his take on how the metaverse is already being experienced in the enterprise and how that’s likely to expand.
