Immersive Collaboration – Back to the future

Atos- Immersive Collaboration – Back to the futureIn the ‘good old days’ people would travel to their office, and everything they needed to work could be found there – including their colleagues.

Today, just 10% of vehicles carry built-in connected, but by 2020, it will be an incredible 90%!

For manufacturers, connected cars open up vital new revenue streams and help increase customer loyalty.
