Around 50 CIOs and business leaders from top Austrian companies participated in this exclusive event centered around bringing Assisted Reality through the connected worker experience.
"There is huge interest in this technology from various companies, cutting across all industries, from logistics and manufacturing to service technology and healthcare and some interest even in completely customized solutions," says Damianos Soumelidis, Managing Director of Nagarro Austria.
Representatives from well-known Austrian companies such as Andritz, KTM, Hoerbiger, ÖAMTC, ÖBB, Flughafen Wien and Post AG were part of this event. They were welcomed with an Assisted Reality Live experience at the check-in desk and registered via Google Glass.

Keynote speakers included James Lee – Head of Sales, Glass North America and Europe from Google; Jay Kim – Chief Strategy Officer at the Assisted Reality platform provider Upskill; and specialists from the Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 domain represented by Umang Garg – Global Practice Leader, Industry and Automation, Nagarro.
With inspiring sessions that included examples from Upskill’s work with clients such as Boeing where the production staff is working with Google Glass and a dedicated demonstration area showcasing the Connected Factory and Connected Vehicle scenarios set up by Nagarro, the event brought home the importance of Assisted Reality in the future of all industries.
About bringing Google Glass to this event James Lee added, “There is clear business value in using Google Glass and working with Nagarro and Upskill to build this value to improve processes in manufacturing and logistics, to drive efficiencies and reduce errors.”
With the help of an exciting demonstration use case, another session focused on creating a realistic vision of enabling a Connected Worker 4.0 by leveraging intelligent services.
