Sponsor: Avanade Inc., Seattle, WA

This year I will be working on extended reality (XR) technologies alongside Avanade, the leading provider of innovative digital and cloud services, business solutions and design-led experiences on the Microsoft ecosystem. Many companies struggle to adopt XR technologies because it is cost prohibitive, development is complex, and most solutions are custom. My project leverages the power of Microsoft technology and the expertise of Avanade to prove to clients that XR is cost efficient and scalable. This year my planned outcomes are defining key activities and industries Avanade can execute on to drive value for clients seeking XR solutions, exploring what Avanade must do to capture the XR solution market at scale, investigating solutions to nullify industrywide perceptions of high cost, helping Avanade clients understand the ROI of XR technology investment, and ideating new implementations of XR solutions to drive value in other industries. I am excited to work on a project that has the power to transform lives and drive industrywide change!
