Holography will significantly disrupt 3D imaging, as it offers better usability and addresses the shortcomings of current 3D solutions. While the holographic effects in Star Wars seem futuristic, there are real-life instances of pilot projects in which companies in industries such as healthcare, entertainment, events, and exploration are successfully deploying hologram-based business applications. Application vendors in the enterprise collaboration space are also teaming up with holographic technology providers to offer greater telepresence capabilities. This report highlights the key business and technological developments in this space and analyzes the business parameters that will shape its future progress. As business demand to use holography to drive richer user experiences and process innovation increases, infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals must understand the implications that the technology has for the IT infrastructure, including increased pressure on system and network capacity.
