Tenet announced on Tuesday it plans to open up virtual reality as its main strategy, saying it wants to leverage its data analytics and data engineering capabilities to help its clients make more informed decisions about their applications.
“Our vision is to enable a world where every person and every organization can have a virtual reality experience,” Tenet chief executive David Lippert said in a statement.
“That’s why we’re building a company that enables virtual reality in the enterprise, by enabling customers to see and experience the real world in a way they can’t on a PC or laptop.
Virtual reality is a real opportunity for our business and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”
The company is building an “in-house” team to work on virtual reality, which will eventually be a major part of its operations.
The virtual reality team will be made up of a senior executive, a CTO, a senior technical developer, a product manager, and other senior staff, Tenet said.
“We believe virtual reality will be a transformative technology for our industry and we are committed to building a sustainable, profitable and secure business,” Lipperets said.
The company will also work with other companies to deliver a range of services and content, including virtual reality games.
Tenet also said it plans “to launch a series of innovative products and services over the coming years to help companies create, scale, and deploy more effective, sustainable and scalable cloud computing solutions.”
Tenet is an IT services company with more than a billion users worldwide.
It has more than 4,000 employees, which is up from 3,000 in 2016.
Its revenue comes from cloud services, advertising and other sales.
