What we discussed:

Organisations are struggling to balance ambitious corporate sustainability goals in place alongside their digital transformation and infrastructure modernisation programmes. With only one IT refresh cycle left until 2030, the decisions made in 2023 will have a huge impact on the ability to achieve sustainable competitive advantage.

Yet, the environment faced by the digital leaders has never been more complex.

Supply chain issues, chip shortages, technical debt, legacy infrastructure, changing stakeholder requirements, and rigid infrastructure all create financial, operational and energy inefficiencies which threaten to overwhelm digital transformation and the infrastructure modernisation required to achieve it.

In this session, we discussed how enterprises are making these critical decisions, including:

  • Balancing cost, control and emissions reduction when implementing Green IT Strategy
  • Exploring the economic and sustainability benefits of Infrastructure as Code (IaC)
  • Discuss the role of data replication, redundancy, and distributed architecture in workload and workflow patterns that minimize egress costs and environmental impact
