About this talk

From both a business and socioeconomic standpoint, sustainability has become a mission-critical initiative for organizations across the globe. In fact, sustainability was ranked #3 on the list of most important cloud storage service selection criteria1. As the world moves full speed ahead to enact sustainability programs, many organizations are relying on their IT infrastructure and services providers to design and deploy systems that reduce energy consumption, minimize carbon footprint, and eliminate waste, all without making any sacrifices to performance or reliability. Some organizations may feel they are behind in their sustainability goals, or less mature in their strategic approach and pressured to deliver results. However, it is important to remember that sustainability initiatives will span decades, evolve constantly, and require collaboration among multiple parties beyond one single organization or business unit. In this webinar, Andrew Smith of Wasabi Technologies is joined by guest speaker, sustainability expert Abhijit Sunil of Forrester Research, to address some of the most important IT- and infrastructure-related sustainability questions of today to help you focus on a realistic and impactful framework for long-term success.
