The roadmap to a low carbon future in technology The IT sector accounts for 2% of global greenhouse gas emissions1. This will rise as data and new technologies increasingly play a central role in shaping organisational operations. As enterprises and governments introduce net zero or decarbonisation targets, IT operations will need to better understand their emissions and how they can be reduced without negatively impacting technology or business operations. SustainTech will bridge the gap between ambition and tangible action, promoting Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategies that attendees can use in their day-to-day operations within their business.
IN PICTURES: ARN 'Big Data – big opportunities in analysing the fort' roundtable
ARN's latest roundtable, 'Big Data – big opportunities in analysing the fort', hosted industry experts to discuss the definition and implications of what has become known as 'Big Data'. With today's ever-escalating amount of structured and unstructured data, there's no doubt enterprises are awash with data and need help managing the terabytes and petabytes of information. The burgeoning Big Data market continues to weave itself into the fabric of today's environments. For partners, the opportunities are endless, with hot verticals including retail and healthcare among others. But amid its relevance are questions of security, culture, and ethics. Full feature coverage of the roundtable will be included in the September 17 edition of ARN. Photographs by Ian Sharp.
