CIONET Belgium: Decarbonising your business starts with IT.

Isn't it time to move away from the old thinking of stratifying and delineating between IT, business, and sustainability plans? With so many technical innovations, expertise and best practices at hand, there is no excuse for the CIO not to do his bit to achieve the organisation's sustainability goals. Here lies an excellent opportunity to simultaneously achieve sustainability goals and improve business performance. The CIO has several essential assets to work with, starting with infrastructure and data. To manage and optimise their sustainably, he or she ideally applies a holistic approach that covers the entire value chain. Best practices are available for decarbonising the data centre and infrastructure or cloud environment. The performance of systems and storage facilities can be optimised for the good of both the business and the planet based on the workloads they need to support. Modernising applications can also yield significant energy savings, as does the proper management of access to application data... Decarbonisation can also accelerate digitisation journeys. But this requires choosing the right technologies and integrating them into suitable architectures. Agenda 18h00 - Welcome & introductions 19h00 - Presentation and 3-course dinner 21h00 - End
