Isn't it time to move away from the old thinking of stratifying and delineating between IT, business, and sustainability plans?  Our climate is changing rapidly and in order to avoid the worst impacts we need to aggressively decarbonize our economy and our daily lives. Climate change is real, it’s happening right now and with so many technical innovations, expertise and best practices at hand, there is no excuse for the CIO not to do his or her bit to achieve the organisation's sustainability goals. But there 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.

CIONET, in partnership with Hitachi Vantara, invites you to an Exclusive Dining Evening at Château D'eau to share and discuss these important challenges.

You will have the opportunity to sit together with peer CIOs, sustainability managers and experts to listen to their personal testimonials and exchange ideas on techniques and practices to help your organisation to deliver net zero outcomes.


Program of the event

During this executive dinner, we will discuss these compelling questions with our community of CIOs:

  • What are the top challenges in building your decarbonisation strategy?

  • What are the key challenges for organisations in improving decarbonisation and to reach the KPI’s? 

  • Do you consider decarbonisation when moving workloads to public cloud?

  • Have you considered converged and hyperconverged platforms to address sustainability goals, cost, complexity, and efficiency of on-premises infrastructure?

  • As we look ahead to 2023, what are your top priorities as it relates to improving your organisation’s decarbonisation?

We look forward to welcoming you to this stimulating discussion and dinner!
