Cloud computing: Helping build a more sustainable future

There’s little doubt that sustainability has become a global imperative. In this Knowledge Short, David Linthicum discusses the vital role cloud computing can play in sustainability initiatives. He makes the case that cloud computing is more sustainable because resource use is optimized, and cloud providers typically employ green operations practices. He also talks about other ways organizations can practice sustainability in their everyday operations.


We're able to allocate resources in a much better way...because we're optimizing those resources.

As the chief cloud strategy officer, David Linthicum is responsible for building innovative technologies that help clients operate more efficiently while delivering strategies that enable them to disrupt their markets.
