Architecting the Enterprise with Practical Sustainability
Meet the Experts
Global climate issues and the race to carbon neutrality have prioritized sustainability for both C-suite and front-line employees. Commerce and buildings are vital to this green future and fundamental to modern life, yet they fall short of their sustainable promise. The authors of the recent Amazon #1 book Practical Sustainability share findings from their research, and what it means for enterprise technology leaders. This session discusses a practical approach to sustainability, in three areas: circular commerce, smart spaces, and human experience – and how enterprise architects are critical to a sustainable future. Circular commerce converts traditional linear, extractive commercial models to regenerative ones that respect provenance and reimagine consumption. Smart spaces transform static, physical places into adaptable digital buildings, and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. All this, using applied systems design and digital twins while improving the human experience.
