00:28 — The premise of the Sustainability Impact Digital Summit will coincide with Acceleration Economy’s continued focus on sustainability — both in terms of sustainability clouds and real-world impacts coming from sustainability efforts, notes John.
01:18 — Bob has spent time speaking with folks at companies, such as IBM, that are narrowing down their focus on sustainability. At a recent investors conference, IBM CEO Arvind Krishna discussed ways to reduce waste through more effective and insightful uses of data. He noted that there is no longer a need to separate the concepts of purpose and profit in relation to sustainability.
01:44 — Bob suggests that more and more business leaders are coming around to the “fused outcome” they’ve wanted for so long — driving sustainability initiatives through technology like artificial intelligence (AI), software, and analytics with operational and financial data. This is the focus of Acceleration Economy’s Sustainability Impact Digital Summit.
02:16 — Acceleration Economy currently has more than 200 pieces of created content around the premise of sustainability. John asks Tony what attendees can expect from this event.
02:39 — Sustainability is clearly going to be a priority for every business leader in 2023 and beyond, says Tony. The combination of business strategy and technology strategy is driving the convergence of sustainability. Acceleration Economy is leading this event to help its audience and business leaders alike understand how to mesh these two focuses together in order to drive impactful sustainability efforts.
03:57 — John adds that the team is building this event to decrease the amount of time it takes for folks to understand what the impact can be from the featured technology vendors and their solutions. There will be 15 10-minute presentations from different technology vendors sharing their solutions.
05:04 — At Acceleration Economy’s CIO Summit, taking place April 2-4 in Scottsdale, Arizona, there will be various short-form sessions that answer the biggest questions that practitioners have about their sustainability strategies.
