VENDORiQ: Australia-US to Launch Accelerator Program for Zero Net Initiatives
2 August 2022: The Australian Government will formally collaborate with the United States to start launching projects that will promote each country’s climate targets and reduce emissions. The US-Australia Net Zero Technology Acceleration Partnership will focus on long term energy storage technology, digital electricity grids, carbon dioxide reduction, plastics research, and renewable energy. Australia possesses large amounts of mineral reserves such as nickel, cobalt and lithium, which are essential resources used in zero emissions technology.
Why it’s Important
Government initiatives that promote zero net technology have a strong influence in private organisations operational practices. For instance, the intention in demonstrating that Cloud savings have occurred is to rationalise the need for a process of migration and change. Enterprises, however, must learn to realise the purported savings similar to how government agencies and the education sector are doing, by following common requirements when they share many services.
IBRS explored the tangible costs associated with migrating to the Cloud, with both IaaS and SaaS journeys investigated in the 'IBRS Cloud Migration Case Study' advisory. The report is aimed at policymakers and strategists looking at the macroeconomic impact of technology, it also details the costs and benefits of Cloud adoption by industry sectors, providing IT strategists with realistic benchmarks.
- Procurement teams
- IT teams
For users of Cloud (and other IT services), it is necessary to examine any proposals to check their validity. Ask vendors to understand how their offers work because in most, if not all cases, what they propose in terms of savings through clean energy may not fit your enterprise requirements.
