Data has never been more important, providing insights that drive the development of new products and services within the financial services ecosystem.
But data storage, in the shadow of net zero and international efforts, must meet demands for sustainability while handling greater volumes of data than ever.
Financial services, like many other industries, has embraced environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics in an attempt to measure and reduce its impact on the planet.
How can firms marry the two, ensuring their data storage needs are met while utilising data centres that run on lower power, require less cooling and produce less waste?
In this webinar, brought to you by FinTech Futures and Pure Storage, our expert panel drills down into the ways in which data storage is meeting the calls for business to reduce carbon emissions, while managing data in ways that allow firms to extract the necessary insights they need to innovate and grow.
You’ll learn about the current state of play within data storage sustainability, the importance of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’, the role ESG plays regardings business operations, how to make platforms more efficient and why optimal utilisation is key.
