Why 5G Needs Cleaner Energy

5G promises to enhance telcos’ connectivity capabilities and bolster growth, but it also presents a challenge for them to keep operating costs down, meet their sustainability goals and mitigate new risks for customers, investors and governments

How should telcos approach their design, procurement, deployment and operation of 5G to minimise and de-carbonise their energy use, while also driving their customers’ transition to lower emissions through 5G-enabled services?

In this webinar, we will draw on insights from interviews with leading telcos, and a survey of 500+ enterprises from a range of verticals to address the following questions:

  • How does 5G pose a challenge to energy efficiency, and why should telcos make this a business priority?
  • How can telcos use 5G to meet increasingly ambitious sustainability commitments?
  • What steps are already being taken by market leaders?
  • How could this translate into an opportunity to support enterprise customers in their journeys to lower emissions?

Why Retail IT Teams Should Get an Award for Making it through 2020

Register today and lunch is on us!

*Offer good for the first 50 registrants

We know retail IT teams were amongst those that were hit extremely hard during COVID. Recently, we teamed up with DCD to dive into the impacts the digital transformation is having on the retail industry and we want to share the results with you. 

Our team has put together a webinar being held on March 11th to talk through some of the findings that I am pretty excited about, and here is why:

  • Receiving real-life examples of how retail companies are handling the digital transformation
  • Understanding some of the strains these updates are putting on IT equipment, and how the right infrastructure can help
  • See why we think you should get an award for making it through last year

Why Retail IT Teams Should Get an Award for Making it through 2020

Out of every industry that COVID is taking its toll on, Retail was hit hard. We went from stores steadily adopting grocery pickup to providing completely touchless options for customers. After dabbling in it for years, the shopping experience became truly omnichannel to better serve customers’ new needs. That is no small feat.

During this presentation, we will showcase findings from our 2021 retail supplement including:
  • The amazing in-store and distribution tech innovations from 2020
  • How they led to growth for the companies who implemented them
  • Best practices on rolling out these initiatives without straining your Edge and IT infrastructure
Hear how stores like Walmart, or tech giant Amazon, are driving transformation in the industry, which ones are going well, and which you might want to steer clear from, for now.
