Plenary Keynote: A balancing act – delivering cloud at the intersection of sustainability, community and innovation

The world is becoming increasingly digital and connected – and as cloud infrastructure increases to support this shift – ever more conscious about resource use and environmental impact. This has presented new and interesting challenges for a company like Microsoft, which is on a mission to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. With rapid growth in cloud, the company uncovered a unique intersection of sustainability, innovation and community, and the balancing act that must be struck between the three. Noelle Walsh, leader of Microsoft Cloud Operations + Innovation, responsible for building and operating the company’s global infrastructure, will share her perspective on this unique intersection, along with incremental- and step-changes she believes the industry will need to make to deliver on the world’s digital needs, responsibly.
