TCS, University of Auckland Business School develop ‘world first’ APAC Digital Sustainability Index

By

Indian outsourcing company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has partnered with the Centre of Digital Enterprise (CODE) at the University of Auckland Business School to develop a claimed “world-first” APAC Digital Sustainability Index.

TCS says the new index will track the adoption and leverage of digital technologies by enterprises for their growth and transformation, and for discharging their social and environmental responsibilities, to create longer term value for all stakeholders - with the main goal of the Index to raise awareness of the role that technology is playing in transforming companies, governments and communities.

“The APAC-focused Digital Sustainability Index will evaluate current sustainability efforts undertaken by companies and governments, identify digital sustainability market leaders in the region, and uncover the factors critical to the development of sustainable digital solutions,” says TCS.

TCS said on Monday that a research report will uncover deep insights into key digital sustainability efforts around the region and rank these via the Index.

“The findings will be launched in mid-2021 and will highlight best practices, key challenges and opportunities for businesses and executives across the region. Subsequently, CODE and TCS expect to publish the index on an annual basis.”

“The University of Auckland Business School and the Centre of Digital Enterprise are very excited to be working with TCS and to be launching this index, which will help us better understand how technology impacts business performance, and how our world continues to evolve with the advent of new technologies,” said Ilan Oshri, Professor of Technology and Globalisation, Graduate School of Management, The University of Auckland Business School.

“Never has the impact of technology on the community and sustainable innovation been more relevant and more necessary,” Oshri added.

"TCS is thrilled to be partnering with the Centre of Digital Enterprise at the University of Auckland Business School, to launch the Digital Sustainability Index for the APAC region,” said Girish Ramachandran, President TCS Asia Pacific.

“Digital technologies are not only enabling innovative business models but are also leading to new pathways for enterprises and governments to support and empower local communities. By creating a clear evaluation framework for digital sustainability, we will be able to help businesses, communities and governments find new opportunities and celebrate the successes of their sustainability activities."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
