CMS Questions at Green:Net conference

Leave a comment

Earth2tech reports on five questions that will be asked of carbon management software providers at tomorrow’s Green:Net conference:

1). How will carbon management software players tackle markets that lack carbon pricing?

2). How will carbon accounting systems be able to incorporate the growing depth and scale of information that’s expected to be required of companies?

3). Will environmental health and safety incumbents hold an advantage in future markets?

4). How will startups compete with — or integrate with — established corporate enterprise software platforms?

5). Will energy efficiency services provide a foot in the door for carbon management of the corporate market?

Meanwhile, the “software as silver bullet” story is underscored on the conference home page.

As I’ve described in earlier posts, assuming that “software is gonna save you” in and of itself may sink you.
