Carbon Management Software: Views of SAP, Hara, and AMEE

Leave a comment

Green:Net Panel on carbon management software [Scroll down to video library, fifth presentation]

I scanned a few of the videos besides the above.

My overall sense is that presenters were insightful about their view of the state of “green IS”. Cross section of views made for unique set of approaches, solutions, predictions, etc. (VCs, software companies, consultants, government, etc.)

In my opinion, the conference lacked critical perspectives. For example, where were the comments on the hit-and-miss record of corporate software applications in the past (e.g., ERP) and how/why that will/will not happen again? Are lessons learned being incorporated in this new wave of green software applications? Perhaps this can be a part of next year’s conference.
