Anyone who still believes that sustainability is a short-term trend that will soon die down had better take a closer look. During my professional life, I have repeatedly dealt with the subject in depth in a wide variety of industries, and I am delighted to see that a change in thinking has now taken place. The need to act more sustainably has reached the center of society. In practice, however, many people still find it difficult - companies in particular often simply don't know where they can and should even start. That's why I'm not only pleased that my employer Aparavi offers a simple solution for sustainable data management, but also that as part of the new Aparavi Advisory Board I can push the issue even harder and help put it at the top of the agenda.
Sustainability is sometimes easier than you think
Whether it's doing away with plastic in restaurants or paper in the office - if there's one thing I've learned in my previous positions when it comes to the acceptance of sustainability measures, it's that they should hurt companies and employees as little as possible and ideally even improve everyday working life. Aparavi's solution fully meets all points: companies can use it to delete useless data in no time at all - their employees won't miss it (in case of doubt, they've long forgotten about its existence anyway) and can find really relevant information much faster in the future. At the same time, companies save electricity (and, of course, costs) that would have been incurred to store this data. Less power consumption means less CO2 emissions, in other words: everyone wins with sustainable data management.
We should all think and, above all, act more sustainably, but the latter doesn't always have to be time-consuming, arduous or expensive; on the contrary. Sometimes, however, the solution, like deleting unnecessary data, is so simple that we don't even think about it - I want to change that.
An advisory board thrives on diverse voices
Data management is a topic that affects companies of all sizes and industries and is closely linked to many other factors. With the current composition of the Advisory Board, we have excellent coverage of these - each of us covers one or more topics with which we are not only familiar, but which are also close to our hearts - like sustainability in my case. This makes us a great complement to each other as an advisory board and we will support Aparavi in the best possible way.
Through my role as Chief of Staff at Aparavi, I know that companies need both an overview of the big picture and the small details to make the right decisions. I believe that as an advisory board we can support Aparavi in exactly this with our knowledge and different experiences and I expect intense, exciting and insightful discussions in our meetings.
