Often the driving force behind a business' decision to move their systems to the cloud includes factors such as efficiency, cost-effectiveness, flexibility and accessibility. However there are also many environmental reasons that make the cloud a strong option.
At Xactium we strive to reduce our environmental footprint and ensure we are as energy efficient as possible, this is one of our core Corporate Social Responsibility objectives.
Developing solutions to help organisations to run their risk and claims management using energy efficient technology is a big part of this. Using our partner Salesforce’s platform helps us to achieves this, as Salesforce continues to pioneer greener technologies.
In terms of technology, not only does using the Salesforce platform mean greater energy and CO2 savings over traditional on premises software, Salesforce also offers efficiencies over private cloud (where a company licenses software utilitising a platform - or cloud - solely set up for its own use) due to the scale of its energy-saving innovations.
- For each transaction processed, the Salesforce platform is massively more carbon efficient than the equivalent transaction performed in an on premises deployment and private cloud infrastructures.
- Significant energy and carbon savings can be achieved by migrating services and applications to the cloud.
- Cumulative reductions in carbon emissions at platform level signal huge potential for reducing global carbon emissions.
