Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Software

Challenges and Opportunities for Sustainable Software With the increasing role played by software in supporting our society, its sustainability and environmental impact have become major factors in the development and operation of software-intensive systems. Myths and beliefs hide the real truth behind Green IT: IT is energy-inefficient because software is developed to make it so – intentionally or not. But how far are we from being able to control software energy-efficiency? What makes software greener? How can we transform measuringsoftware energy consumption in a general practice? What architectural design decisions will result in more sustainable systems? How can we ensure that new-generation software will be both cloud-ready and environmental-friendly? and How can we make evident the economic and social impact of developing software with ‘energy in mind’? These are a few of the challenges ahead for a more sustainable digital society. This talk will discuss them, hence drawing directions for exciting challenges, promising opportunities, and ultimately inspiring research.
