As businesses worldwide seek to maximize their value to their customers and communities, the total value equation has expanded to now include the impact on sustainability for the environment.

The ways that companies, along with their partners, suppliers, and employees best manage and govern their resources and assets speaks volumes about their place among peers. And it allows them to take a leadership position as stewards and protectors of the future. The sooner the world’s industries develop a commitment to reach a net-zero carbon emissions posture, for example, the better for everyone in gaining environmental sustainability.

Stay with us as BriefingsDirect examines how Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has newly accelerated its many programs and initiatives to reduce its carbon emissions, conserve energy, and reduce waste -- including far earlier net-zero dates and more impactful emission-reduction milestones.

Listen here how HPE’s newest living progress report provides a blueprint for other organizations in and outside of the HPE orbit to also hasten and improve their sustainability efforts.

Just as cloud computing initially seeped into organizations under the cloak of shadow IT, application programming interface (API) adoption has often followed an organic, inexact, and unaudited path. 

IT leaders know they’re benefiting from APIs -- internal, via third parties, and often outwardly exposed -- they just don’t know where they are, how much they support key services, and how they’re being used … or abused.

As a result, developers and business architects alike don’t know how organically adopted technologies like APIs are adversely impacting their businesses -- until something like the Log4j and Log4shell vulnerabilities have run amok.

Stay with us now as we explore how API-intensive and API-experienced businesses are bringing maturity to their APIs’ protections through greater observability, tracing, and usage analysis.
