This talk will discuss the convergence of three important mega trends, Digital Transformations, Sustainability and Mass Collaboration and how they can help accelerate business and society to a more sustainable trajectory and future. Initially the talk will discuss important future technology developments such as Exascale computing and discuss how Moore's law is colliding with many domains to create disruptive and positive change. The talk will then focus on how computing and communication technologies can help drive sustainable change and introduce how the IT Capability Maturity Framework can help ensure that in aggregate the value potential of new technologies can be harnessed optimally. Lastly the talk will discuss the importance of mass collaboration and sustainability paradigms and cite the smart grid as an excellent example of how these three mega trends can create significant value and a more sustainable future.
