When 1 + 1 > 2

Updated: Apr 4, 2023

Magic happens when you combine two or three fields together to come up with meaningful insights.

Personally, I believe FinOps has been one such field for me in which I am able to combine knowledge for -

  • Finance

  • Engineering

  • Cloud Computing

One of the next wave with FinOps as I see is going to be green computing or carbon-aware computing.

With Apple, already rolling out the option for carbon aware charging for iPhones, and the carbon impact of Cloud Computing increasing every day - the time for adopting Carbon Aware computing might be coming soon.

Personally, the direction I see it going is Software incorporating eco modes to reduce carbon emissions, either automatically or with user consent. Some other examples can be:

  • Video conferencing software adjusts the streaming quality to prioritize audio when bandwidth is low

  • TCP/IP increases transfer speed based on the data broadcasted

  • The web experience can improve based on device resources and bandwidth available.

Why do I care about this?

I started practicing Meditation actively since last year, and with meditation comes the feeling of love for nature and a feeling of oneness.

Although, reasons might be selfish, but the intention is to combine FinOps and Sustainability where I can measure my impact towards then environment.
