FigBytes Inc. and Akamai Technologies Launch “Beyond Data” to Strategic Sustainability Leadership Webinar Series

Gatineau, Quebec, January 16, 2018 /PRLog/ FigBytes Inc. (“FigBytes” or “the company”), the leading developer of enterprise, cloud-based integrated sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) software, announced today that it will be collaborating on a series of webinars with its client, Akamai Technologies, Inc. (“Akamai”), (NASDAQ: AKAM), one of the world’s largest and most trusted cloud delivery platforms.

The series will feature phases of Akamai’s journey from initial energy efficiency programs to ambitious renewable energy procurement goals and will feature Dr. Nicola Peill-Moelter, Akamai’s Senior Director of Environmental Sustainability.

Sustainability/CSR is rapidly moving from “traditional” siloed, compliance and retrospective reporting approaches to forward-looking, strategy-driven, real-time engagement and FigBytes is the leading platform to support this evolution.

Nicola Peill-Moelter said, “People are inspired by story, not data and graphs. The FigBytes’ strategy dashboard enables us to tell an engaging story about Akamai’s journey towards achieving our sustainability goals.”

Akamai has been working with the FigBytes’ sustainability platform since 2014 to track energy and carbon emissions from thousands of data centres across more than 130 countries, supporting Akamai’s aggressive program of energy efficiency from Akamai’s Intelligent Cloud Platform, which accounts for 90% of their carbon impact.

“Our partnership with Akamai is a powerful example of how FigBytes can initially solve highly complex data challenges,” said FigBytes CEO, Colin Grant. “From there, leaders are well-positioned to map and track a path to achieving bold strategic goals.”

The 60-minute interactive webinar will showcase a multinational technology company’s journey from complex data logjams to an elegant visualization of strategy, data, reporting and brand.

This webinar will be hosted by FigBytes Inc. on January 31, 2018 at 11:00 am PST (2:00 pm EST). Register for the live webinar at:
