Speaking Session At-a-Glance
"The Jevons Paradox: How Democratization of IT Increases Demand for Cloud"
Who: Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer, Apcera
When: Wednesday, November 2, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 5:35 p.m. PT
Where: Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA
Presentation Summary:
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In this presentation, Thiele will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examining how the internet and the cloud has allowed for the democratization of IT, resulting in an increased demand for the cloud and the drive to develop new ways to utilize it.
