Housemark’s Housing Data and Analytics Summit on 9 November will feature a range of in and out of sector data experts speaking on a variety of topics.

Each week we’ll focus on one of our expert speakers and this week it’s time to meet Johan Hanekom, Principal for Sustainability and Innovation at Amazon Web Services (AWS). Johan will be joining us to speak about ‘how cloud operations and technology can support organisations towards their sustainability goals.’ AWS supports organizations of all sizes and across all sectors to build and implement solutions that meet their sustainability goals. Johan will explore how moving to the cloud can help housing providers reduce their environmental impact by lowering energy consumption, reducing travel by enabling remote work and promoting paperless operations.
