“To truly transform and meet net-zero goals, the time to act is now,” says John Markus Lervik, Cognite co-founder and CEO. “We host Ignite Talks to bring industry leaders together in what we see as an increasingly vital, solution-oriented conversation. It’s about industrial data and making the most of it. It’s about the challenges and opportunities in optimizing massive operations through technology. And it’s about striking a crucial balance between business sustainability and environmental sustainability.”

“Understanding and contextualizing data is essential for companies to take command of their digital manufacturing transformations, to make progress toward net-zero, and to succeed in the industrial future,” says Julie Sweet, Chair and CEO of Accenture. “That is why Cognite and Accenture are committed to working with our clients and ecosystem partners to empower manufacturers to discover new insights within their data, quickly and at scale.”

“Reaching net-zero requires organizations to transform data-driven insights into action so they can assess impact, evaluate progress and retool operations. At Microsoft, we are committed, along with partners like Cognite, to co-innovate solutions that allow organizations to advance their sustainability journey,” says Judson Althoff, Microsoft’s chief commercial officer.

Attendees can expect conversations on how technology shapes our industrial future, circular economies, the rise of automation, and the future of industrial data management. There will also be deep dives on profitable sustainability and Industrial DataOps.
