The energy here is so palpable that one can almost touch it. The buzzing precincts of San Francisco Marriott Marquis suddenly seem incredibly electric. Nearly 800 delegates, including our clients from around the world, industry analysts, advisors and our ecosystem partners are gathered here, for Infosys Confluence 2015, to deliberate, discuss and debate how technology can make it possible for all of us to push the limits, make our businesses stronger and do all that we can imagine. Indeed, Be More.

While this overwhelming participation and celebration stands testimony to the three-decade strong relationship we've forged with our stakeholders, there's certainly more to it. I believe it is the dialogue Infosys has started about the new next-generation business challenges that these industry leaders are trying to get their arms around. Enterprises today continue to be challenged by the traditional concerns around efficiency and growth, while at the same time, they are witnessing fundamentally new kinds of problems for which there are no best practices yet. Infosys recently embarked on a journey to address these dual concerns through the Renew-New strategy. The renewal of the known - bringing massive, transformational improvements to our traditional services by bringing continuous innovations through automation, repeatability and AI. And simultaneously, focusing our creativity and imagination on the unknown - completely new kinds of solutions, open-source based, next-generation elastic platforms to solve the new kinds of problems. In other words, be the next-generation technology services provider. And what better place to see all this innovation in action than at Infosys Confluence 2015!

There are certainties in life. The sun will rise in the east and set in the west. And, rest assured, any Apple product you buy is going to be connected to every other Apple product currently on the market. But what about Apple Pay, the mobile payment service and digital wallet that the company unveiled in fall of last year? How does its connections to other Apple products help or hinder it?

Let's start at the very beginning. The initial idea behind Pay was to help consumers make payments using Apple mobile devices. Apple Pay would accomplish this feat by replacing the credit or debit magnetic strip at credit card terminals. Apple partnered with an array of blue-chip companies, including American Express, MasterCard, and Visa. At first, all seemed to be operating smoothly: Apple Pay worked with Visa's PayWave, MasterCard's PayPass, and American Express' ExpressPay terminals.

Carbon Divestment Becomes a Financial Imperative

Pricing Carbon: It's About Our Economy & Our Future [Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQPDGfeRoS8]

Today, we celebrate Earth Day.

This day takes many of us out of our comfort zones, which is what it is designed to do. It forces us to think about the finite natural resources we have on what the astrophysicist Carl Sagan once referred to as "that little blue dot" floating around in space. It's the only home we have, so we might as well do everything we can to take care of it.

Sometimes that's easier said than done. For years, carbon divestment strategies were in the sole realm of universities and were based completely on moral issues. That moral high ground is nice, but something is happening around the world to transform it into a financial imperative. As that transformation takes place, more people, governments, and corporations are sitting up and taking notice.
