Dynatrace has launched Carbon Impact -- an application that's designed to help partners and customers gain "real-time insights into the carbon footprint" of their organizations. Early adopters include Atos, a global IT consulting firm.
The new application shows how traditional multi-cloud management and monitoring companies are expanding their software platforms to address business sustainability and net zero company goals.
Amid that backdrop, Dynatrace Carbon allows users to calculate, track, and report the carbon footprint of Dynatrace-monitored hybrid and multicloud ecosystems, the company said. The software leverages guidance from the Sustainable Digital Infrastructure Alliance (SDIA) and formulas from Cloud Carbon Footprint.
- SDIA involves multiple organizations that are committed to executing a Roadmap to Sustainable Digital Infrastructure by 2030.
- Cloud Carbon Footprint is a free and open source software tool that allows users to measure and analyze their carbon emissions.
Early adopters of Dynatrace Carbon include Atos, the global IT consulting firm. In a prepared statement about the software, John Van Geel, COO of digital, cloud and BDS at Atos, said: "We are committed to helping our clients understand their current digital emissions status, build a roadmap toward emissions reduction, engage staff around sustainability, and ensure their digital services underpin their net-zero targets. As a long-term Dynatrace partner with extensive experience helping customers extract the full value from the Dynatrace platform through best practice adoption and ITSM integration, we are excited to bring Dynatrace Carbon Impact to our joint customers.
Additional executives quoted in the announcement included:
- Daan Terpstra, CEO at SDIA.
- Bernd Greifeneder, founder and CTO at Dynatrace.
Dynatrace expects the Carbon Impact application to be available by May 2023.
Dynatrace competes with a range of rivals in the application performance management (APM) and multi-cloud monitoring sector. Key rivals with sustainability capabilities include Cisco AppDynamics for full-stack observability; and Datadog and its Hardware Sentry partnership, among many other players in the market.
