Hi there,

How would you render the above in a simpler way; in the context of the following sentence: "He explicitly stated that the best approach is to have as light a footprint as possible in the branch, and push most features to the cloud."

Thanks.

    It is an internal document speaking about the advantages of a new cloud computing architecture.

    The sentence before goes like: "I like to mention GE CIO Jeff Morgan from his Zenith Live keynote last year. He explicitly stated that the best approach is to have as light a footprint as possible in the branch, and push most features to the cloud."

    "as light a footprint as possible" means "the lightest possible footprint" i.e. the smallest negative (carbon, electronic?) impact. I assume "the branch" refers to the office(s)..
