Green IT: Save Money & the Environment

Presented by

About this talk

In today’s business world, green IT is no longer an abstract or fringe topic. Executives are exploring green IT because energy costs are such a large operating expense for IT. By using more energy-efficient IT and business processes, organizations can reduce operating costs. Symantec’s recent Green IT report was evidence of a shift in emphasis from cost savings alone, to more environmentally conscious behavior. 89% of respondents indicate IT should play a very or extremely significant ‘green’ role’, while 94% report that their organization has a ‘green’ advocate, most of which have an IT focus.
