In these tough economic times, sustainability leaders and CIOs are looking for projects that deliver a fast payback and lower their environmental impact. In this session, IT executives and a PC power management expert will discuss their approach to greening IT operations and delivering rapid paybacks for the investment.
It is estimated that U.S. businesses are collectively wasting $2.8 billion dollars a year to power unused machines, emitting about 20 million tons of unnecessary CO2 – roughly equivalent to the output of 4 million cars. There are simple ways to reduce that waste. For example, a company with 10,000 PCs can save over half a million dollars annually simply by shutting down their PCs when they are not being used and automatically powering them on when they need to be.
Join this webcast and learn how enterprises, government agencies, and educational institutions are:
• Reducing PC energy costs by up to 60% – with a 6 to 12 month payback on IT investment
• Making a positive environmental impact – reducing PC energy waste & carbon footprint
• Having no impact on end user or IT productivity
Leading IT analyst firms Gartner and Forrester have validated the benefits of deploying PC power management and a recent Forrester Report concluded by saying:
“PC power management should be on every IT professional’s checklist of low hanging fruit to reduce costs—regardless of whether or not IT owns the electricity bill” -- Forrester Research, February 12, 2009.
Sign up today for this webcast and learn about the trends in Green IT, where the lowest hanging fruit is, and how you can be a thought leader and Green IT champion helping your organization meet its future sustainability objectives.
