The incentive to adopt a Green IT strategy is not strong in many IT organisations where resilience, availability, continuity and cost are the key performance measures for the IT Director. However, the IT Director is key if the organisation is to adopt a sustainable IT strategy. Technology advances have reduced the risk in introducing many of the measures that give big reductions in both environmental impact and straight cost. But the fact remains that the IT Director and the IT department will have to implement these changes, and this set against a mounting operational workload and cost pressures.
Not to say that this is a reason for putting things off completely, on the contrary, early introduction of many measures can be cheap and easy giving the organisation and the environment a “quick win”. Many of the larger initiatives will have an obvious benefit and an attractive ROI and can be scheduled in to planned technology refreshes.
The key is to establish a baseline of where you are now and identify what can be improved and the benefits of doing this. Then establish a guiding policy and a roadmap to implementing the necessary changes.
We can work with you and your team to baseline the IT organisation and identify the quick wins and longer term initiatives necessary to achieve your long term Green IT goals. We can also help you with best practice in establishing the way forward and formulating your organisation's individual roadmap.
