Executive Summary

inNET Monitoring is in the frontline when it comes to tracking environmental change across Switzerland. Each year, its workload increases as environmental concern grows over the effects of air and noise pollution, and new technologies such as wireless communication that produce harmful radiation. The IT infrastructure between its central database and measuring stations was proving expensive. Because people had to travel to the stations to install updates and make adjustments to hardware and software, the organisation's carbon footprint was also higher than it wanted. But the situation has improved radically since inNET built a new architecture around Windows XP Embedded. It is saving CHF250,000 (U.S.$238,000) a year in management costs because of the high levels of automation.
