The Role of IT Management Software in the Greening of IT
Going green represents a company's mission to support environmental sustainability. Whether it's socially inspired or economically driven - it simply makes good business sense. In most cases the initial driver of a Green IT strategy is the cost savings that can be attained through increased efficiencies in energy usage. Achieving sustainability benefits represents a secondary, albeit positive by-product. While advancements in energy efficient IT hardware promote this cause along with services to implement best practices, IT management software represents a powerful yet cost-effective solution to implement unified and consistent Green IT goals.
