Why Read This
Green IT awareness and action are on the rise. In 2008, Forrester received 130 inquiries from IT end user professionals on green IT, the majority of which focused on benchmark data — such as quantifiable benefits and meaningful metrics — and identifying power management best practices both in and outside of the data center. In anticipation of rising energy costs, heightened awareness for corporate environmental responsibility, and increased greenhouse gas and electric waste disposal regulation, Forrester expects an even stronger interest from IT professionals who are working to refine their scope of green IT activity and its business case into 2009.
