Why Read This Report

Enterprises are increasingly going green, and looking to IT operations to help them reduce corporate energy consumption and become more environmentally responsible. Some IT shops are responding by seeking help from professional services providers that assess, plan, and implement green initiatives for procurement, operation, and disposal of IT assets and processes. Strategists at a broad set of IT services providers — from data center specialists like HP and Intel to corporate strategy consultants like Accenture and Deloitte — are positioning to participate in this nascent market, which we project will peak at $4.8 billion in user spending in 2013 before gradually declining thereafter.
