IDC Green IT Conference 2008

Driven by the rising cost of energy, public opinion and government initiatives to cut carbon emissions, IT professionals are examining how they can improve their green credentials across all aspects of their operations.

They want to examine both the positive and negative impact that ICT can have on the environment and build a sustainable infrastructure that can minimise their organisation's impact on the environment, whether through improved business processes or energy efficient technology.

The challenge of ''green IT'' is increasingly raised by organisations. Many IT departments are faced with the difficulty of combining sustainability with other, seemingly contradictory, requirements.

IDC's Green IT Conference will provide IT decision makers with an all-encompassing view of how innovation can enable them to reduce the environmental impact of their business operations.
