FIIB White Paper 2011SDC’s On-going Research ProjectsDeveloping a Green IT Maturity Model | Prof. Swanand DeodharAbstractGreen IT (GIT) refers to environmental impact of an organization’s IT infrastructure.. For example,presence of technological products that have long life span reduce the machine waste andpresence of environment-friendly server farms reduce heat generation. However, such an outlookexamines only the technological maturity of any organization towards GIT. Although it is criticalaspect of GIT, there are other facets that need consideration while assessing Green IT readinessfor any organization. In this study, we undertake a more holistic approach by incorporating twomore (in addition to Technological Maturity) dimensions of GIT Maturity of an organization:Functional Maturity and Societal Maturity. Functional maturity pertains to organizationalprocesses (how Green IT is used in business processes) while societal maturity pertainstakeholders in organization’s value-web (presence of Green IT in vendor organizations).
