      • Key Questions for Panelists
      6) We've been focused on Green IT and Green solutions for some time now. However, I was surprised to see Green IT as the top technology priority in the survey. Do yo u have a green IT strategy? What are some initiative you're planning or have recently completed that focus on reducing your carbon footprint or energy consumption? How important is this to your company? 7) We're heard a lot about the economy during today meeting. How important is "Return on Investment" in your technology or solutions purchasing decisions? Does your CFO play a role in technology purchase decisions? How has this changed over the past year? 8) One of the best ways to increase share in today's economy is to take it from competitors. Succeeding in today's economy means being able to compete and win against larger competitors with deeper pockets and more people. How do you differentiate your company? How do you use your relative size to your advantage? 9) How do the top technology solution areas from our study match up against your needs? What technology trends do you see on the horizon?
