Green IT in the Boardroom
Spreker: Jose Iglesias (VP of Global Solutions, Symantec)
At the same time that data centers are running short on space and power, IT organizations are also finding themselves dealing with skyrocketing amounts of information. But such challenges often have a way of presenting new opportunities. Today, Green IT is re-shaping the data center and bringing IT to the forefront in the boardroom. Energy efficiency is not just a set of quick fixes like virtualizing everything or focusing on new hardware – but rather a fundamental shift in how to approach the problem from the start by leveraging an existing investment in software and planning for how to save “green” while “going green” year over year. It covers the entire IT organization including the endpoints, servers, storage and communications. Jose will cover the practical issues of implementing green IT technologies into businesses and what the consequences are locally and across the globe.
