  • 1. The “Readiness” Framework and Standards for Green ICT Adoption – Saving Money while Saving Energy and the Planet Graeme Philipson and Idris Sulaiman Presentation to BINUS University, Jakarta, 19 May 2010
  • 2. Overview • About Us • Green IT Benefits • Green IT Framework • Closing Words 2
  • 3. About us GRAEME PHILIPSON • Founder and Research Director of Connection Research – A market research and analysis firm specialising in the convergence of sustainable and, digital technologies – 30+ years in IT as a market researcher, analyst and journalist – Founding editor of MIS Magazine and former Gartner research director IDRIS SULAIMAN • Green IT Practice Researcher, Visiting Fellow, ANU-CECS – Green IT Diffusion and Energy Efficiency Regulation • Research and education adviser (and former CEO) of ComputersOFF – Independent and not-for-profit organisation – A certification program • Member of Aust. Computer Society (ACS) & Aust. Inst. of Energy (AIE) 3
  • 4. About You: Innovator, Early Adopter, or …? 4 Everett Rogers (1962), Diffusion of Innovations – Fifth Ed., 2003
  • 5. Green IT Benefits – Your Company - Improvement in sustaining your IT operations and infrastructure - Lower operating expenses (esp. electricity) - Reduction or avoidance of capital expenditures - Align corporate green initiatives to raise branding - Contemporary appeal to employees - Compliance with regulations and CSR demands 5
  • 6. Green IT Benefits - World Green information technology (IT) can be one of the world’s strongest assets in achieving and sustaining a prosperous, low-carbon economy - Michael Dell Green IT Key to Achieving a Low-Carbon Economy, 2008 6
  • 7. Emissions reduction – Indonesia’s commitment To reduce carbon emissions by 26% by 2020, based on business-as- usual levels. With enhanced international assistance, Indonesia offered an increased reduction of 41% by 2020, based on business-as-usual levels President Dr. Yudhoyono, COP-15 Denmark. 7
  • 8. The Business Case for Green IT - IT infrastructure typically accounts for more than 20% of the energy used in an office building, with up to 70% attributed to IT in some offices (especially with a large data centre) - IT-related electricity operating costs (and emissions) can easily be cut by 15% (just by doing simple things) or more than 50% (by deployment of more energy efficient systems) - It’s about basic process improvements to efficiency (including change in organisational behaviour use or culture) AND judicious deployment of energy-efficient products 8
  • 9. Why A Framework? • There is no clear definition of Green IT – It means different things to different people • There are many components to Green IT – No standardised way of representing them • A Framework provides a consistent structure – A reference point for further analysis 9
  • 10. The Evolution of the Framework • Separate and independent work by Connection Research, RMIT University (2008) & applied work at Aust. National University (2009- ) • Similar approaches, similar methodology – agreement to combine into a single framework and methodology • Subsequent refinement through input from many users, vendors, consultants, academics 10
  • 11. The First Thoughts (2008) Connection Research RMIT University “Pentagram” “G-Readiness” Enabling the End User Business Efficiencies Measuring & Data Centre Monitoring Efficiencies Procurement & Lifecycle Five Key Components of Green IT Hierarchical Breakdown 11
  • 12. The Combined Green IT Framework (version 3 – 2010) Attitude Policy Desktop Practice Mobile Technology Metrics Measure Monitor Manage Mitigate 12
  • 13. The Green IT Framework – Key Pillars Desktop Mobile 13
  • 14. First pillar Desktop Mobile 14
  • 15. Second pillar Desktop Mobile 15
  • 16. Third pillar Desktop Mobile 16
  • 17. Fourth pillar Desktop Mobile 17
  • 18. The Green IT Framework – Key Actions Attitude Policy Practice Technology Metrics Measure Monitor Manage Mitigate 18
  • 19. How it Works • Each Pillar (and each component within each pillar) is affected by the five actions • We can measure, via a survey, the extent to which an organisation is enacting each action in each component of each pillar • We can then quantify each of these and create and Index 19

  • 21. The Measurement Methodology – Green IT Capability Maturity Model 21
  • 22. The Framework “Package” • Survey for benchmarking • Executive and IT Technical Training • Organisational Certification – ComputersOFF • Individual Certification - CompTIA 22
  • 23. The Online Survey • 30-40 minutes • Questions on each aspect of the Framework • All quantified according to the Capability Maturity Model • Non-technical – policies, implementation, practices, etc. 23
  • 24. The Benchmarking Methodology • All data collected for all respondents – Quantified and normalised • Each response applied to the appropriate Pillar of the Framework – plus the “Metrics” action • Allows for the creation of five Indexes – Weighted average of all responses to that Pillar, expressed as 0-100 24
  • 25. The Green IT Readiness Index (GrITx) • Overall Index (0-100) comprising five sub-indexes • Allows for benchmarking between industries, countries, and for a single organisation over time • A unique tool for quantifying Green IT maturity (or “readiness”) 25
  • 26. Green IT in Australia – Survey 2010 Measures by Pillar ... 26
  • 27. Measures by Industry ... 27
  • 28. Measures over Time ... 28
  • 29. An Emerging International Standard • Australia (2009 and 2010) • United Kingdom Government (completed) • United Kingdom Industry (underway) • US industry (underway) • India (completed) • Scandinavia (under discussion) • ASEAN (under discussion) 29 • Indonesia (under discussion)
  • 30. The Green IT Executive Training Ideal for Top-Executives / IT / Facility professionals who have decision making authority over a company's IT infrastructure Ideal for IT / Facility professionals who work in implementing green IT initiatives such as IT managers, data center or facilities/operations managers, IT technicians, and system or network administrators Strata Green IT Certificate Courses not only teach organisations  how they can minimise the emissions caused by their IT systems but also  how IT can be used as an enabler 30
  • 31. Organisational Certification Certification program is designed to easily identify and recognise those organisations who commit themselves to reducing their impact on the environment, through their energy-efficient and 31 green IT initiatives.
  • 32. Closing Words - Go Green and Realise the Cost Savings! • Green IT including Energy Efficiency is a Competitiveness Issue • Make a commitment to action • The Green IT Framework is a “tried and tested” tool for quantifying Green IT maturity (or “readiness”) 32
  • 33. About International Green IT Week • Goal: - to mobilise both consumers and corporates - to take action on Green IT • Ambassadors: to help with both CO and Green IT Week brand awareness and green IT education. Global Ambassadors confirmed in Sydney, Germany and Italy, spreading the word. • Many Activities: – 3-day Virtual Event - confirmed 20 green IT experts and speakers from around the globe including Australia, US, UK, Italy, Germany and Canada – Physical activities - e.g. Education, Networking Events, Cocktail Reception, PR launches, etc. 33
