  48. 48. Key outcomes of your pilot Piloting PC power management will help IT professionals determine: • Scope. Identify PCs and apps that can not be power managed. • Impact on IT. Understand the impact of power management on the network and existing client management practices. • Group users by tolerance. Create user groups based on tolerance for PC power management to serve as the basis for policy creation. • Policy development. Tailor your approach (e.g. “scheduled”, “always- on”, “hybrid”) and frequency (e.g. monitors off after 15 minutes, system standby after 30 minutes) by user groups. • Business case. Estimate the financial savings potential in aggregate and per PC, along with carbon emissions savings if that’s important. 50 Entire contents © 2009 Forrester Research, Inc. All rights reserved.
