  • Our approach to out-tasking IT is similar to the one we use for manufacturing. Let’s focus on the differences between this and a traditional outsourcing approach Our out-tasking approach contrasts with outsourcing on a number of key dimensions including (i) granularity of what is being “farmed out” and (ii) degree of operational control. LEAD IN OPTIONAL SCRIPT BACKROUND DATA KEY POINT
  • The question becomes what is a ‘green’ job? For us at cisco is not just a question of developing more sustainable, green networking technology but that the role that Network technician and professional will play in transforming some of these old ‘stove’ pipes industries like construction and utilities. The network will be critical in the greening of construction, travel, how we conduct business, healthcare Smart Grid Merge IT and energy technology into an intelligent infrastructure enabling 2-way communication among generation plants, power transmission facilities, utilities, building sensors and meters, individual electrical devices, and home appliances Commercial Buildings Currently consuming 70% of US energy, and emitting 39% of greenhouse gas Digital networks can centralize, analyze, distribute and conserve energy Broadband Deployment New home high-speed connections will increase telecommuters to 19 million by 2012 2 Saving 1.5 billion commuting hours, reducing 5% of gasoline consumption, and creating 2 million jobs Broadband Infrastructure: Cabling support and fiber termination, ISP installers, help desk installers and IP telephony jobs (should we mention Smart grid again here) Virtual Collaboration Network-enabled collaboration and conferencing encourage telecommuting and limit business travel Greener IT Operations Can eliminate 7.8 metric gigatons of greenhouse gas by 2020 (15% of global emissions) 3 Replacing older, less-efficient equipment; and monitoring and managing usage Deploying Virtualization (multiple functions running on a single physical device) 1 Boston Consulting Group, www.bcg.com/about_bcg/media_center/press_releases.jsp?id=2792 2 ITIF, Executive Summary, www.itif.org/files/Telecommuting.pdf 3 McKinsey Quarterly, www.mckinseyquarterly.com/ghost.aspx?ID=/information_Technology/Management/How_IT_can_cut_carbon_emissions_2221 Healthcare IT In Health IT alone, the digital implementation of EHR will drastically reduce paper waste, and will ensure more efficient quality healthcare for individuals Computerized diagnostic tools, close collaboration among caregivers, precisely calibrated treatment, and extensive recordkeeping ARRA Healthcare IT Initiatives $20 billion for automating medical records and building communication, to improve quality of care, increase efficiency, and make treatment more affordable Develop a large workforce for network administration, voice, data, video and image technology, database management, and data assurance (confidentiality, integrity and availability) Health IT: Network administrators and electronic health record (EHR) technicians for physician offices, third party contractors, hospitals, and application providers Key Functional Areas Electronic medical records Telemedicine and collaboration Privacy and security Patient advocacy and self-determination
  • These are the 10 fastest growing occupations in the US through 2014, according to Money Magazine. You’ll note that IT jobs, from network analysts to software engineers and database administrators comprise 5 out of 10 of the fastest growing jobs on the list. Clearly, careers in information technology will play an important role in the US economy now and in the years to come
  • Title message: WRI partnership @ the Workfroce that will be needed to transform IT Healthcare into a green One example of a green career with strong growth potential, is Electronic Health Records systems management. These careers require combined skills in Information Technology as well as administration to help hospitals and clinics make the transition from paper-based health records to digital records management. The digital transition will not only be good for the environment, but will improve operations and individual patient care. The American Health Information Management Association believes this transition to digital health systems will require approximately 150,000 workers trained in that field.

  • We’re now going to look at one last opportunity from the Dept. of Commerce through NTIA (National Telecommunications and Information Administration) in the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), with $200 million designated for Public Computer Centers. This is a competitive grant where local agencies will apply directly to NTIA. Applications are expected to be available by June, 2009, with a funding deadline after that. There appears to be a 20% nonfederal match requirement as well and three rounds of applications. The purpose of this $200 million grant is to expand public computer center capacity, including at community colleges and public libraries and other community support organizations, to increase the use of broadband in the community.. Overall objectives and activities include providing broadband education, awareness, training, access, equipment support In testifying to Congress on April 2, the NTIA had this to say about this grant: Schools, universities, libraries, community centers, job training centers and hospitals are all community anchor institutions that need broadband connectivity. We view these grants as a test-bed or proof of concept for sustainable, viable, and scalable projects. For example, we encourage partnerships between small businesses, municipalities, and others that may demonstrate nontraditional but effective ways of getting broadband into communities.
