IBM Endpoint Manger for Power Management (Overview)


Published on

Save $20-$50 per computer per year by automatically putting devices in lower-power states when they are unused. Much more granular policy setting, "Green" reports, savings models, client-side dashboard, coverage for PCs and Macs, and continuous enforcement set this solution apart from relying on the built-in power management settings.

  7. 7. © 2012 IBM Corporation7 Annual Energy Cost Savings  Granular policy setting and continuous enforcement. Fine-grained controls for hibernation/standby, subsystem-only shutdown, and save-work-before-shutdown options that can be enforced at the endpoint Create and deploy complex power profiles that support applications by time of day and day of week  Flexible targeting. Individuals, groups, buildings, hardware manufacturers, models, Active Directory OUs, and more  Multi-platform. Windows, Windows Servers, and Mac OS X  Coordinate with HVAC. Export detailed reports and scheduling to coordinate with HVAC systems for additional savings. How do I directly improve the bottom line without impacting headcount? Many utility companies offer rebates for the purchase of PC power management tools such as IBM Endpoint Manager. These rebates can cover most, if not all, of the purchase price.
  8. 8. © 2012 IBM Corporation8 Enable IT Maintenance  Scheduling. Schedule Wake from Standby, Distributed Wake-on-LAN, and Last Man Standing or wake up individual, groups of computers as needed without impacting the schedule  Patch management integration. Use a single solution for patch and power management to ensure updates are applied in a timely fashion  Cures PC Insomnia. Intelligently measures user idle time, overcomes issue where computers don’t enter standby when they should  Minimal infrastructure impact. Installs in just hours, nearly invisible impact to network and endpoints with small agent footprint and on-endpoint monitoring and enforcement. How do I ensure power management activities don’t impact other IT management needs? High-level reports help administrators understand their environment, and provide easy access to drill- down details.
  9. 9. © 2012 IBM Corporation9 “Green” Initiatives How do I contribute to larger organizational “Green” initiatives and marketing  Green reporting. Easily produce reports on CO2 reductions, translated into “trees planted” or “cars taken off the road”  Modeling. Before implementing a PC power management program, model multiple scenarios to determine how “green” you can get  Accuracy. Override power and CO2 assumptions by hardware profile, location, and monitor type for custom reporting
  10. 10. © 2012 IBM Corporation10 End User Participation How do I get end users on board with this project?  Opt-in profiles. Create multiple power profiles and let users opt-in to the one that best fits their needs. Typically users opt-in to a much stricter profile than they would have tolerated under a mandatory approach.  Client-side dashboard. End users can see their unique savings and green impact or change to a different profile from their desktop  Auto save. Automatically save work prior to shut down  Remote wake-up. Wake up just their machine remotely from a web page.  Extend hardware life, employee productivity. Schedule older computers to wake-up 30 minutes early so it is fully booted up when the employee arrives “Brand” your power profiles with names that match organizational “green” initiatives and watch as end users volunteer for stricter policies (and greater savings)
  11. 11. © 2012 IBM Corporation11 Penn State Power-savings initiative expected to deliver $800,000 annual savings The need: With energy costs doubling, Penn State looked to reduce unnecessary power consumption from leaving classroom, lab, and departmental computers on, when they were not in use. The solution: The University implemented an endpoint management solution that combines power, lifecycle, patch and security management to reduce energy costs while improving the reliability and security of campus computers. The benefit:  Reduced energy costs by US$288,000 per year with annual savings expected to reach US$800,000  Decreased IT time required to manage classroom and lab computers  Improved security with faster deployment of patches and software applications “We expect almost US$800,000 in annual savings, once all of our approximately 20,000 workstations are under Tivoli Endpoint Manager and similar power management settings are applied.” —Chris Sacksteder, Manager, Systems Development Group, Penn State Solution components:  IBM Endpoint Manager for Power Management  IBM Endpoint Manger for Lifecycle Management TIP14388-USEN-00

  13. 13. © 2012 IBM Corporation13 St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney (SV&MHS) Gaining visibility, control and compliance over PCs The need: The IT staff at SV&MHS manages more than 2,700 PCs. With a diverse set of academic, medical practitioner and administrative users, the IT team must provide access to the latest technologies while protecting patient privacy. The IT team also wanted to reduce energy usage and computing costs through PC power management and efficient security configuration, patch compliance and license management. The solution: Using IBM® Tivoli® Endpoint Manager, built on BigFix technology, SV&MHS has a single solution for patch management, configuration compliance, power management, asset discovery and software usage reporting. The software’s ability to operate outside of direct network connections has provided SV&MHS with visibility and control over 100 percent of the PCs the IT team supports. The benefit:  Significantly mitigated risk exposure while also improving regulatory compliance  Freed up IT staff to execute additional strategic projects  Realized cost savings through PC power management and the elimination of software licenses “We now have a rich systems remediation platform from which to deploy endpoint security. Once we discovered the power management and application deployment capabilities, we knew we had found the complete solution we were looking for.” —Peter Param, IT Security Manager, St Vincents & Mater Health Sydney Solution components:  IBM Endpoint Manager for Power Management  IBM Endpoint Manager for Security & Compliance  IBM Endpoint Manager for Software Use Analysis TIP14316-USEN-00
