The Case for Going Green

By Mark Brousseau

Some interesting data points from Information Management magazine on the case for going green:

… Eighty-eight percent of financial services executives told IBT Enterprises that green initiatives are important to their financial institution; 68 percent are converts because of lower operational costs.

… Datamonitor reports that tighter regulatory measures and advances in technology are feeding renewed interest in green IT.

… McKinsey & Company says data center energy use doubled between 2000 and 2006, and by 2012 is expected to double again.

… BPM Forum found that nearly 20 percent of those polled spend more than $1 million per year on IT energy consumption, and 8 percent spend more than $10 million.
