IDC Conference
Green IT: the IT Department at the heart of energy management performance - Paris, May 29

Ensuring that business activities take environmental concerns into account is much more than just a passing trend. It’s more than just an ethical issue: keeping an organization’s carbon footprint under control is becoming an urgent necessity, particularly given current and forthcoming regulatory constraints and, above all, inexorably rising energy costs.

And this affects the IT sector at least as much as any other. We enter the age where businesses are measured by the tons of CO2 they generate, and it is still true that IT hardware is consuming more and more electricity. The growing number of Data Centers, the development of technologies with a high energy consumption, and the introduction of distributed IT architectures are all accompanied by a rising demand for energy. So the IT Department is effectively responsible for generating some substantial increases in costs, to the point where energy management is now among the key operational factors that need to be kept under control.

Similarly, although it may initially have been quite a ‘conceptual’ notion, the concept of ‘Green Computing’ or ‘Green IT’ is no longer just a marketing ploy used to differentiate hardware and software solution providers, but a fully-fledged and deeply serious approach to doing business that has to guide IT Departments.

This IDC conference aims to set out the current situation in full, and identify the issues we have to face up to now, along with the solutions that are available to you to resolve the balancing act of achieving economic, technological AND environmentally-friendly performance.

Did you know that in the space of just five years, the cost of the energy to run their computer systems will represent 60% of overall company energy spending?

Bull, a Platinum sponsor
Didier Lamouche, Bull Chairman and CEO, will deliver a keynote address entitled: ‘In the face of the growing demands generated by Green IT, a new vision: the Bio Data Center™’, at 12.25pm, during the session dedicated to the future prospects for Green IT.

In addition, Bruno Pinna, Bull Corporate Marketing Director, will lead a seminar on how to deploy a Bio Data Center:
- Energy efficiency and virtualization
- Engineering the Data Center
- Tools for managing complexity
- Control.
