Go green and manage your costs

Along with the energy-saving demands of the green agenda, today’s unfavourable economic climate has pushed cost management back to the top of the boardroom agenda. The effect on IT and procurement departments is that they must now ensure technology investments not only demonstrate an organisation’s social responsibility credentials, but also reduce the price of doing business.

Go green and manage your costs

"We can safely assume that the current economic climate will shine spotlights across our organisations, requiring that every department is running efficiently and providing ever more tangible business value," says Chris Gabriel, marketing & solutions director at Logicalis UK.

"The big challenge is that the IT infrastructure has to be leaner and greener. It has to be more agile, more able to provision new services when the business demands, and more compliant to legislation and regulation. If company technology can embody these attributes, then it also becomes simpler and more cost-effective to operate, and that in itself creates headroom for innovation."

Malcolm Kanter, CEO at Datek Solutions, says that managing costs and making savings have become major drivers in the way companies develop their IT infrastructure. "Businesses today are required to show a healthy return on investment (ROI) when updating their infrastructure. What they require therefore is software that makes their IT more agile and their users more productive."
