WASHINGTON, D.C., Apr. 09 /CSRwire/ - Top Specialists from all over the U.S. will congregate in the nation's capital on Earth Day, April 22, to set out the state-of-the-art in green computing, which, they say, is the key to all green initiatives, and thus the long-term road to sustainability and profits.
The Green IT Economic Summit will take place in the Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner, Virginia. It will principally address business and technology leaders, and nail down what can done today to ensure tomorrow's revenue and viability.
Forrester, the topmost research organization in the field, will unveil at the Summit, the findings of their nationwide survey of current practices and problems, the evolving procurement criteria and the progress of green service providers.
Microsoft, a leading proponent of green practices, will present both the innovations now being implemented through its worldwide operations and the more dramatic changes that lie ahead for Green IT improvements.
These will be followed by major presentations and analyses from major corporations and specialist organizations, such as HP, British Telecom, SRA, Marriott, Symantec, Raritan, Carbonfund, Green Science Exchange and distinguished university centers.
Green IT 2.0, say the conference spokesmen, is today not just a means of saving energy and reducing emissions, critical as they are to our economy. Green IT is also the gateway to life-and-death issues of organizational sustainability and the eventual bottom-line. "It is an economic summit, not a technology summit," said Conference Director, Teresa Moraska, "and we hope to make a difference to the success of our organizations."
