Add Your Comments

“Profiting From a Greener IT Infrastructure” is the theme of the IDC Green IT Forum East to be held Feb. 28 in New York City at the New York Marriott Downtown (formerly the New York Marriott Financial Center). The event will go beyond the hype of environmental goals for IT, and help CIOs and executives understand the business and economic impact of either being “Green” or not. Is there a payoff that is worth pursuing when businesses combine efforts surrounding Green technology and Green energy to create a Green business?

IDC analysts will examine how to manage the role of Green IT to effectively measure and capture market opportunities for energy efficient systems. The program will take a holistic view of IT asset disposal and power and cooling in light of fast evolving security and environmental legislation. Featuring end user case studies, IDC analysts and industry experts, this interactive Forum offers actionable advice for market leaders driving Green IT initiatives as well as provide a comparison of competitive Green IT initiatives in the marketplace.

Early registration of $495 is available until tomorrow (February 13), and goes up to $895 after that. Visit the IDC Green IT Forum East web site for more information and to sign up.
