Invitation Workshop Green Software

March 17, 2011
Green IT Amsterdam Region and the Software Improvement Group are organizing a workshop on the effects of software on energy usage. The workshop will be held on April 12, from 15.30 to 18.00, in Amsterdam. We would like to invite you to participate.
Energy Usage of ICT has become an important cost factor for many organizations. Together with growing pressure from regulations on sustainable ICT usage this has led to a widespread interest in Green IT strategies. Currently most of the strategies for energy efficiency focus on the optimization of data center infrastructure and server hardware. Yet, many experts agree that the software plays a vital role too, but there is still little awareness among ICT owners of the big optimization potential on the software side.

The Software Improvement Group is currently developing an approach to help the industry in getting their software greener. We will showcase the first pilot project at Centric. To demonstrate the impact that optimization on the software can have we invited a speaker of the popular social network site Hyves to present their own experiences with the subject and give us some insights into their advanced setup. The afternoon will be concluded with a discussion on what we can do to ensure that all large organizations in the Amsterdam region can profit from energy efficient software design in the near future.
