Australian IT users are less than halfway down the path to effective Green IT. Connection Research’s second annual Green IT survey shows that Australian organisations have become considerably greener in their usage of IT in the last 12 months, but that the rate of improvement varies considerably in different areas of Green IT.
The biggest areas of improvement are in enterprise IT, especially in the data centre, but Green IT practices in procurement and disposal have not improved at all, and even declined in many cases.
The level of maturity in different areas of Green IT is measured by Connection Research’s Green IT Readiness Index, which quantifies five different areas of Green IT: Lifecycle, End User, Enterprise, Enablement and Metrics. The Index is based on the Connection Research-RMIT Green IT Framework, which classifies the various components of Green IT.
