GREEN: The New Black in Corporate Computing

Several weeks ago, I blogged about Michael Dell and members of our ReGeneration team were in Washington, DC to participate in the IT Energy Efficiency Summit hosted by CIO magazine. Gary Beach, publisher emeritus at CIO, conducted a moderated Q&A with Michael during the event, which was attended by about 100 CIOs and other IT decision makers from the public and private sectors.

In this recent article, Are You Green?, Gary recaps his discussion with Michael and suggests that "green is the new black in corporate computing" – an IT fashion point that Dell strongly agrees with! Gary shares key takeaways for any CIO who wants to introduce green into their operations, including getting your CEO on board with your energy efficiency initiatives; reducing power consumption in your data center; aligning your IT and facilities departments; and holding your suppliers accountable.

Gary intends to continue his green conversation with Michael with an online Q&A to be published on or around Earth Day, April 22. Stay tuned for more details on that. In the meantime, check out the following vlog in which Gary shares his thoughts and observations on the noticeable "awakening" happening amongst CIOs around the growing need to go green.
