Sustainable IT (bibtex)
by Edward Curry, Brian Donnellan
Abstract:
This chapter provides an overview of sustainable IT best practices followed by discussion of the chal- lenges faced by IT organizations in delivering sustainable IT. Green for IT practices covered include how software should be designed to minimize its resource usage, how the energy efficiency of data centers (DCs) can be improved through the use of virtualization, air management, and cooling, and the life cycle assessment (LCA) process that is used to determine the environmental impact of a product or service. Practices for IT for Green include how energy can be effectively managed with Green Information Systems (IS). Next, the chapter examines the challenges facing IT organizations as they put sustainable IT best practices into action, including how to benchmark the maturity of the sustainable IT. The chapter finishes with a brief look at future sustainable IT research directions and with a summary.
