Data centres are traditionally at the heart of most organisations’ electronic data processing and computer operations. But despite increasing focus on environmental considerations and efficient resource usage, most data centres are currently believed to have excessive wastage and over-sized carbon footprints – and to be far from green.

How about your data centre? What do you know about its carbon/green ratings? How can they be measured, monitored and improved?


Is your business affected by/prepared for the UK Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) initiative (CRC)?

Come to this event to learn more about tools and techniques to help to make your data centre – and other aspects of IT – more clean, green and environment-friendly.


Our expert presenters include:


    * BOB CROOKS, Chairman, BCS Green IT Specialist Group

    * NEAL TILLEY, Business Development Director for Europe, Alcatel-Lucent

    * RICHARD LANYON-HOGG, Executive IT Architect, IBM

    * ZAHL LIMBUWALA, Chairman, BCS Data Centre Specialist Group
