Increase in Green IT budgets in next 12 months

BANGALORE Corporate pressure to go green and desire to strengthen an organizational environmental standing was driving Indian enterprises to explore green options-- with 90 percent IT executives expecting an increase in 'green' IT budgets over the next 12 months.

Nearly 24 per cent expect an increase of more than 10 per cent in their green IT budgets, according to the Indian findings of the Green IT report released by Symantec Corp.
Close to 60 percent respondents from large enterprises from India state they are at least discussing or are in trial stages of green IT strategy, while 39 percent are already in the process of 'implementing green.'

IT decision makers are increasingly justifying green IT solutions by more than cost and IT efficiency benefits (83) percent). Reducing cooling costs (91 percent) and corporate pressure to be green (86 percent) scored higher as reasons behind these enterprises shifting to greener options.

Furthermore, 70 percent of the respondents are now responsible or cross-charged for the electricity consumed in data centre-bringing visibility and accountability to bear on the ultimate consumer of these resources.

As CIOs take a serious relook at their strategies, green initiatives figure high on the `must do' list to perk their data centers from technology, business and environment point of view, according to Anand Naik, Director System Engineering, Symantec India.
