Building a Green IT Team is an authoritative, insider's perspective on developing an eco-friendly approach to business through IT-driven practices and policies. Featuring CTOs and CIOs representing some of the top companies in the nation, this book provides best practices for establishing a green IT mentality. These authors offer tips for setting green goals, reducing redundancies, and managing power consumption. They outline the many small, specific changes that should start within the IT department but will make a big difference when applied across an entire organization. They also demonstrate how to leverage IT by devising a long-term strategy that will benefit the earth as well as the bottom line of the company. The breadth of perspectives represented enable readers to get inside some of the leading green technology minds of today, as these insiders offer up their thoughts around the keys to instituting sustainable business systems through the IT department.
Inside the Minds provides readers with proven business intelligence from C-Level executives (Chairman, CEO, CFO, CMO, Partner) from the world's most respected companies nationwide, rather than third-party accounts from unknown authors and analysts. Each chapter is comparable to an essay/thought leadership piece and is a future-oriented look at where an industry, profession or topic is headed and the most important issues for the future. Each author was hand-picked by the Inside the Minds editorial board to author a chapter for this book.
