Green computing event targets public-sector IT

digital-sphereUK virtualisation specialist Intercept plans to host a Green Government Computing event next week to help public-sector technology leaders learn how to improve IT efficiencies while measuring environmental impact.

Scheduled for 19 May at the Marriott County Hall, London, the event will focus on the widespread adoption of practical technology that offers Government departments both financial and environmental savings. It is targeting public-sector IT departments as many do not have the resources and specialist skills to manage and implement virtualisation.

Richard Gilder, chief executive at Intercept, says the public sector can learn from peers in local government about how to improve service and delivery while reducing costs through virtualisation.

“Many organisations are intimidated by the challenge of implementing new software such as virtualisation,” Gilder said. “We are delighted to stage this event as it’s vital the public sector has an opportunity to learn how new software and technology can add value for their citizens and local communities.”

Keith Clark, head of business improvement at Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and keynote speaker at the event, says the results achieved through virtualisation are too good to ignore.

“Virtualisation has been hugely positive for our organisation,” Clark said. “We have reduced our energy bill by a staggering 44 per cent and predicted a saving of around £1.7 million on projects during a three-year period. Our citizens are benefiting from virtualisation right now. Council workers are freed from their desks, information is secure and always available, and consolidation through smarter solutions create a greener, more flexible working environment creating leaders in government computing.”

Other speakers set to attend the event are Iain Berry, server manager at Bracknell Forest Borough Council, and Jason Mason, infrastructure manager and customer support at Basildon Council.
