HP: Give Budget Incentives to Managers that Buy Green
HP is floating the idea that IT managers should be given incentives for buying energy-saving products, reports ZDNet.
Speaking in connection with the launch of a range of HP energy-efficient PCs, which the company claims could be more than 45 percent more efficient than existing systems, the article quotes Todd Kruse, HP business desktop product manager, as saying that its important that IT managers be given budget incentives to improve IT efficiency.
Kruse explained that energy-efficient hardware was often more expensive than commoditised equipment and that this would have to be allowed for in IT budgets. But if the IT department managed to lower its power costs as a result, these savings should be included in subsequent IT budgets, according to the article.
