Per Gartner study released on Oct 3, 2012, ICT industry will be the early adopter of green IT and sustainability solutions in India. Niyasys is glad to share that we are leading Green-IT movement in education sector in India. Niyasys is will extend all the support industry and the Government would need to make India – a Sustainability-Friendly Nation.
Gartner Study Findings: India’s spending on green IT and sustainability initiatives will double from US$ 35 billion in 2010 to US$70 billion in 2015, according to Gartner.
In the Gartner report “Hype Cycle for Green IT and Sustainability in India, 2012,” Gartner says - “For the first time, a chapter on sustainable development and climate change was introduced in the government’s annual Indian Economic Survey, 2011-2012. The survey has suggested making lower-carbon sustainable growth a central element of India’s 12th five year plan, which commenced in April 2012. This will set the tone for future policy initiatives and regulatory measures from the Indian government that will drive the implementation of some technologies—such as advanced metering infrastructure, carbon capture and sequestration, intelligent transportation system, solar energy technology, building integrated PV systems, ecolabels and footprints, combined heat and power technology, e-waste, distributed power generation, and water management—necessary to usher in low-carbon sustainable growth.”
As enterprises embrace IT to improve productivity and drive growth, penetration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) infrastructure has grown rapidly during the past decade, as has the energy consumption and resulting carbon emissions of India’s ICT infrastructure.
“The operational cost of making energy-efficient resources available is pressuring CIOs in Indian companies to develop strategies to optimize ICT utilization—including companywide energy management—while not compromising on the growth or deployment of newer technologies,” Gartner said. “We are already beginning to see the use of energy-efficient technology in data centers, manufacturing facilities, and public buildings in India.”
