Last Week, This Week..

Last Week I attended the ITIL v3 Foundation course in London. I recommend any IT person to go on this course as it really does bring everything together and into focus.

Carbon3IT Ltd has also received its Irish Tax Clearance certificate, allowing us to work in Ireland on public sector contracts.

This week I have been working on a number of projects that are in the pipeline for later this year, obviously some of them are commercial in confidence so I am not able to reveal the identity of the clients or the projects, so you'll just have to wait.

I've been amused at some of recent news releases from Green IT Land, in particular, the notion that Green IT strategies are dead
Whilst I agree that pure Green IT Virtualisation and energy management strategies are only one part of an overall sustainable approach that organisations need to take, its a bit of a leap to suggest that pure Green IT strategies are actually dead in the water, they've hardly begun.
This view of course is exactly what you would expect from someone who is paid to forecast things for the large corporates, as can be indicated by the long list of consultancies in the article.It is strange that this seems to co-incide with the Governments change of procurement strategy to include greater involvement from SME's.

The other was that  pc power management would move to the cloud

As with all forecasts, take this with a pinch of salt, the key to all this is money and the current lack of it is preventing a lot of good energy saving projects from commencing.

Anyway, have a good weekend I'll be working on the final stages of a proposal and looking after a small child.
