Since I started Carbon3IT Ltd in August 2009 (we didn't start trading until Jan 10) I've undertaken quite a few training courses to further my knowledge and to get "certified". These courses included:
ISEB Foundation Certificate in Green IT
Prince 2 Foundation & Practitioner
ISEB EU Code of Conduct for Data Centre Energy Efficiency
ITIL v3 Foundation
I've also managed to complete and be awarded a BSc (Hons) in Technology with the Open University.
I think that training courses are excellent events from which to gain knowledge and to meet new contacts to further the Green/Sustainable IT agenda, albeit with individuals that already have some degree of knowledge in the subject.
This week we met with a London University to progress some discussions for the installation of the Greentrac PC monitoring and management tool.
We also had some discussions with ITAASL regarding the new British Computer Society Award programme CEEDA, which is an award for Data Centre Energy Efficiency that builds on the EU Code of Conduct best practices guidance insofar that whilst the EU CoC allows DC operators to sign up for the scheme and delay the implementation of best practice into a 3 year time frame, the CEEDA award assesses DC's on actual implementation of the best practices that have already been carried out.
We will provide information on how Carbon3IT Ltd will be assisting the programme once all the final details have been worked out, watch this space as it were.
Next week we have a meeting with a large local authority to discuss Sustainable IT issues and the possibility of another Greentrac Proof of Concept trial.
We have noted that IT energy efficiency seems to have become a "hot topic" in the industry media pages and this can only be a good thing.
We have a number of events planned in the Spring 2011 where we intend to push the Green IT agenda and details will be provided on this blog and our website closer to the event.
In the meantime have a great weekend and please visit our website at www.carbon3it.com for further information on Green/Sustainable IT
