CIOs Bullish on Green IT, but to What Effect?
Introduction

Ovum conducts bi-annual global surveys to understand the complexities of IT decision makers’ attitudes toward IT investment. These surveys probe hundreds of CIOs and other IT decision makers with questions about technology deployments and planned investment. Ovum recently began including questions about green IT to gain insight IT buyers' plans regarding green IT.

Features and benefits
  • This report describes and interprets the results of a survey of 500 CIOs around the globe about their green IT plans.
  • Green IT investments may not deliver as much environmental benefit as they could if directed toward technologies with greater carbon impact.
Highlights

More than two-thirds of respondents currently invest in green IT, and an additional 9% plan to do so by 2012. While this increase is encouraging, the survey also shows a potential disconnect between the types of green IT being earmarked for investment and the extent to which this technology will benefit the environment.

Your key questions answered
  • Is Green IT still a high priority for enterprise technology investment?
What is driving Green IT investment -- compliance, cost savings, operational
