(PRWEB) November 3, 2010
sustainableIT, a pioneer in the Green IT and sustainable computing market today announced the expansion of its services capabilities on a global scale.
Based in South Africa, which is recognised as a low cost delivery destination, sustainable IT offers its clients the ability to deliver a sustainable computing strategy at a fraction of the cost of consultancies based on foreign shores.
“Our services engagement model has been designed to be delivered wherever our customers are located, leveraging low carbon technology such as web and teleconferencing where appropriate. This provides our global customers with access to a low cost, highly skilled consultancy arm, geared to deliver a sustainable computing strategy anywhere on the planet," says Tim James, CEO of sustainableIT.
“As a Green IT company, we strive to ‘practice what we preach’ when it comes to utilising technology to reduce emissions. Consulting engagements can be delivered remotely with the same quality through adopting web or cloud based offerings,” James continues.
The Green IT services market is set to expand exponentially and sustainableIT is well positioned to assist its clients in embracing a sustainable computing strategy. For example, IT FootprinterTM , a unique offering from sustainableIT, delivers a carbon footprint of the IT service based on the globally recognised Greenhouse Gas Protocol accounting standard, thus allowing customers to integrate the output with your broader CSR reporting initiatives.
“Our engagement model is tailored to assist our clients from footprinting, through to analysis and transformation. This includes both analysis of the IT service as well as leveraging opportunities to reduce carbon through technology in business operations,” James elaborates.
“As a niche player, we have recognised that our knowledge and expertise around technology and the low carbon economy is a commodity that can be leveraged globally and with this in mind we have developed our Jump Start programme,” he concludes.
sustainableIT was established in February 2008 and is based in Cape Town, South Africa. The company is a pioneer in the Green IT and sustainable computing market and was recognised by Global Industry Analysts (Green IT Services – A Global Strategic Business Report, June 2010) as a key global player in this emerging market.
