Globally over the past five years $8 trillion has been spent on IT, which is more than half the US GDP. Maintaining this huge amount of IT accounts for 70-80 percent of each year’s IT budget. CIOs want to reduce this figure to save money or to have more discretionary spend, but lack the tools to do so. 1E is the pioneer and global leader in Efficient IT solutions. 1E’s mission is to identify unused IT, help remove it and optimize everything else. 1E solutions help reduce servers, network bandwidth constraints, software license bills, energy consumption and many time consuming IT tasks. Some of world’s most prestigious names feature among 1400 organisations using 16 million 1E software licences to reduce their IT maintenance bills while providing a more responsive service to their users.
