Some changes are significant and are not really gadget related as such. These are rather changes to the way in which the overall company operates.
- External hosting. With Cloud based technologies it’s increasingly possible to have external companies host your systems so that you log in to them remotely. This ‘sharing’ of a remote resource allows you not only to spend less money upfront on systems but also to reduce the power usage required to run them.
- Outsourced services. As well as hosting systems with another company, larger companies in particular are increasingly looking for other providers to provide services. These usually include support functions including IT, finance and other operational areas. Such a move reduces a company’s headcount and therefore its energy consumption.
All devices and changes come at a cost. Some might be only a few pounds where others could involve changes running into the millions for a large business. It’s important to do a proper cost benefit analysis whenever you’re investing money in order to save in the future.
