Hey everyone, greetings from TechEd Berlin. We wanted to make you aware of a new whitepaper that has been published by MSIT Showcase, where we highlight best practices and success stories from within Microsoft IT department. We are rally pleased to release this paper. Some highlights.
Microsoft is committed to an ambitious goal of cutting its enterprise carbon emissions by 30% over a five-year period. To help contribute to this goal, Microsoft IT wanted to build on its System Center Configuration Manager 2007 desktop management infrastructure to implement a flexible and centralized power management solution. MSIT also wanted to fully leverage power management capabilities in products such as Windows 7. The solution needed to effectively manage, monitor, and report client power utilization across the enterprise.
Using System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, Microsoft IT deployed a power management solution to 165,000 desktop and laptop computers. Through new tools that enable centralized management, powerful reporting, and a deep understanding of current power settings, MSIT realized significant energy and cost savings. The solution provides a high degree of flexibility, and different levels of enforcement. In addition to delivering on power usage and carbon reduction goals, the solution also delivers on the Microsoft IT-specific goal of driving product feedback to deliver a successful power management product.
