Recently, Pike Research – a leading cleantech research firm – predicted that the PC and server power management software market would increase five-fold by 2015. While that sounds bold and aggressive, the reality is that PC power management is now gaining mainstream adoption. PC power management has been adopted by less than 25% of organizations. If you subscribe to Geoffrey Moore’s theory on technology adoption, PC power management is about to “enter the tornado” for rapid adoption. Why? Cost is a leading factor. Given the extended downturn, driving down operating costs is still a critical initiative in most organizations. Managing a large fleet of PCs is expensive from an energy standpoint accounting for roughly 30% of IT’s energy consumption. Taking a proactive approach to measuring and controlling energy usage pays for itself rapidly – often less than 6 months – and faster with utility rebates. Plus, the dividends from energy savings are recurring with larger organizations reaping over a million dollars annually.
